    I don’t like the idea of cutting up your exterior.

    Could you work a flexible hose through the side gap next to the stock filler? Small mount plate tacked in for support at the upper end.F61DAD03-CB26-4ECE-A25C-E400515276D5

    Knocked up a patch panel for the pass side outer rear rocker.BD98E9AD-BC7C-48C5-B97C-7C91A6A221A6AD4576E6-17C3-4A23-A50C-21997174B5F6

    Abracadabra!39794F48-F72A-458F-9380-C4DD861147EE

    Patch panel and miscellaneous pinhole welding done on passenger rear pan area.

    Coat of seam sealer top and bottom to cover any misc pinholes or areas that I knew better than try and weld.92C536FC-33DA-4054-AC4D-A066D99CEE9CD00D21E1-6B92-464D-B78D-F85567F0A3803BA7B31B-6C5A-40B0-9CFE-C9E9646D6FC7C2842E22-A775-4088-A9FA-83B94DE96C1C

    I feel like there’s only one more area that needs attention, that’s the rear driver fender well/seat back/body tub area.

    I could easily put my finger through the worst spots.F9BCE8C3-53E9-4E82-8851-2349F76AEE2FA7CD6CEA-8EF7-43A7-8CF7-711C3741C164A447FAFD-F417-4AAE-A5D1-DBEFF4636F86

    That’s a great idea Pete! I’ll measure the screw holes today and make sure they will line up

    That’s what we’ve done in the past.

    Make sure you get any new plastic sliders, clips, etc. that you can. Those usually crumble when pulled apart. Take one window apart first so u know what you need.
