Here is before and after my bro in MN. bailed me out !!
Saw this come across in new postings, thanks for the positive comments on the repair...not all me, I have some great guys helping at my shop. We have a plasma table so I made a jig so that the pressure would be consistant during the push/pull back. Obviously the metal in the crease area was stretched quite a bit but after making a small cut to the area, pull the cut area together and tig weld it and the area was good again. We still use lead on the classics so after a bunch of hammer and dolly work we applied a small area of lead to make it look great, followed by minimum skim coat of body filler (for filling scratches and file marks). Duane wanted the blue gone so after stripping all the blue area down to bare metal we applied epoxy primer followed by a couple coats of 2K and blocked it out to make it straight. I have to admit, I am jealous of all of you finding these tri-fives in the southwest compared to what we find here in the snow/rustbeltWow. That was some repair job. Very nice. Great work. I would think whatever caused that damage, pushed a portion of the window frame/roof over. I wonder how he got that area positioned to where it was suppose to be again?? Bet a lot of work and fitting went into that, Carmine.
