What can we say, Dave Welch is a master at this stuff. This time, he shows us the nuts & bolts of repairing rusty floors and rockers with new sheetmetal. This is a deep dive from assessing the damage and replacement patch panel options, to cutting the metal off step-by-step and getting it all back together correctly. Like we said, Dave is a classic truck Specialist and he’s got plenty of tricks for nearly every project on your classic Chevrolet or GMC Pickup!
