Solid and heavy, prone to small rust patches just under the paint surface. If you really feel like it, you can rub it down and patch it up, there are places that will sell you tins of the special two pack paint you need. Wheel arches take a lot of battering, but can be patched up with more metal plates. Seems to be something that happens fairly routinely at my taxi garage. But remember, the taxi has a chassis underneath which means that the bodywork isn't a structural part of the car in the same way as modern cars. If you get some plates fitted over any holes in the wheelarches, then get it undersealed, you'll be good to go.
