I think if this lip is that rusted that the damage at the wings might be far worse than it seems. Have you removed the panels inside the wings to investigate? There is no reason to repair the cosmetic problems before a thorough investigation of structural areas with an ice pick.

Cars with "no rust" have rust. Cars with "some rust" usually have lots of hidden rust. Remove the carpets and the stainless kick panels on the door sills and latch area. Stick a light up under the dash in the battery area.

If there is no structural damage treat surface rust with POR 15 and Bondo for a good looking daily driver.

Good luck,
