I'm definitely curious how they work. Just bought a 99 out of Houston with some pretty rusted door bottoms. I wasn't going to bother with them but I'm curious how these work. Would you cut the lower portion of the door off and scab these on?

Running a body shop up here in Maine, we fix more rusty door bottoms than anything it seems. Yes, those patch panels are meant to replace the factory door bottoms after you have CUT the rusted sections out. Can be quite a job to weld in the new panels, but being able to buy the pre stamped pieces make life A LOT easier.

If your doing the work yourself it will be cheaper. But if you have a shop do it, then you may be better off with new doors.

By the time a shop farts around with fitting, welding, sealing, bondo you'll have more labor($) in the job. Compared to new/good used door you just clean scuff up and paint.
