Hi All, With the nice weather and the cruises winding down for the summer I'm thinking of my winter project, the rear section of the car. Today I started removing pieces to see what was ahead for me. I found some damage I didn't expect but I'm not surprised either. Someone had repaired the holes with fiberglas. I think I know what I'm going to repair the damage but I'd like your input to help me decide.
Here's some photo's.

I'm thinking of just replacing the damaged part of the panel, a lot less welds to remove but than there will be a bit of welding to get the new small piece in. The rest of the panel is in good shape with no holes and straight.
What do you think?

Bottom of the quarter, bottom of the trunk drop off, part of the trunk floor, and a bit of the rear panel. If you are a very good welder than just do the areas that need to be removed (the non-rusted original sheet metal is probably thicker than the new pieces).
