I have a dent in my drivers door at the handle and on the quarter just behind the drivers door. I was thinking of cutting some patches from the old 66 since both of these areas are straight on it. How hard would this be to do and get it right?
Check out the damage here and here.
I'd really like to use some original Ford metal and not replace the door skin or quarter.

No chance on just bumping it out with a body hammer and apply a THIN layer of filler? There's nothing wrong with Bondo (tm) in moderation - although the 2" thick layer of bondo in POC's lower rear quarter panel was beyond excessive...

Maybe on the quarter but the one on the door won't stay popped out. I just thought since those areas on my parts car were straight that I might be able to make patches out of them.

Have you checked out Dent Wizard or one of the other paintless dent removal outfits?

I'd hammer and dolly them out, the reason the dent in the door won't stay out is that the metal is probably streched. It's a little tricky but a shrinking hammer and dolly, should take it out (takes a lot of practice), then finish it up with a light skim coat of bondo and your set. Good Luck.
