Going rate seem to be between $1000 to $1500 to fix.

The surface rust is faily easy to fix, its the rust in between the layers of sheet metal is what is hard to fix. The body shop will almost need to do exploratory surgery to see how bad the rust is to determine if you will need those parts off of eBay. Did the body shop say they would need additional sheet metal to repair your rust?

Exploratory surgery is the best route. I am attempting a similar repair as yours. I knew at the base of the A-pillar where all the panels come together and the cowl had some rot but I assumed that behind the door hinges did too but they didnt. A bit of surface rust and that was all. The cowl and up by the windshield is keeping me busy enough but mine near the hinges wasnt bubbling thru nearly as bad as yours. Good luck with it. Rust sucks.

Didn't say I needed them right away but I picked them up for insurance. If needed the car won't have to sit waiting on locating parts. Hoping its not worse once they look into it. Waiting on the funds right now to drop it off. Hopefully in the next month I can do it.

I hit mine with a flat head and it went all the way through. Hoping mines not worse once cut open.
