patch panels

Post by ekdave » Wed 24 May, 2017 7:47 pm

I spoke with forum sponsor today enquiring about patch panels for my 1961 sed, have come from restoring other cars, I would have thought that there would have been a supplier of patch panels considering there must be 1000,s of these model world wide, to my surprise the answer was No ?

whilst make panels is not an issue to me, purchase of good used panels ot repair part would have sped th job up somewhat ..

if anyone knows of supplier here or os please yell out

Thanks David

They can be pricey so shopping around is the best way to keep costs down. There are still plenty of dead finnys to be harvested yet so don't hurry when you look to make panels, It can be easier to chop up a wreck .

yes I agree mercmad a donor panel would be the easy path and I'm in no rush with this project

I'll be completely stripping my '62 220SEb so let me know what you need and I'll see what's salvageable.

lol my 1 st thought was looks way better than mine how much for the whole car ?

but if guards are not ro rusted that's a start ,also bnnet, my door are an easy fix ,, saying that without removing them to fully inspect in sure there will be other parts as I progress

Thanks David\
