Quality custom & restoration sheet metal work & repair
More hammer, dolly & shrink disc time its starting to look very usable
A minimal amount of filler was needed to make it real nice & a few good coats of epoxy primer.
1964 Fairlane Left Quarter Panel Repair & Door
Previous repair attempts
On restorations or mild restmods I like saving original sheet metal when ever possible as it adds to the value of the vehicle later, in stead of having a bunch of patch panels, whether after market or hand fabbed. Once finished I burn the owner a CD of what was done for there records which can help in the resale later as to show what was done. Good documentation always helps when selling.
New patch held in place & checked for fit.
After some hammer & dolly with a bunch of shrink disc work it is starting to clean up
The owner was quite happy I was able to save the original front quarter & door skin as there was no after market replacement panels available
A new panel was made up using the bead roller & English wheel it was made to look original with the recess on the bottom underside

The owner started to do the repair then realized it was over his head. This is a factory V8 four speed car
Old repair & rusted section previously covered with mud
Nothing fancy just a nice clean repair
This is why the owner called me help, I screwed up my car. He had attempted to use the torch to repair the quarter & door damage. Then figured he was in over his head. Trying to fix the old damage repair that some other mud artist did.
