Sheet Metal Fab How To: Simple Tools And Techniques Can Help You Recreate Some Pretty Complicated Body Panels

Replacing a piece of a rocker, lower fender, cab corner, or floor pan is pretty standard when you are talking about building old cars, but what about the other stuff that’s more complicated? For example, areas that are at the corners of the firewall where the A pillar, firewall, cowl, and door hinge areas come together. This is just one example of the places inside your car’s body that have a lot of steel and a lot of angles, all coming together to create some structural units that are pretty intimidating to recreate. That is until you watch Fitzee here because he has got some really simple ways of looking at these things that result in a great finished product that you can build with several simple steps instead of trying to do it all in one.

The video below shows you how simple materials, simple tools, a Sharpie and a few screws or Clecos can turn out a seriously clean finished product. Oh, and he screws up on one piece and shows the screw up and the fix! It’s a total learning moment and shows that these are not the things that require you to panic, but rather look at what it will really take to fix it instead of starting over. We approve.

Honestly, watching someone like Fitzee doing sheet metal work is a total confidence booster for someone who isn’t a sheet metal master. I feel like I could do a much more difficult project than I would have ever done before starting to watch his videos. You might feel the same way too. Check it out below.
