Miguel's Isetta body shortly after the body shop finished the paint. Sound proofing material being installed
Miguel and Susan Isetta bodies shortly after soda blasting what a mess but we can fix everything!!
Many dents due to past collisions as well poor rust repairs were covered with many layers of bondo which does show the extend of damage after the paint has been removed
Collision and bad body repairs shows the how poor these cars were repaired.
Now the reconstruction phase can begin
Floor board from Miguel Isetta. Many times patched over and over like adding a band aid
over another band aid
The floor has to come out to replace it with a brand new one
very badly patched areas with oversized washers and who knows what the rest of the weld looks like?
Holes on the driver side inner front fender with rough repairs around the lower sill
Large patch added to the driver side right in the middle. That has to be repaired with a better piece
Large hole to hold a special rear bumper tube to mount the bumper to the body.
The tube extend out from the rear frame member. I thought they had a hitch mounted through the hole but indeed they added a 30 Pound extension to mount the rear bumper!!
Parcel shelf with many pin holes which has to be repaired by adding a new parcel shelf section.
Bad patch job on the floor and rear fire wall area.
Inner fender is not too bad but right around the edges fresh metal has to be welded it.
Bad welds as well bad seams around the edges
Very rough craftmanship
Previous repairs failed to keep the engine side quarter panel nice and straight due to bad repairs on this area
Quarter panel has been badly patch.
Fresh metal has to be stitched into place
At least the engine panel was decent with small dents but not major just or damaged louvers
Inner passenger side wheel housing has dents and small holes but the transition toward the floor is bad. Therefore the floor will be cut out and a new side wall piece will be fabricated.
Pin holes on the angle parcel shelf panel
Bad floor and rocker panel
Rear roof line is badly damaged.
Needs to be massaged out since there are no replacement panels available
Damaged body shell after the bondo paint and rust has been removed. Sad but we can fix any Isetta shell
