Red face Rust at the corner behind front wheels


Could someone please tell me what's the best way to fix these rust spots on the fenders behind my front wheels...
The rest of the fender and car is in good shape, so I would want to keep the repairs to a minimum.

Bad news:
Looks nasty, both inner and outer fender is attacked. This requires welding in of new sections. No doubd replacement sections are available somewhere or can be made from sheet metal.
Welding of thin sheet metal is a specialist job and the galvanised material requires special treatment when done.
You may be lucky with used fenders but these will not be "fresh" either.

Alternatively you can go the temporary GRP route, the one with lots of bondo....
I would turn to a professional body worker for this.

Take care
