    I forgot, it is 18 ga. Sorry But I do have rocker panel that you can use to patch your 1951.

    Thanks, Gentlemen.

    I will pick up some 18 ga. sheet steel and start patching. Fortunately, I only have rust in a small section at the front of each rocker panel, a small section of the trunk at the right rear corner, and a small part of the cowl where the front fender bolts on. I already had a professional do the small patches in each of the fenders but I have decided to do the other patches myself since they are out of sight.

    I just bought a MIG welder to use in repairing a rusty patch in the trunk and the rocker panels. I need to match the new steel patches to the old. What gauge would I use?

    Thanks,
