Side panels are spot-welded onto the rest of the body, and a special tool is needed to cut them off. This tool from The Eastwood Company fits in a standard drill motor and cuts a 3/8-inch hole in the outer panel, which leaves a nub on the inner structure. This nub is ground off after the panel is removed. The hardest part is finding the small impressions the spot welding creates, but after the first few tries, it becomes easier to find and drill.
