V8 Speed & Resto Shop Restorations
Patch Panel or Full Body Panel Replacement?
If you have rust or damage in your classic car, muscle car, hot rod, or truck, you have some options when it comes to sheet metal body repair panels. One option is to replace the entire panel, be it a quarter panel, fender, floor section, trunk floor, roof skin, dashboard, or other body panel.
The other option is to replace a section of the panel, cutting it in the middle and only welding in what is needed. Which is the better option, full panel replacement or patch panel installation? This video attempts to answer that question as shown at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop.
Our team performs original factory style complete body panel replacements as well as patch panel installation, as we have the tools and experience to complete both types of repairs that are nearly undetectable when completed. Our fabrication shop uses resistance spot welders and TIG welders to install quarter panels, trunk floors, trunk drop-down panels, cabin floors, rocker panels, fenders, and more.
Contact the V8 Speed & Resto Shop if your classic car, muscle car, hot rod, truck, or other restoration project vehicle has rust or damage to repair.

The V8 Speed & Resto Shop had the privlege of restoring this very special 1951 Chevrolet pickup truck, which belonged to the customer's Grandfather. The truck arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop on multiple trailers with major amounts of rust and damage, having been a working farm truck for decades. Our team performed a complete restoration on the truck, including rust repair, bodywork, paint work, a V8 engine conversion, and restoration of the dump-truck bed and mechanism originally installed by the customer's Grandfather. Once completed, the family drove the truck from their grandparent's farm in Northwest Illinois to Liberty Lake, Washington, and were kind enough to share photos of their journey along the way. Fortunately, they made the trip without any issues, and had a great time along the way. Follow along on a great American Road Trip in a special family heirloom truck!
