View Full Version : REPAIR , REPLACE, WHEN & HOW
I have a problem with a project I am working on with my son. His project is borderline everything.The car is too solid to replace all the floors and trunk, but has pinholes scattered throughout.Any tips or tricks for repairing this type of damage would be greatly appreciated. WE have been using copper as a back up and migging each hole over, this works well on most areas,but where there are a concentration of pinholes this process still blows through. Sombody must have a secret or a trick that will put me and my son back on track.

The pinholes to me would indicate the metal in those areas is pretty thin. In the long run it would probably be better and even take less time to replace the effected areas with new metal. In the past I've spent more time repairing / welding up holes than if I would have just replaced the panel.
Good luck with the project.

when a floor is like thet I know only two ways
1 sandblast and fiberglass the whole floor
2 remove the whole floor and replace
THANKS for your response guys, not exactly what I hoped for need a magic wand or an easy button! I had forgot to mention this project isnt low budget, its no budget. After lots of consideration we came up with this solution, since there seems to be a shortage of magic wands and easy buttons are on backorder we figured we would try our luck with a bead roller and fabricate our own parts for the worst areas and back to the copper backing strip for the small areas. This seems to be the most economical solution not the fastest. Been having problems with pc sorry so slow about posting CUZZ
