If you plan on using your car at the drag strip or demo derby then I guess it does not matter, but I seriously dont want to hear anyone bitch about someone calling there car "Just a coupe" at a show anymore since you dont feel like your car is worthy of doing things the right way.
Doing things right is not a matter of opinion here guys. If you cant do it, fine..but dont try to justify shoddy work because you cant do it or wont do it.
Fstbk, first and foremost I respect your opinion and I'm showing no disrespect here as you have some great knowledge that I have used some of it in the years I've done my coupe and I thank you for that.
But to be brutally honest the bottom line in all this is it is just every ones opinion as to what is right and what is wrong on this subject of repairs and you are trying present your opinion, yes your opinion, as the one and only fact when it clearly is not.
Rust fixed with pop rivets and covered by Bondo and fiberglass, yes, hack job.
I totally agree with you on that kind of fix and I would extremely pissed if I found that in our car.
A properly done and concealed lap weld patch rust repair not so much.
That is my opinion.
