    Welding thin metal is something that takes practice. You need a good mig welder and I find it easier to use a joggler and drop an oversized patch in rather than butt weld. Hopefully, it won't be too bad when you strip the sound deadening off.

      Heat up the sound deadening with a heat gun and use a plastic scraper to remove it - that way you won’t damage the e-coat underneath. Use panel wipe or thinners to remove the adhesive residue

        I’ve heard of dry ice being used to remove sound deadening , might be worth a try

          I’ve read a little on the subject and it seems those are the most common methods for removing the sound deadening panels. Will try them and see what works best for me.

            Finished up the POR15 process last weekend. Next up is sound/heat material.

              Well done, doesn't look like a fun job removing all of that!

                Thanks. Definitely not. I never tried the dry ice trick, because the heat gun and scraper worked pretty well for me. I figure the floor pan issue set me back a couple months (I work slow and don’t get as much shop time as I’d like).
