Love these videos .... always learn something. For next videos can you try and show more of finished product from all sides. I had a bit of a hard time following what the inner panels were going to end up looking like , how outer surface tied in. Also you mentioned adding roll bar/cage, perhaps you could show the inside (structure behind the rocker) and point out any enhancements you made for strength as part of introduction to that video. Keep up the nice work.

I love these videos, I always wonder if there ever was a video made of after the sheet metal. The prep for paint, body fillers or what have you? & Totally finished product. I would love to see this if anyone knows of it. Thanks.

What do you use to smooth the welds to the base metal to ensure you aren't thinning the material? (After initial grinding of welds)

I gota ask, I've had problems with body carts in the past. I bought the one from jegs(felt like it was going to break when I was trying to move) and returned it 2 days later. I just came across this video and like the simple design, and how it can be lifted up. Before I build one, how stable is it on the stands? Enough to hammer and dolly?I really don't have any friends to talk about this stuff. Their just repair people and don't actually like them or care enough to do work like this. Been working on cars for 20 plus years and times taking a toll. I can't crawl or weld on the ground anymore 🤣

I guess new cars are hard to do patch panels on because nothing is straight on the whole body. Everything is rounded off.

It's more problems with the metal they use today. Not easy to weld. They come out with bronze welding now cause it burns at a lower heat then say a mig

what do you think of considering reversing the direction of that overlap? on the outside rocker, that way it won't be an area that will be susceptible to rust, like it has been.

Thr overlap continues on up inside the door.

I know you mentioned it before but where do you source your metal panels? I think you said old roof skins. But what vintage gets you the thicker metals. Everything no a days is so thin.

I’m so thankful that I found your Website. I’m new to car fabrication and can honestly say that your an amazing Craftsman that does wonders with the most basic tools and the results are so impressive. I’m learning so much and very soon will start to repair the rusted out dog legs and rocker panels on my Datsun 240z. Everyone that I know that works on fabrication is told to go to your website and see the Master teacher and they love the videos and can’t wait to see another one. Love your accent and that adds to the success of your Website. Ray in California.

By the way in England we call them sills. The rocker panel sit on top of the engine covering the rockers that go up and down with the valves.
Fitzee's Fabrications
Fitzee's Fabrications Uukausi sitten
Lol. Over here they call those valve covers. We call them top pans. Lol. Cause they are on the top of the engine. Lol. My old bodywork book from school had all the different terms for each part of the car from our side and across the pond.
Luke37 Uukausi sitten
I watch them all Fitzee. Your number one in my book. I remember one of the first videos I watched of yours when you cut and welded a patch panel and dropped the rusty piece right out and then your butt welded it. LOL how Sweet it is 🏁👍😎

My 620 has an old pop-up sunroof that the seal is rotted and I can't source a replacement. IF I were to fit up a patch panel for the hole & lap weld it in, am I just begging for the roof to warp? I don't have your skill so I'm already at a disadvantage.
Fitzee's Fabrications
Fitzee's Fabrications Uukausi sitten
Can't find a roof skin that is close to it. If you weld it out close to thr edges you will be fine. You will need a crown panel from another car or truck to do it right

I just found your channel a week ago. Wish I would have found you sooner. I bought aftermarket quarter panels for my car and regret it. The fit is terrible. No matter how much I try to move these around. The gaps go from to wide to nonexistent. After watching your videos I believe I could have fixed what I had. Now that I have watched your videos I will be able to fix these new panels. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and techniques!
