Auto Body Replacement
Installing new auto body panels on a car is an inevitable part of most restorations. If you've fabricated fresh sheet metal or just need to put a replacement on that you've freshened up, then you will need the right tools and accessories to do it right. Eastwood's body panel installation supplies can be used for full-size panels or patch panels that are going on your latest steed. Back by four decades and counting of DIY knowledge, this equipment will give you secure, properly aligned results.
Body Panel Installation Kits
Get all the materials you need for repairs or replacements with one of our body panel kits. The Eastwood Panel Install Kit includes aluminized sheet metal, pliers and hardware for creating and attaching patch panels, while the separate auto patch panel kit has numerous raw panels that can be cut and formed as needed. A solid rivet kit is a complete solution for attaching full-size panels in a structurally sound way. We even have a no-weld repair kit for plugging small rust holes with minimal surface prep and filler.
Tools & Accessories
Your car will look like it was professionally assembled when you use the right body panel tools. Riveting is still the preferred method for securing thinner sheet metals, and we have many sizes of rivets and blind rivets plus the rivet guns to install them. Get an auto body flange tool for repairing flush panels or a combination flanger and hole punch that creates the rivet holes as well. With panel gap setting tools, plug welding tools, compression pliers, profile gauges and other equipment, there's no shortage of options for any new install.
