Classic body damage help!!

Has anyone ever taken apart a recent classic for panel replacement. I have a lower rear corner panel to replace. I drilled out the rivets and removed most of the panel to inspect the interior.

I would like to know how the tailight housing is held on to the panel. I have not removed that section off yet. I cant see anything except for lots of caulking. I assume the inboard section is fastened somehow to the vertical post where the center panel meet.

Also is the interior upholstry of a classic bonded or fastenened somehow to an interior aluminm skin similar to the insternational ? Thats what it looks like once I had a section of outer skin removed.

We can help if you send some pics. Check for spelling on future posts, by the way.

I did not take any pictures of this today, the trailer is inside my repair shop. I own a semi trailer repair shop. Tooling is not a problem.
