Restoring a project car can take you from the inside-out, and the ground-up. If you’re ready to work on the body of your vehicle and it needs “a few touch-ups,” you may need to do more than pull a few dents or buff out blemishes.
For body work that requires repairing and shaping body panels or replacing and patching floor plans, our metal shop pros recommend working with A366/1008 mild steel sheet. This steel sheet is easily welded and small pieces are great for patch panels.
