The one I used is a little more expensive, I paid about $ 75 at our local supply place. Before I bought this one, I bought another Evercoat filler on Amazon, and it was something like $ 50, but it was harder to apply and to sand off.

The problem is, Evercoat makes so many different ones that you never know which one is the best. Looks like Tripper scored a good price on his though.

When I'm doing the much hated bodywork any product with the name "Rage" only makes me more pizzed off.

I know what you mean Tripper some things it's hard to spend lots of money on.

Default Roof rail repair

Hello,
I may have posted this once before, but I am having an issue with this repair.
46 Plymouth coupe.
I want to repair/replace the missing roof drip rail on the drivers side.
Passenger side is 100% intact.( Do not want to shave the rail)
Cannot find materials. Any ideas? Was thinking maybe I will need to hand form in sections? Looked for universal sections I could modify, but no such animal found.
Ideas welcomed. Thanks

Starting a new thread about your repair with photos is a good idea. There are a lot of clever ideas and methods than people here come up with, I'm sure someone will get you pointed on the right track.

OldBoy, I'll be watching your answers because I also have a '46 Plymouth coupe [rebadged as a Dodge, for Canada] with a wrecked drip-rail.
I have only done a wee bit of drip-rail straightening, just manual straightening and some heat shrinking, so I can't help you much.
