Re: Body fab or Finally got the bug

All the body panels are held together with spot welds. You don't need to remove the entire panel though, usually easier to just cut the damaged section and lay a new piece over the hole.

I had a shop replace the cargo pan on mine a long time ago.







Here you can see they just patched over one hole by cutting an overlapping section and tacking it into place.



For other holes since then I've just cut and patched the hole myself. Cut the rot out, cut a piece to fit, tack the piece in place and cover with automotive seam sealer
