Rear Hatch Holes

5 posts in this topic

I just removed the whale tale from my '72 and now I can see just how many holes there are in the hatch. Including 8 holes for the louvers (which are no longer on the car) I have a total of 12 holes! Otherwise the glass and hatch are in good shape without any rust. Should I be shopping for a new hatch or just plan to have the holes repaired? The car was built in 12/71 and has vertical defroster lines in the rear window. I don't plan to reinstall the louvers which I don't have anyway. Thanks for your input on this one!

Thanks for the input. I will be keeping a welder busy since there are also 6 holes total in the rear fenders. I will stop prowling Craigslist on this item too.

Hmm, you must not have you're own set up. Anyhow since you are hiring out it, keep in mind this is one of the easer jobs to do, I would say about an hour for a good welder to close up the holes and smooth out. (if were I, I would use weld through primer only because welds are more prone to corrosion).
