Hi
Mine has rusted in the same places. I had the lower wheel arch inner cut out to put a new piece of metal in...that exposed the inner sill that was pretty non existent in that area. Had to cut out the outer sill to gain enough access to repair the inner sill, which needed part of the floor in that area cutting out and new metal adding.

Might be worth checking your inner sill before its all welding up.
