I've had a poke around the tacked on bits on the arch and it seems pretty solid there.
It looks like the rot spread too far up the arch for the suspension mount repair panel to cover so they welded a plate on.
Still gonna cut the patches off and have a proper go at making it look a bit nicer.

It looks a bit like a patchwork quilt under the arch but i think a bit of grinding and some stonechip should have that looking OK.
