You should bodge it up as cheaply as possible and sell it. I've never seen a satisfactory result on any car with rust in that area without some drastic panel replacement.

Other than that, I guess it depends on what you are being quoted for. Are they welding in new metal or is it a rubdown, fill and spray job?
