Unfortunately I have to replace both 1/4 panels. I don't want to jump into welding and use that as one of my first practice runs, ya know? But I hear you loud and clear. The trunk area that needs work is rather small in size and that does not need to look pretty, same with the floor pans. Just another thing to think about. Part of me wants to just put her in the shop and let someone else do it all, but I know I could save some serious cash and use that for something else if I did the prep and painting myself. The good thing is that this represents the lowest point of this project - I can't tear her down any more. I can only start moving forward from here.
