ok here is what i would do and may not be everyones opinion

1. cut out the sill of the car to be repaired
2. inspect the inner sill in case there is rust and you need more of the donor car
3. wirebrush the inner sill and surrounding areas with a wire brush.
4. treat the inner gaurd and surrounding areas with rust converter and follows the instructions
5. paint the inner sill and surrounding areas
6. cut out the required panel out of the donor car with a bit of excess steel
7. trim the repair panel down to size
8. give the inside of the repair panel a coat of paint
9. remove the paint away from the edges to be welded 10mm will do
10. weld the panel in
11. finish of the panel accordingly with paint

spray some fish oil into the cavaties of your car as it will help prevent rust in the future

once again this is how i would do it personally

cheers bear
