    It's a nice and straight panel, but, is no where near just welding it on. Greg Overton in Johnston has a body shop that he uses. If it were me and wanted it done perfect that would be who I would use. Thou your pocket book will definitely notice.
    I bought 110 welder with gas shield and did it my self.
    I think @NellieFJ40 here used the same body shop as he does. Maybe he can chime in.

    Yup that's correct. By now the shop definately knows it way around 40s! Hit me up if you want the name and i'd be happy to provide you with their contact info.

    Sure, what's the shop name and address. It won't hurt to have an estimate. I'm not looking to have a show fj, I just want to get it cleaned up.
