    Anyone know where in the Houston area I can get the lower area rust-dents repaired (I have the patch panels)? Or am I just wasting time searching?

    Two shops declined after seeing the patch panel (or never wanted to do it in the first place). Another $100 per hour + materials with no time estimate. (No way)
    Another 10 hours at $125 per hour. (No way)

    I had to replace mine like every 2 gen Camaro.
    It's double walled in that area an dirt/dust collects there an when it gets wet it stays wet, more like mud that doesn't dry. Mine rusted out only towards the outside not on the bottom so I was able to cut it out very carefully without removing any of the inner wall. I did have some rust pitting on the inner wall but I treated it & painted it before welding on the patch panel. It took a long time to weld the patch on because of heat warping, it has to cool down before continuing.
