Just wondering what metal working tools tools and what too get to help with my restoration 66 project. Needs a full restoration so want to take it down to bare metal and work outwards.

To start, do you want electric or air powered tools? If air powered, best would be a minimum of a 60gal compressor, although it has been done with smaller compressors. You will also need a welder of around 100 to 175 amps. Most of these require 220/240V service. It has been done with a 110V welder, but they just don't have the penetration, if required, on thicker materials of the 220V units.
Take an inventory of what tools you have now, then follow the threads on this website on body work to see what tools will apply to your project.

This is a duplicate thread of another in this same forum. A moderator might combine them.

The programmers of the latest forum software decided not to carry over the feature of thread merging form the old forum. One of many failings. If Mr.Persons would be kind enough to copy and paste his on-topic and helpful post into that other thread then we might could delete this thread. Or lock it anyway.
