Hi I just started my project of re welding the metal behind the door hinges but when I got the quarter panel off there is more rust then I suspected. Any suggestions how to deal with this?

thanks

Hi Everybody, finished welding the panels in and the door is back on. The fit is not very good, but itis an old truck and it willshut so O.K.

When Igot it back together, the oil pressure, water temp gagues and the 4x4 switches quit working. Idid remove a switch to the electronic fan when I was working on it. there was a spark, but I did check the fan relay and all fuses in power dist' box and fuse box. I just can't figure out what went wrong. I did partially pull the dash off to make some welds, but I think I plugged everything backin. Any ideas?
thanks
Jeff
Here is apic of finished welds.
