Default Trunk hinge brace rusted through fenderwell.

Wire brushing the rear inner fenderwells, I got some holes where the brace is attached. I suppose I can just weld a patch with sheet metal and under coat it? I dont want to get too extensive.

If it were me, I would cut out all of the rust. Then butt weld in new metal to patch whats been cut out. After that Id clean and treat all of the surrounding area to prevent future rust.

A picture would be helpful, but if there is anything in these pictures that would help you, it will only cost you for the ride.
