I have not crawled underneath yet but poking about ,it does look as if it will need welding
The transmission tunnels look ok but the panel underneath the battery has more holes than a box of polo mints ,The door bottoms are not bad but there are a few holes ,the sills look sound and the rest is all surface rust ,
Question is what is the best gauge of steel to use ?
the rest is wire brushing ,flap wheeling ,passivating and undercoating /top coat

Most of the original bodywork is 1mm. Driveshaft tunnel lower panels are 1.2mm and suspension towers are 2mm. I'd say what you're doing is probably 1mm but best to measure what is there if you can and match it.
