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.

Repairing and retexturing a Ford Explorer bumper cover
This video demonstrates, from start to finish, how to repair a textured plastic bumper cover using a hot air plastic welder. After the plastic welding is complete, the dents and low spots in the bumper are filled with epoxy filler which is then sanded down to match the original contour. The bumper cover is then retextured with MicroTex texture material from Urethane Supply Company. Finally, the bumper cover is painted with Bumper and Cladding Coat so that it matches the original color.
