Need advice: Rocker panel rust on e34 BMW. Worth saving?

I recently inherited my brother-in-laws 95 e34 5 series. Was planning on spending some time restoring it over the winter, but the rust that I came across after removing the side-skirts is concerning. It is on both sides, from the front jacking points all the way to the wheel wells. It has rotted through the sheet metal in places on both sides, and I assume would need to be cut out / replaced with new bodywork. How involved is something like this? Multiple thousands of dollars worth of work? I am not as savvy when it comes to this, and I am trying to figure out if it is worth the time / effort to deal with. Thanks in advance.
