I've got some rust popping through the lower rear corner of a door on my '55. Should I expect to patch, or replace with a new door skin?

If its just a small piece or section you can clean it out and patch it. Trouble is, behind the metal on the doors is usually a buildup of scale and rust you can't get at real easily without skinning or half skinning the door.

I have bulging metal along the bottom and going up toward the door handle, so I think I will need to skin the whole door. I have never done it but several folks here have, and say it is not too difficult, if you go slow and follow some of the good advice here.

Good luck.
