patch panels

I'm retired taking a street rodding class at UVSC in orem utah they have all the tools to build anything, the instructor can do a part in 15 minutes that takes most of us a day to make and look right. I did patches and doors for an early dodge touring i made into a bucket and am working on another nevada desert free find similar in size to my 32 ford roadster. doing deck lid ,doors and patch panels.

Something to consider about patch panels.

The patch panels are made to fit an old part. Brand new parts were not used to make the pattern, as they were no longer available. There was a considerable variance between the parts when they were new, and you can imagine how they differ by now.

When you consider those 2 facts, it is easy to understand why the repair panels do not fit well, if at all.

It's a crap shoot with most manufacturers now days to get new parts to fit new vehicles.
