Stepside Rear Fenders

Took off both to start taking bed apart. Long story short both have large areas of rusted out inner channel (where the bolt holes are). One has to have a patch on lower front of fender and otherwise they are in fairly good shape.
My question is, is it possible to weld on the inner channel? I should mention that I just bought a Eastwood mig welder and have never welded before.

Re: Stepside Rear Fenders

put up some pics of what your describing....if you've never welded, you sure don't want to learn how on thin sheetmetal.....but id say yes ,anything can be fixed..given enough time and effort
