Anyone here ever bother repairing the typical rust areas on their 08-09? Of course I'm talking about above the rear wheel wells and rocker panels. Mine only has around 80,000 miles on it and is in otherwise perfect shape. It's just a second vehicle but it's starting to get a little embarrassing. Do they even sell patch panels these days????

Fixed this one and then sold the car. See it around and the repair lasted over 5 NY rust belt winter. In the first pic, the flange has been re-created with Bondo and fiber glass. Then new skin of the same material. Not obvious but the inside metal also is gone. I filled the cavity from the inside with aerosol foam. Thin trimmed the excess off with a heated putty knife. Sealed from water with rattle can undercoat. Same old car seen in parking lot but opposite side. Other side looks fine but I did not get a pic of it.
