BangShift.com Crew Cab Biscayne Project: Zero Dollar Rust Repair! – Body Panels Made From SCRAP METAL
In this installment of the Crew Cab Biscayne build, the one that just might get a 2-door conversion done to it, the DD Speed Shop gang is going to show us how to do some rust repair with scrap sheet metal and that means a great budget-friendly fix. Check it out.
I’ll never forget when I found out that a Tri-5 Chevrolet was pretty straight forward to swap from a 4-door into a 2-door, and it blew me away. I had just never looked at one that way before. Later on I would fall in love with a car that a dude built and hauled to Famoso for the March Meet and California Hot Rod Reunion every year. It was a 4-door Tri-5 that had been converted to a 2-door on the driver’s side, but left the front and back doors on the passenger side. It was cool and made me smile.
In this video from DD Speed Shop you are going to help make the decision as to whether or not this car should survive as a 4-door cruiser or become something a bit more special with a two-door conversion. I’ll tell you, I am a big fan of wagons and 4-doors for some reason, so it wouldn’t bother me to leave this one alone. But it’s not up to me, it’s up to you!
Watch and let us know what you think should be done to it.
Every old car needs some sort of rust repair. Metal work is one of the most expensive and time consuming parts of any build. Being able to cut and grind will save you a fortune! Going 1 step further and fabricating your own patch panels is the ultimate way to save money and be self sufficient. In todays climate, the cost and availability of these replacement parts have become expensive and scarce. Grab your grinder, hammer and some scrap steel then start making your own replacement panels!
