Rust repair definitely ranks in the top 10 things most hot rodders and racers dread or fear, and I have to admit that I was one of those folks for a very long time. Now I’m no body work guy, so don’t make the mistake of thinking I am some metal shaping master. But thanks to a lot of great advice, and the amazing amounts of sheet metal repair videos now available on YouTube, I’ve come to realize that with the right methods you can do some really nice sheet metal repairs that would turn out horrible if most of us were left to our own devices. One of the most important steps when replacing bad sheet metal is the actually cutting of the old sheet metal from its home. If you cut it out to large then you’ll have more work to do making the patch. If you cut it too small then fitting the patch still remains a major task. But what if you make the patch first? Well, that’s just one of the secrets you’ll learn in this video.
Fitzee does a great job explaining the intricacies of replacing and massaging sheet metal and in this video he will show you just how to do trunk edge repairs like a pro.
