most shops leave the old skin on, all they do is grind the edges off and overlap the new peice to the old skin and spot weld. This saves time in labour. Miself I cut the old metal out and butweld the new and old together, grind smooth and I apply a thin coat of fiberglass before I put bodyfiller just incase I have pinholes in my weld moisture wont bleed through and cause bubbles in the finish later on. for a first timer doing it ourself, I would say it would take you a good part of the day, if you have welding skills a little less.
