I just finished sandblasting my 47 Plymouth body and as expected there are some repairs needed. I was expecting most of the damage around the bottom of the body. I had not thought about the drip rails over the doors. They are full of holes in several places! Are there replacement pieces and if so how much trouble is it to install them? Or maybe I sould just grind them off completely and fill in the gap?

The rails are smaller in diameter than my pinky finger! If I weld them, the weld will create a lump on the inside of the tube and there is no way to grind it smooth, as the inside diameter is too small access? The lumps of weld would just cause trash and dirt to catch on them, the water would just well up and run over the side of the rail.

Thanks there "44"... I was hoping you would have some good news for me. This car is getting more like my diet... More pain less gain.
I'll take another look at the drip rail connections. Then probably slip off into depression.
