Ask Brian what the typical 1/4 replacement time is for some full size car,he'd know better than me...
If your looking to shave off a bunch of time you can weld every 1/4" or so and use filler as long as that seam is hidden behind the moulding but the last foot or so would have to be welded all the way where the spear stops....I just saw a 55 today that was a nice daily driver and for sale but it was a 4dr...
I'd much rather work on the old stuff ,its a lot more fun...
thanks for the help, your advice is always appreciated.
