You should weld them closed; otherwise it could fall thru or not match up well.

I forget what i used to remove the stick stuff but it was like metho or turps waters down or something; just dont go stupid or you could wreck your paint; also try on small part to make sure 1st.
Mine came up looking like new where i removed it, but didnt wish to spend so much money on wleding holes n painting it all up.

This is what i was told, didnt work for me and then afterwards was told it depends on what stuff they used, doesnt work best with some - just my luck lol!

Try the oil 1st, worth a shot.

eucalyptus oil, Prepsol, Turps, metho, lemon essence, even thinners if you don't rub too hard. If you've got to repair the holes the paint conditions not going to matter. If you aren't going to weld them, fibreglass them. Don't just use bog it will fall in/out and you'll be back where you started.

haha yeh i wish i could do that but ive only ever seen 2 other biscayne blue falcons on the road so im thinking my chances are a tad slim.

i was reading the paper and saw an ad for those mobile dent repair men. do you guys reckon they would be able to weld holes shut?

You would be better off taking your car to a small sheetmetal shop and getting it welded then to a panel beater for the cleanup and paintwork. Welding shouldn't cost you more than $50 as it is a 10 minute job. Trust me I know,I am a sheetmetal worker. :D
