I'm finally getting the urge to start working on my project again (39 plymouth sedan). My question is what is the easiest way to fill holes where the chrome has been removed. I have done some body repairs but I want to make sure that the repairs are not noticable. Thanks John

I have found using a mig welder will do the trick. Just use some copper behind it and fill the hole. The copper should not stick. Once you fill it just grind it down, sand and use a little body filler to smooth it out. Also don’t run more than 14 or so on the mig, less chance of burning up the existing metal. IMHO this is the best way, all metal.

Hope this helps

Cory :D

john, barz51 nailed it- that works great- if the holes are larger just nip out a disc in the same gauge metal and weld it in flush. Don't get it too hot , of course, even when grinding it smooth. Good Luck! (keep it all metal!) :)
