I have a 66 Beetle. The engine runs very well so it is time to start fixing the body and get it painted.
Here is a video showing the outside and inside:

Watch "66_beetle_rebuild_start" on Streamable.
I think most of the rusty areas are surface and can be sanded to good metal. I also think most minor dents can be tapped out flush. Also the floor pans are in good shape.
From what I can see, the worst area is the rear passenger. Do I need to order a new panel, cut out the old, weld in the new, sand/smooth down the weld, etc? I am not opposed to just ordering new panels and rails from CIP1 if need be. Bondo/fiberglass?
Any advice appreciated, I am not a body repair guy haha
