It all depends on how much time you want to put into it, if the metal has rotted through or it seems like it will in a couple of years than I cut that part out and weld on a new piece of metal. It can become very annoying if you have to do a lot of welding but it will be much better in the long run. With my car, once the body work is done i'm putting epoxy primer over the whole car, than working on the prep work. I'm expectiong about 180-200 hours of prep work only.
