Default replacing rusted body panels with replacements

My brother bought an F250 with some rusted rear fenders. We were thinking about cutting out the rusted section and welding a repair pannel. Anyone have much experience with this? Is there one prefferece pannel replacement company over another?

I did a 94 bronco with the "JC Whitney" style fender repairs a couple years ago. You have to be really careful when stitch welding not to warp them.

You can see some photo's in this build thread starting at post 45:

I've heard good things about the flange and glue method. Faster and no chance of warping either. No personal experience tho.
