depends on where you are sectioning the panel, etc. On my car everything is welded, but i have glues a lot of panels on at work. They both have their place, but I prefer welding.

Yea...usually the newer cars are welded around door openings and pillars and glued in the middle for support...but i would for sure weld as much as i could.

yup. I am lazy and i glue on roof skins, no warpage, no leaks, and can be done 1/4 of the time. on new cars I also like to glue the wheel opening when replacing a 1/4 panel. no plugs welds, no heat, no extra work, etc, plus you get a nice sealed seam. On resto's I always butt weld everything and if the customer is paying really good money, I finish both sides of the weld.
