Default Need help assessing rust.

Hey guys,
I'm newb at metal work and I've found some rust on my 02 bugeye after taking up the carpet.
At what point does the metal have to be replaced (cut out and new metal welded in)?

This is right behind the front passenger seat. I've wire brushed a good amount away and you can see it's quite pitted but it still seems solid. I've seen youtube videos of people replacing panels looking less damaged than this though.

Is this amount okay to just spray down some rustoleum rust reformer and paint over it? (or should I use POR instead?)

There's rust on driver side as well.

Just need a benchmark / gauge of when I should be considering replacing metal.
