    Quite a bit I would imagine as the battery tray connects to the chassis leg and the inner wing... would it not be easier to cut out the rusted part, cut the non rusted part from the repair panel and seam weld it in? - plenty of cleaning up and good rust prevention would be my thoughts.

    There's lots of spot welds, so you need to wire wheel it back to bare metal to find them all, then get yourself a decent spot weld drill bit and drill them all out. It's a bit of a faff and can be easier if you remove the wing as this gives better access to reseal the underneath.

    Depending on how bad the rust is / where it is it can be easier to do as Geeba says.

    If you look on Google for a how-to on Mk2 Golf you may find something, it's the same procedure.
