From the looks of it I think you're on the right track. Replacing it will result in a better quality finished project. Fixing rust can end up like chasing your own tail. Certainly that's one of the sources I would look at.
You'll never regret doing it right the first time.

What does the front end look like at the rear torque box? The new complete rear frame rails are nice pieces. I needed both on my convertible. Back when I worked on my coupe I just patched the rear section in.

The torque boxes look good. the only other rust on the frame is a half dollar size cancer bubble on the passanger side that i will just patch.

Section it. I did both rear sections of my rear framerails. It's a common spot to rust on Mustangs. It's a fairly easy repair to make as far as sheetmetal work.

You could section it, but you may have a hard time grinding the welds on the inside the channel of the rail. Unless you use some kind of burr bit on your die grinder or something like it.
