Cardboard is far more malleable and easy to cut than steel. An accurate cardboard template is incredibly important in creating a repair patch, and Michael shows you how.

    Great and instructive video! I would have liked to have seen the actual creation of the fabricated panel. I have a number of these types of repair panels to do on my restoration but, I would have liked to have seen the method(s) by which you create that almost complex panel - the concave part, particularly. At the moment, I'm not sure what to do for the best?

    Does this video not finish too early? Anybody can cut pieces of cardboard out but tranferring that information in to a repair piece is another matter. IS there a separate video for that?
