If you don't have access to a welder you can use rivets or sheet metal screws to attach some new metal. Cut out the rusty area and treat the area with rust proofer. You can cut a piece of steel from a junkyard vehicle or buy a small sheet of steel from Home Depot. It's pretty cheap. I've also seen someone use an old cookie sheet cut to fit. The battery will hide it anyway.
