Re: body panel replacement
I recently repaired the rust on both sides of my quarters using patch panels from RayBuck. I used an air-cutoff tool (not an air chisel) and cut out a square section a little smaller than the patch panel itself. I then used an air crimper on the sheet metal of the truck and then cut the patch panel to fit within a 1/8-1/4. I then used a MIG to weld continuously around the entire panel rather than spot welding (stronger). I then welded in new wheel houses purchased from Jeff's Graveyard.
Any questions, you can e-mail me direct.
