    Can't you see the inner frame, he only cuts away the skin and then welds on a new one. Unibodys are sweet!

    I would tack the new panel on over the old one :)

    Imagine the ridigity. Take the front radiator mount and double up on it, all the aftermarket cross members and stuff... And you're in a tank.

    It's perfectly safe. That's how they're put together at the factory too. The unibody skin on a Civic doesn't play any really major structural role in the rigidity of the car- the space frame under it is what provides the shape and structure.

    And weight about as much as one too. :)

    Just seam weld the bastard!

    looks real good. how hard was it? does it look harder then it really is or is it as simple as drilling the seam welds and taking it all back together?
