You need to find a nice used door, buy a new door or fabricate your own patch panels.

There are some "universal" lower inside door patch panels. They are kind of a generic part. Not really model specific. I can't remember the company it's been years since I bought anything from them. I did have a catalog around though. I see if I can find it.
You would have to trim and adapt them to fit. But it's hard to get a permanent fix on rusty door bottoms. It will come back sooner or later. But if you're just looking to buy some time until you find a nice used, then it might be a good solution.

Yeah my plan is to cut all the rusty metal of the door and weld patch panel and add rust preventors

Yeah but doors are tough because they tend to hold dirt and moisture even when the drain holes are clear. But if you can keep the car in a garage or under a carport and out of the rain it will last much longer.
Did you try pm'ing mattyman? I thought he had some doors?
