I don't think I can find a good used quarter here in south Dakota, way to much salt going on here! I double checked prices and the cheapest I could find are 230.00 per panel plus 120 to ship... So basically thats another 700 bucks and I don't think I want to go that route.
So I should go with a flange? Or butt weld? I've been doing some reading, a lot of people say a flange will rust because it will collect water, I don't see how if the existing metal id flanged and the panel fits into the flange... So the lip its facing down. Hopefully you understand what I mean. of course I'll use some weld thru primer, then a shot of epoxy and some undercoat after to seal it..
