I recently have taken out my inner fender well and cowl. I'm now an expert on taken out spot welds. But I need to fab a few pieces of sheet metal to patch upsome some spots. When trying to cut some small peices cut off wheel is to slow, jig saw shakes the metal so much make it difficult to cut. What the best way you have found for cuttingand shaping small pieces. thanks

not to hijack your thread,but I have to take out my inner fender apron by the battery in my 66....looks like a couple bolts across the top and down the apron...but how do i get the spot welds undone across the bottom? Thanks scott
+1 on the plasma cutter. the best way to remove spotwelds is a spotweld cutter AKA RotaCut bits 5/16 i beleave, best tool for under $30i have purchased yet. for cutting small pieces for pannel repair use a good Quality cutoff wheel with your angel grinder http://www.hougen.com/cutters/sheetmetal/Rotacut.html
I used cut-off wheels. They were fairly quick.... maybe you need to try another brand of wheel? Check the speed rating for the wheel.... IMO, those rated over 20,000 rpm hold up better. I went through BOXES of wheels...
i use an esab pcm1125 for all my cutting it's wonderful. for other things i use small cut off wheels though, also have some kind of mini reciprocating saw which is air powered and air powered sheet metal scissors.
