There’s a hole…

This F250 had a slight bubble under the fender  lip. It didnt look all that bad until we ground it down.  When we did that, a pretty big hole opened up. No big deal really, we just had to change our plan of attack on fixing it. Once we found the extent of the damage we cut out the old rusty metal and Chase, ( Iron Man ) fabricated a new piece to go in its place. Once he was happy with the fit, he welded it in. Once it was fully welded in, he ground down all the welds with a grinder and put a coat of Kitty Hair over the welds. Kitty Hair is a fiberglass reinforced filler that is waterproof. Once that was dry, we blocked that out and then used body filler to finish up the repair. We did get this in primer today as well, but neglected to get a picture of it. Tomorrow we will block out the primer and prep the rest of the panel for paint. We should get this painted tomorrow as well.

  1. Just a sneaky little glance of the Ironman you have hidden somewhere there in your shop.

  2. Yeah, he hides from the camera most of the time.
