Default any one replaced Lower Front Panel Repair Kit on a Blob

I have noticed some slight rusting on the corners of this front panel which holds the rad




I like to keep things tidy and may look to replace this part.
Can anyone share some experience whats involved and any pictures would help.

Many thanks

Any information on whats involved or any pictures of the removal ? if its cut out and the new complete panel welded in is it just the corners that need welded up ? IE the sides left and right ?

I looked into this a couple of year ago for the same reason. If i remember correctly the lower panel is spot welded in place, so drilling these welds out isn't a massive job, it's going to be more time consuming stripping the front end to get to it.
