Re: Body work question

Short cuts = disaster.

Re: Patch panels

A gap is a hole in the joint. Is that what you want? If not turn off the stitch and use the continuous mode and skip around with short welds leaving no gaps.

Re: 337 Lincoln powered hot rods.

In back I love the low down exhaust rumble of the stock 337 in my avatar after passing through 2 large oval mufflers. In front the motor is whisper quite like a Lincoln should be.

Re: How to remove stripping?

Try wet sanding with 2000 grit then polish the scratches out. Using a solvent may damage the enamel.
