Re: Working Man's Burbon

Now some tangible progress! But wait there's more! The rear wheel is at the wheel shop and they feel confident they can repair it. Fingers crossed!

More photos and information to follow.

Re: Working Man's Burbon

What did you use for a replacement panel?

Re: Working Man's Burbon

I didn't get a chance to talk with the body tech but, the estimator said they cut some pieces from the long bed side panel to replace the worst spots and the rest they hammer and dollied out. She decided against replacing the whole panel with the bed side panel (As originally planned) as there were too many differences. I will post the differences after I get to talk with the tech.
There will be more photos for me to post once they get time to send them to me.

There are some other things I am having fixed while there. A couple of rust bubbles on the other quarterpanel and a crack in the paint on the front edge of the hood. The biggest item is where the windshield tech gouged the paint just under the lip of the seal and it bloomed in to a nice rust flower. (It only took 4 tries for them to get the windshield to quit leaking.) I hope it goes better this time as the windshield will have to come out to fix it.
