    Im getting ready to sell my 1997 Ford F 350, but before i can i have to repair a small section of rust on the rear fender, (common on fords), but i was looking in to cutting the old section out and repairing it with a patch, either metel or fiberglass, does anyone have a good website to get patches, or that has auto body supplies?

    Ya that's the best way, the way your doing it. Just make sure and make your cut as straight as possible so that your new panel will butt right up to it. With the thin metal if the metal isn't close enough and theres holes and small gaps it will be much harder to weld together and sand down to make it look nice. Just make sure to take your time and sand that baby down for a long while to make sure it's perfect. If I't's not, after paint you'd definetly notice it.
