Thanks very much eveyone. My general plan is to start with the car door. Remove one side, dismantle, take to a body shop and repair... Not sure if my next question is against the forum rules. I live in Orland area, any suggestions about a body shop I can go to? As suggested in one of your reply, most shops do not want to touch older car...
Just saw your post. My suggestion would be to contact your local AACA club since there are many picky restorers in there, many with pre WWII cars. They usually know who to use and who to run from. The national organization can give you contact numbers for local club officers. Website is: Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) - Regions & Chapters | Community
Hope this helps!
