There is a guy on this forum who fixed 2 original rusty fenders. Drilled out the spotwelds for that outer piece on the side and did a great job repairing the original fenders. Its a lot of work, but it can be done if you cut out the rust completely, so it doesn't come back. I can't find the thread but its here.

Edit: Here's the thread. Go to pages 8-9

I always said and I still do, I know I can't stop the rust but I want to slow it down. The fenders are the last place I expected to see rust. Taken apart, stripped to bare metal, washed down with wax and grease remover, sun dried, sprayed with epoxy primer, stored in the house, glued rather than welded back together, sprayed with 2K primer followed by base coat clear coat.

No way I will waste my time on another set of used fenders.
