im gonna try because it is rotten behind here down ward so. next tool to purchase is a dremmel to get in & cut the panel behind out . The inner filler section is spot welded only 4 tho so as its rotten im gonna give it a go for sure.

 

hopfully i can get it off then all i need to do is get 1 or 2 spot welds to hold it.

 

harder part looks like putting the hole inner sheet back in place.

 

see wot happens lol.
