Now to get our outer patch fabricated.. The corner is going to need a GRUNCH of shrinking.. We started on the Baileigh, but the dies are only going to get us so far. So some tuck shrinking with some heat for persuasion was used.. A tipping wheel in the bead roller was used to mark our bend line, and an upper press brake die used as an anvil to hammer the flanges over.. Some hammer action to stretch the corner flange so it will tip the full 90* I missed some in process pictures here, but various hammers, anvils, punches, and other implements of destruction were employed to give us our basic shape... After a bit of fine tuning, it is trimmed and fitted into the A Pillar... and the windshield stainless is test fit for good measure.. The finished piece is media blasted (Barton Garnet) so the SPI epoxy primer will have a good bite. The inside is primed as a bit more preventative measure over factory.... The flange is quite small compared to what we normally plug weld, so we opted for a .169 drill bit to keep the heat away from the edge... In order to clean he primer out the inside of our plug weld holes, we flattened and backfaced our drill bit to mimic an end mill.... Does a good job of giving us nice clean metal for a good weld.. much better.... .
