    I agree with the above advice. Take out more than you think, because there is almost always more rust on the back of the bodywork that you can't see. If you take out too little then you'll be trying to weld a new piece onto a thin, half rusted body panel. And rust is a nightmare to try and weld to/near. And even if that works there's still a big rust patch lurking on the inside.

    Also take your time and do it properly. I've done a few things quick and dodgy and it comes back to bite you on the arse far sooner than you expect. In my experience it take ages to get a replacement sheet bent correctly and trimmed to fit perfectly, but once welded in you never need to think about it again.

    I must admit I always have to put a bit of bog over the top to get things nice and smooth again and here it's a balance between:
    a) putting so much on that you're sanding all day to get it back to the right level.
    b) putting on too little so there are still some spots that are below the level you want. If this is the case just bite the bullet and bog a little more.

    No matter how much time you spend with a body file, spoons etc you will nearly always need a skim of bog over it

    Does anyone know if replacement panels exist for the " usual" rusted out sections on the 86? Most of the collectable cars around the world have replaceable panel sections for the prone rusty areas of their makes. Usually the panels are made from ex panel presses from the manufacturer, makes life real easy. Rare spares for instance.

    Making a jig up to replicate the main rusty areas of the 86 wouldn't be difficult. Kick panel in front of A pillar, lower A pillar, sill, lower B pillar. The Alfa replacement panels have really bad fitment- normal for aftermarket parts. These are the parts we need to keep our Toyotas alive. Finding the original presses would be a bonus.

    Just stumbled upon this thread, Mirko your panel beater guy it appears he is laying a panel over the top of another panel ? does he cut out much of the rusted panel behind the panel he fits & what does he end up doing with the lip he makes from laying one panel on top of another i'm assuming just bog / blend it, idealy its best to butt weld it in, ie have the repair section exactly the same size as the cut out section & fit it flush & then weld it in takes more time but way better job / finish .. what does he use for welding mig or oxy & steel filler or braizing or tig .. Have you got any pics of a finished off panel ??
