Sounds like you have a vehicle that was re-painted.

A paint shop usually just fixes the visible items, so their "job" looks presentable.

Had a restoration shop done the work, it might have included a complete removal of all parts from the tub. (Body-in-white)

While you have the hinge plates off, you could cut out the bad metal & weld in patch panels. But then you'd need to match the color when re-painting. (Possible can of worms)

At least use some cold galvanizing paint on the rusted areas. try to clean as much rust off, then mask off the ares that you will paint.
