The car is a 71 Monte Carlo I've heard the newer cars are made from a different gauge of steel and was wandering what I should use for this project??

if you want to get it back to factory ...you can get replacement panels for any part of the car that needs replaced ...they are stamped just like factory...just trim things up to fit well and weld it in....so lets say you want to replace drivers floor pan....you order it and you get just the floor pan for drivers side ....trim up both the car and or the piece and put it in....little grinding and it looks factory.... j.c. whitney should have them

Finally got a working keyboard sorry about the wait......I've lookrd at the replacement panaels but other than the drivers side front floor pan(more holes than steel) everything else just needs small patches. I'm pretty sure I can get some decent size pieces of sheetmetal for free.
