Whilst structural adhesives are used in modern cars 3m say "Only bond to clean, rust-free, bare metal" which makes them unsuitable for many repairs to rusty floor pans. Prep is vital to get the bond.

If you are going to use it, you should also mechanically fasten the parts together. When Lotus first came out with the adhesive bonded aluminium chassis 25 years ago, they found in crash testing that the adhesives could peel and that fasteners reduced this substantially. Still a great product to use but the limitations need to be understood before making such repairs.
