Well done, are you planning on replacing the the inner skin as well? Install the inner skin with quite a few extra rivets into the existing and added on structure and you will have created a very effective torque box and you should never again have problems with the front.

I will likely fill in the bottom of he existing so I don't have to worry about matching the vinyl covering at the top. I would like to buck rivet a patch on he bottom but I don't know if I can get the panel out without a lot if work as a result of all the wiring. I do have to redo a bunch of that anyway so it might work out. But yes, extra rivets sound like a good idea.
