body panel replacement

I just bought two new rear wings for my NAS D-90 from Safari Rovers off of ebay. My drivers side has a large dent from a rear ender before I owned it and the passenger side some corrosion beginning so I thought I would just buy new. The price was right regardless.

My question is has any one ever removed a rear wing before? Do these need to be spot welded in place?

Some people are so heavenly minded that they are NO EARTHLY GOOD!

You can replace them by drilling out the spot welds, but you will not find a spot welder able to spot weld the aluminum. You can use countersunk rivets and put a little bondo or lead over the rivets and make it look like its spot welded or you can TIG weld it to look like a spot weld. Now that's the spot welds, the rest is riveted in place - a pneumatic rivet gun is essential
