Rust repair - rockers and quarters

Searched for awhile and didn't see much about this. My rockers are real crunchy underneath the plastic and I have the typical rear fender edge rot. Obviously no replacement panels exist, wondering if anyone had tried using most of the sedan panels, cutting off parts at the edges that aren't compatible. I'm kinda into the idea of replacing the plastic panel with smooth metal rockers like on the sedan, given that they are long enough. As far as the quarters go, maybe they are relatively the same fender line and shape as the sedan and one could use all but the bit by the taillight. I did resto work on several Beetles at a shop several years ago and those panels never quite fit right and always had to be modded around the edges to work with the car, which is what got my gears turning.
