Great Idea!

What tools are you using for such intricate cutting?

I have a nibbler and tin snips - both are pneumatic harbor freight tools. And a dremmel with cutoff wheels for finishing the edges and detail corners/cutouts. Primary tool is the snips which provide an amazing degree of accuracy with a clean edge. They just can't turn a corner well. If you use the snips to run a cut line to another edge you can back the snips out and bend the rolled cut by hand and it will snap off cleanly at the stopping point.

I was wondering the same thing. I will have to check out the nibbler on the next harbor freight run .Very nice shapes. Easy to tell what that are. Are you using a stencil or drawing an outline.

I agree with AggieDude! I do need patches and I'd buy some from you. If you enjoy making the patches, why not post a notice in the classifieds?

I'll think about doing that. So far it's been the most enjoyable part of this renovation. I'm cleaning and rebuilding my Vista View windows now... Wish I was just cutting patches

Pygmy those are as nice as the rest. You could have a small side Hobby/Business of custom patches for those of us with holes. I like that you can tell what they all are. Nice artistry.

I used vulkem 116. A bead around the cut or opening being patched, a bead around the rivet holes, patch perimeter and for overkill I put some uninterrupted beads in the field of the patch. Nothing is getting in via those patches.

Yes, I'd like the wolf, my door panel got hit while driving, I pulled over but the other driver didn't stop!. I NEED TO REPLACE 1 maybe 2 panels and fix deep cuts in the side of the skin, the bear would maybe cover the damage.

How much would you sell a wolf / Koyote patch?

Hi I'm sorry I didn't get back in touch, I'm having trouble uploading photos, and the Airstream is not road ready, do you travel far to do these repairs? Airstream is in Snohomish currently in RV residential park.

I will try again to upload photos.
Regards
Katoline

Love the patches, especially this one!

Do you have a before pic of the area? I need to install a porch light and was curious about the hole needed.

Thanks

The porch light was existing when I bought the trailer. I patched it to reinforce and seal where the PO had over cut. I suggest buying the light you want and using cardboard to cut a template of the hole you'll need - test fitting with the light. Use vulkem 116 to seal.
