Default New to metal shaping

Hey Everyone,

I'm Mike from Highland, IL (about 30 miles east of St. Louis, MO). I'm here because I bought a 1969 AMC Javelin last year, and there aren't a lot of replacement panels for those cars. There are tons of things I need to learn how to do, including:
- Make patch panels to replace rusted metal
- Improve dent removal techniques (there are LOTS of dents!)
- Fabricate inner wheel wells
- Install replacement floor pans and quarter panels
- Fabricate trans tunnel (for larger transmission)
- Remove drip rails
- Flush mount windows

I also need to purchase several tools (on a budget), so I'm looking for advice there as well!

Thanks,
Mike
