The rear shocks have rusted through the back of the car. The part of the trunk is rusted out and we're trying to find out if anyone makes panels that can hold the rear strut.

Common problem. Ford is real good about making sure parts are no longer available once their cars are a few years old. You can ask about aftermarket repair sheet metal at any body shop, but most people head south to the salvage yards. They can cut the panels out in a few minutes with a torch. They'll give you more than you need. Just trim off the extra by drilling through the spot welds.
