    Really if you just have a couple soft/rusty spots patch panels are better. When you getinto replacing the whole section with aftermarket stamped pieces you get the can effect going on. When you get in or out the panel pops and cracks like you squeezing a coke can. Some people have luck with them though. All I dont was cut out the rusty spots layed in new 16gauge sheet and welded them in. I even raised the seats a bit (for me its more comfortable).

    I done that in my silver blazer. My brown blazer use to be a plow truck so I didn't have much to work with. I ended up cutting out all the floors and starting over.

    You could also post this question on the new "Body Shop" forum which is about restoring the trucks with original parts. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
