View Full Version : Who Does Body Work ?

10-28-2008, 06:04 PM
I need some sheet metal work done on the rear window hatch of Willy. Cut out the rusty spots and make new pieces. I can take it in and drop it off no problem but its going to take more skill than I have to fix it.

Anyone know of a descent shop in the lower mainland that can do that ?

Thanks [cheers]

The people I know build hot rods, in the 28 to 35 vintage. They are very good at making body panels. On occasion they do work on the new stuff,,,,,,,,40's and 50's.

Sorry walt thats a little bit to much for me good luck with it though[cheers]

Thats allot of work to patch all that up. I can do it but I dont have the spare time. I do a ton of patch repairs to sheet matal parts. I have a power hammer, english wheel and tons of bucking pars at my shop. Its actually not that hard all your doing in stretching metal sheet metal is easy too. that corner you will need to cut releaf slots in.

it's just the bottom 3" that needs replacing, it doesn't need to be perfect just needs to fit and look ok (not a show truck). its the inner corner that are gonna take some skill

so any one know of a shop or want to take on a side job (not in a big hurry for it)

west coast repair and collision on 240th in maple ridge does good work and a good guy. about a month or more wait.

theres a better and easier way to do this but it would cost you 400$ for me to do it for you i just did my 4runner and other rebuilts just call me ill explain it to you ,it will never show rust again.
