To flange or not to flange, that is the question

    I am not a body man, but I am trying to do almost everything including bodywork and painting on by 64 Skylark project. Luckily I got a great car and I only have a little rust behind each rear wheelwell. I have ordered patch panels but before I start anything, I need someone with some experience with this sort of thing to give me some advice. I have seen some articles in magazines about putting a flange on the bottom of what you cut off of the fender and then putting your patch panel onto the flanged area. So I guess that it’s either butt joint or flange. Any thoughts out there?

    WOW! Thanks for the help. I will be printing this out and keeping it handy when I get started.
