By the way guys. Rich or poor when you can save money its important so heres my trick. Why pay for metal sheets when you can get them from old mufflers? Most of times a truck muffler is thick enough and is made of galvanized steel. I got mufflers that are scrap but not rusted outside...i cut the outshell with the grinder and use it and soemtimes theres enough small metal divisions inside to patch small holes.
I'm a poor man with a rich brain :p

I wish you luck. I suggest that you invest in some Eastwood Rust Encapsulator, and rust solution(used to be Oxysolv). The liquid solution can seep and weep into cracks to kill the rust. Nothing is perfect, but it worked very well for my 91 LF door bottom, and a hole where the quarter panel meets at the bottom(where you just repaired). The Encapsulator will seal surfaces from rust, but not kill it inside of seams.

Also, Ultra Black RTV is very good at sealing holes and cracks like you have remaining. Good luck,

Eastwood is one of the best companies to deal with, they have very good customer service. I had the Oxysolv(old name) already, so I can't say what it costs now. The Rust Encapsulator was just over $30 per quart. You can do a lot with those smaller container sizes. You should try them if you can wait a few days to get it. Regards,

I saw it, just that rivited in patches are not legal here or Nova Scotia, I just figured that Quebec would be the same. It may get picked up in an inspection, that's all...

Bonne chance
