My fender lips have got some spotty rust on them. underbody and suspension components is pretty decent though, considering the salts they throw on the roads here in Nebraska are pretty brutal. The worst rust problem i have is my front subframe. It's flaking pretty badly

Zero rust issues aside from my BPM downpipe that had a defective coating. Daily driven in PA, purchased in Oct. 2001

The quarters got fixed after they were cut out and the car repainted. That job cost over $7000.

I was wondering how one gets this done. I've seen lots of bugs with rust in the pinch welds on the rear wheel arch. How did they fix it?

They can either cut out just the effected sheet metal and weld in a patch.

Or they can order brand new quarters, cut yours out and weld yours in. (Something like this)

exactly, our cars will never be done, there will always be something you "want" or "need" somewhere along the line.

I can't find the OEM front under spoiler in Aspen White anywhere.

I found it in WRB. Any idea how much it would run to strip and respray it? I'm already going to have my STi hoodscoop resprayed so the painted will already have his mix ready for that.
