Can I really prevent rust by....

If you take them off, and put some good wax on there inside and upper side of the fender lip, and leave them off, it will help prevent rust

I did pretty much the same thing as Ericem on my last OBW, (an 02) except that I filled the rubber groove with waterproof axle grease before putting it back onto the car.
Even better of a idea!

removing the weather strips above the tires? I have seen a lot of subarus with rust on rear quart panel wheel arc next to the rear bumper:eek:
I removed mine! Don't see any advantage to keep those strips of rubber......they don't seal well

I take them off. I'd prefer the area to be open to washing than being a closed groove holding saltwater against a seam.

I would wield it but my wielder is 90A far too strong for body metal.

Took a picture yesterday to show what I mean
Can you get a new panel?
A well done job would be to weld new sheet metal, but takes some skill
