Decklid hinge area rust through cutout.
Test fitting newly fabricated panel. The rust remaining under the panel will be chemically treated.
The fabricated panel welded in place. The decklid underside will now be stripped, chemically treated and epoxy primed.
With the paint removed the exposed rust through can be clearly seen.
The decklid outer panel carefully removed while leaving the inner panel in place so a replacement repair panel can be fabricated.
Once the outer panel is fabricated and perfectly fitted, a new inner panel lip will need to be fabricated as well.
The outer fabricated panel being tack welded in place.
We prefer to seam weld our panels for strength and longevity.
With the welds ground to a smooth finished surface a water proof coating is applied followed by surface leveler, polyester resin and epoxy primer.
