Well, if you go to a body shop to get a fleetside or a door skin 
installed in a modern body shop, the old door skin will be removed (spot 
welds drilled) and the new one is glued on.  It is better than weld.
The stuff comes in a dual tube caulking gun insert with a single mixer 
nozzle to apply the 2 part glue.  it's sticky.

The expanding foam deal is pretty common around here in the shady shops. 
  Not the best, but sure beats paper mache. (seen it with my own 2 eyes)
