Replacement front frame rails on fox body

Hey guys so I have a 1989 stang gt, and found out about a month ago my framerails at the front were completely rotted out at the strut tower. Amazingly rest of frame seems to be ok no more rot in it. But quite abit of surface rust. Anyhow I was told 2000 to fix and the guy who quoted me had a 89 coupe roller with engine bay all done. Seems to be no rust rot at front on framerails and he said he had to weld a bit to get some rust out on the towers, looked like he did a gd job so I bought it. And before I got this roller I searched the Internet for days trying to find replacement front frame rails for my other car couldn't find nothing at all other than welding in tubed steel for a good fix, but I ain't a fabricator. So I bought this roller since it seems to be ok, but I do see rust on inside of frame rails makes me worry it's just going to rot from inside out. I wire wheeled the paint off frame rails and noticed the rails were perfect on the outside no rust, and are still solid. Question is can I spray the inside of framerails with something to make em last along time ( this is just going to be driven in summer)? And get this, I was NPD yesterday and they now have replacement framerails with the whole fender apron...thing is they say they are for 90-93 foxes, and I really want these for my stang that's still together..just wondering how hard would the install would be and if I could make these work on my 89. I love the car and don't want to junk it...any input is greatly appreciated thanks
