Depending on how bad your rust is,most need the lower door pillar area replaced also.

if not already mentioned, PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. It's not easy and we all wanted our trucks done NOW, but if you'll realize that time is on your side, you'll do a great job and be proud of the completed truck.

Re: New to bodywork, suggestions, and advice

I had planned on being deep into this by now, but my 1 year old hasn't been cooperating lately, nor has my wife's work schedule, she works retail, also no heat in the shop is no fun this time of year. Thank you all again and I will post updates when they happen

Well with the holidays and kids out of school, I haven't had a chance to do anything, even with the very mild winter we've had so far
