Is it sacrilegious to replace panels that have no rust?

Because I want a new quarter and taillight panel. Just seems like a ton of wasted work that may or may not fail later on. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate what I now know about working with filler. But Jesus, I have a solid drivetrain, great brakes, suspension, and interior. Why am I skimping on the body? I'm still under 10k on this project, a few body panels will put me close though.

That went smoother than expected.

One or two runs and, you can see in the roof where I want overlapping enough.

I've got a confession. I've been home for two weeks and all I've done to the 510 is take the cheese grater to the driver side quarter and taillight panel. I really like having a layer of paint over the filler, helps a ton in finding the lows and highs. Protip- don't wait as long as I did to shape your filler. It's much harder than in about 20-30 minutes after laying it on.

I have a friend that goops it on and lets it dry that way. Needless to day his body work never comes out nicely.

Thought I'd throw an update out there. Partner left me while I'm 500 miles away. Maybe an over-share, but it's fine. Anyway, I've been seriously considering selling off all my things, anchors with different shapes and sizes. That would include the 510. It's sad because I've never poured so much love and hard work into anything, and to watch it go away is gonna hurt. But, life will go on... Really it all boils down to my inability to rent on my own, I've spent years homeless looking for a place to live. Money plays no role at all.

I always said this wouldnt be another unfinished build thread, yet here it is, right on the verge.

I'll probably be embarrassed I wrote all this later, lmao...

Finish it and there won't be any regrets.

That's the problem, I don't have anywhere to finish it...
