Poor Man's Body Repair Part 1
Check out David's D.I.Y. Auto Repair Blog: http://www.diyautorepair.info
I have to do major body work on our 1990 Ford Econoline, I can't afford to have it done at a body shop.
Plus it would cost more than the van is worth, so being a jack-ass of all trades and a master of none, I have to do the job myself.
I have been doing body work for years on all the old cars I have owned in the past.
I use galv. sheet metal and pop rivets and rusty metal primer and Bondo.
This video is MY WAY, the poor man's way of fixing the body rot, it has to be done, the van runs good but the body is going to hell.
Soooo...If any of you that ARE in the body shop business and want to be a critic, please don't, I do not have a garage or the equipment or the MONEY to do it the RIGHT way.
To do it the right way would tie up the van for weeks, we drive the van almost every day.
This video is for you do-it-yourselfer's out there.
1971 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442, ends up Wrecked!
Okay here is a vid of a beautiful Old's Cutlass that would come to my work for repairs. overtime I took vids of it when we did some work for the owner. and then after all his time and money he put into it. it had a very sad ending! I used Marilyn Manson's sweet dreams for a background song. I know in the end its not a sweet dream but rather a nightmare. but I like the song cause it was a sweet car, and that a dream car to me with a tragic end! I'm glad for the family and owner of the car that I heard everyone was okay, other then what had happened. that matters most! though the car may be wrecked, with pictures and videos you can always reflect back to how it was so sweet, but sadly you have to move on, buy another like it, and alot of hard work to bring it back or make the other as nice by using what parts are good still. I wish them the best. I and my coworkers and others will always remember the beautiful car he had and wish them the best on moving on towards a new project just like it.
