!!!RUST!!! JEEP ZJ Someone help!

I have rust underneath my brake booster from the firewall to the driver side strut. It's pretty bad. I thought of going to the junkyard a cut off a piece n weld but since it's in a bad area I need someone with experience or that has an idea on cost and IS IT WORTH SAVING MY JEEP!! Either way please help I'm in the ORLANDO area.

repair of that wont be cheap to have done and do it right. since it is more than just a single panel and as well many of those lines look like they are not good. Brake fluid is very caustic. was it leaking BF as it can in time remove paint and rust very badly. If you are good at welding thin metal and in very hard places to get to. it could be done but. thats a ton of stitch welding in hard angles/places to reach. many hard lines that look like will be no easier to remove than replace.

If it was not from leaking BF. than i would think there is more rust like it in other places not seen as well. even just a few places as bad as that would be hard to justify the repair/cost. Rust sucks and is insidious.
