new video up with body tips/ panel alignment tips/ metal working ideas

Finally a new video. I was trying to make an entire video on panel allignment and the tips were very good but it was boring as all hell so I'll go back to the drawing board and redo it. In the meantime, I've been working on this stinking Nomad and thought I'd share a few tips and entertainment. Enjoy!

hurry your *** up with the panel alignment. I'd be really interested in that one...I think it's kind of fun. Like putting a big *** puzzle together.

Excellent video Henry! Tell me something, is it my eyes or is that a 65 Buick Gran Sport convertible sitting next to that Nomad? From what I can see of it, it sure as heck looks like one!

panel alignment by far is the funnest part...sometimes. On the Nomad we used an aftermarket support and it's made of bar instead of a square piece. Things didn't line up easily on that car but it was still fun doing it. That's one thing the boss totally doesn't understand in terms of what he's making off of panel allignment. I said, "then find a way to start charging for it, chalk it up as a loss, or get used to bad gaps."

Ahh it's a Special or a Skylark with it's mouldings removed from the doors. A Gran Sport is the only other one of them without door mouldings but it didn't come out until mid 65.


Cool, if you need any parts for it, let me know I have a few.

thanks guys!

Martin, it is a gran sport, or at least the emblem is on the glove box. I guess I got the year wrong.

It sounds like they don't make a whole lot of sheet metal for this car being that I had to work out a massive dent on the door and even had to weld up 12 holes from old bodywork on the same door... talk about hitting the repair/ replace threshhold.

We couldn't find any sheet metal online for it

There is VERY little reproduction parts and certainly not sheet metal. I don't believe there is one single piece of metal, patch panel, nothing.

The only rust mine had was the rear body panel and one quarter. How do you like this, I got a quarter and rear body from a super nice body at the wrecking yard around 1988 and saved it until I installed it about 10 years later.
