Replacing the whole inner fender is the only way to go. I use body seam sealer to seal around the plate after I install the new inner fenders, this prevents water from getting behind the plate and causing rust. I have'nt had any rust on any of the fixes yet. Make sure you use O.E.M. parts, the aftermarket parts really do not fit well. JB

JC Whitney would be considered aftermarket parts. Having had a body shop for many years and using both O.E.M and aftermarket parts I found that the only way to go is with O.E.M..<br>Not only do the O.E.M. parts fit properly, they are also the correct gauge of steel and incorperate the proper strength needed for the application. I've seen aftermarket parts fail due to premature rust and incorrect stampings in bumpers and fenders. JB
