Using Repair Panels

Hi-
I need to replace some rusted metal on both doors of my truck. The inner bottom and the outer door skin need to be replaced. I bought a repair panel for the inner bottom, and a skin for the lower half of the outer.
I've been reading some of the great tips and suggestions, especially on templates and welding. Before I jump off the cliff, I want to ask for some advice on how to cut, fit and weld these pieces in and still have something that fits and won't rust out (again!) in a few years.
Thanks!

if there full peices and not patch panals or skins, drill out the factory spot welds and pull the peice off.
