Rotted out rear trim panel.
Can anyone recommend a place to do this job? I need a spot weld cut and another good shape panel welded in. I don't care about paint (I'll do it myself, hell I can even provide the part). I don't want anything besides the cut and weld.

RMP wouldn't do it and reccomended me to another body shop which has closed for today. I don't like to go far if I can help it so somewhere in Toronto or Waterloo/Kitchener/Cambridge would be ideal.

Look for a new panel.they arent too much, and it will be peice of mind. When you reinstall the seal, put the joint else where like on top as moisture likes to drain into it when it sits at the bottom and well, rot

Also new seal, don t reuse the old

That's a new seal. Got rid of the old one. The rotting was there long before the new seal.

Good idea. Do you know anywhere which will actaully do this panel for me?

He doesn't actually have a shop he says he'd reccomend. Anyone else?

Autobody Shop
Go to the Bodyshop Rocco recommended.....super reasonable and very nice guy....also looking for business so he's very accomodating. I believe his name is Jag.

I plan on visiting. But after jacking up my car today, I found out that the front driver side jack point is starting to fail which is making me highly unconfident.

I need a person who can weld stuff quick and dirty. I'll take care of grinding, the body work and I'll tear everything down so that the welder/workers won't have to do much. But I don't have any tools to do any of that stuff...

In short - I need a new trim panel and a rocker panel/jack point cut and welded onto my car for as cheap as possible. Who can do this?
