Sorry to hear about your truck, just hope everyone was okay! Good question, though. I've never replaced body panels like that but you might try contacting some body shops in your area, they're usually pretty helpful and should be the best source of advice, good luck!
My son borrowed my 2003 Ram 1500 Sport last week and rammed another car while passing on a two lane road. They settled on the spot without getting police or insurance involved. Now I need to replace the right front fender...is this difficult? I will do that myself it it's not a big pain. I looked at the forum but didn't see a section on body repair. Thanks for any advice you may have for me!
