How should I secure the fenders

My buddy just got a 1998 Jeep Cherokee sport and there is one fender that has some rust underneath it making it not really stay on. I'm gonna repair the spot with bondo and I'm thinking of getting some big bolt screws and putting it on like that. Of course gotta make it all match so I'd do it to the other three fenders. But is there a better way, without buying bigger fenders... a cheap fix, possibly better than my idea?

You're asking how to secure the wheel well flares, not the actual fenders themselves right? I like the idea of bolts with oversize washers inside the fender to overcome issues with the old holes rusting to oversize.
