I agree with that. The price of the patch panel is nothing compaired to the amount of labor you have to put in to a flat piece of steel to make nice looking contours. Much quicker and cleaner.Schonyenko2 said:You might want to think about replacing the section of floor pan with a new pan. I've found that way to be easier, and more sanitary than a flatmetal repair job. Floor pans, aren't that expensive.
