Re: ranchero rear panel R & R.......
Good luck trying to seal the panel. I think the best bet is to just make sure everything under the panel is properly coated and letting the water run through it to drain out the bottom.
As for the filler, well the gas leaking from around the gas cap is a common problem with the 60-65 ranchero/station wagon. It was poorly designed by ford. Gas will spill out on hard right turns if the tank is more than half full.
As to using a door, you would likely have to fab the door yourself. The opening for the gas cap is oval, not round, so you'd either have to make a new door or cut your ranchero's opening to the same size as the door you're planning to use. Plus, a body line runs right down the middle of the opening so the door would need to be bent.
