    They rust down there from the inside out.

    Condensation forms on the inside of the panel, and they were not coated properly from the factory inside the arch on the side you cannot see.

    If you take all the paint off the side you can see, you will find it is rusting under the paint. It is rusting from the inside out!

    Make sure the drain gap at the bottom of the sill edge is clear too.
