Default Re: sheetmetal videos's repair panels

I've used the rocker panel patch, lower fender patch, cowl patch and all needed to be reworked to match the original sheet metal: the rocker panel is straight and that part of the body is curved--very difficult to match the quarter panel; the same for the cowl patch being straight while the original body is curved; the lower fender panel had to be sectioned both on the outer part and where it meets the running board. Also, the body line of the cowl patch, quarter panel and lower door panel do not match the original, so unless you use all three on the same car, where the original and patch meet needs to be worked so they blend together. I appreciate that EMS is making these panels, but I don't think it would take a whole lot to go from "sorta fit" to "it fits with no reworking". Rod

All the sheet metal panels I've used need rework!

Thanks for posting the videos. It's helpful to see the actual parts. Catalog pictures often don't show the features you want to see.

We are lucky someone is helping us with these panels, It would be nice if they fit a little bit better, but we should all expect some fitting going on with anything! It is nice to order out of a catalog rather than spending months crawling around in junk yards like we did years ago!

I replaced the firewall, rocker panels on both side and a front floor pan. All fit nicely. My only problem was that there were no instructions that came with it.
