I just bought an 87 bronco with 351w on a c6 auto. Im going to get it running well and clean up the body. Just curious but how hard is it to replace the back panels around the back tires. I should have the necessary tools to do it. Just a little insight is what im looking for.

Cool!

Luckily, my Bronco only had tailgate rust, and had been sprayed long ago to stop rust from the underneath...

However, most guys here, with Fender Rust just cut it out and weld in new metal or some, with no Fab skills, will cut the rust, treat the bare metal so it won't rust anymore and run it with or without Fenderflares.

On the plus side of being cut out, you can run bigger tires. :D
