Oh, it's loads of fun. I hope you don't have to try it sometime.

Thanks for the advice everybody!

Sheared studs: Drill 'em out.

Loose rivnut: You can buy rivnuts and a rivnut tool. Martin has more
detailed info. You can install a new rivnut or just epoxy it in place
as per your original plan.

Impact foam: Some sort of heatshrink or spray-on vinyl...maybe do-it-
yourself pick-up truck bed lining would work?

I've never removed any body panels...sorry mate.
