Thread: project 4 from ogorir: inner quarter panel patch

  1. #1

    Default project 4 from ogorir: inner quarter panel patch

    This is a '61 bullnose that will be as close to perfect as I can make it when it's done. it's on long term hold because the boss is more interested in go-fast than look-good.


    this corner of the tail panel was hit and pushed and repaired, but this section of the inner quarter was pretty weak after being beaten back into place, so I replaced it.

    the patch blank. you can see a faint scribe line where the flange needs to be folded over on the inside corner. I used a piece of copier paper to make a template. I usually use posterboard, but I didn't have any.

    this is a chunk of leaf spring i found by the side of the road walking home from highschool that I ground and polished one end of. it works great for folding edges over with, especially in combination with a dolly like the second photo

    the inner quarter leans out, so I had to make the patch do the same:

    the soapstone mark is where I was thinking of cutting the patch off, I think it ended up leaving it a bit higher.

    you can see that the flange is bent over a bit too far at this point. it's always a challenge getting a flange like this to lay down right around a corner. the second one is the mostly fitted patch.

    I used black spray paint to give myself an outline while the panel was clamped up, then I chalked in where I was going to cut out.

    this is still visible, so I'll take finished shots tomorrow. I apparently got tired of taking pictures that day
