Well maybe it's better they just riveted it on....they could've damaged more by trying to weld it in themselves from the looks of it

My 66 had a 12x16 window cut into the right side.You will know why when you are in traffic and have to change lanes to the right.

The back doors are not very mirror friendly.

As for yours I would cut that patch out and and weld in a new piece flush with the original side.

Its not easy, in fact that is most likely whey they went with the filler route while it still takes skills to make it flat and smooth, it is far less work to sand and add body filler than to shape flat panels.

I finished painting the 38 Dodge panel I mentioned a couple pages ago. Now he is building a '34 Chevy Master Deluxe panel that I will finish for him in a few months.

Sorry... I don't have any.

It was done in tan and light brown, with a "flame shaped piece of plywood or fiberboard, covered in the light brown, and attached to the inside of the "panel" areas.

The dash had similar graphics to the rear doors, since the dash had the wing-shapes stamped in it across the top.

And I forgot to mention that the owner made a burled maple dash, and a few other burled maple trim pieces for the interior!
