DIY: Sheet Metal Repair & Patching
Video slideshow that outlines how to repair sheet metal. This demonstration
was done on a lawn tractor mower deck, but the same principles can be
applied to auto body work on vehicles. Most auto body panels do use a
thinner gauge steel, so when you welding, more care will have to be taken
to reduce the amount of heat distortion.
Removing the rusty soft/thin areas will allow for a solid area to weld the
patch to. This also reduces the chance of having the welder burn through
the existing steel.
After the hole has been cut, you are now able to make a patch for the
damaged area. For this I purchased similar gauge/thickness sheet metal. To
bent the steel, I used a couple concrete blocks for weight, a propane torch
to make the steel more pliable, and a hammer for forming. To cut the patch
to size I used an angle grinder and a file for any fine fitting
The cuts in the one rounded patch allows for the piece to be bent into two
different directions to match the contour of the mower deck.
Grind the paint off around the area where the patch will be welded to. This
will ensure that welder is able to arc on the existing surface properly.
The tack welds hold the piece in place and allow me to align the patch to
the existing surface. For the welding, I used a small flux core mig welder.
Running small/short (approx. 1" length) welding beads reduces the amount of
distortion within the sheet metal which is caused by excessive heat. This
will have to be adjusted accordingly depending on the gauge/thickness of
For grinding down the welds I used the angle grinder with standard grinding
disc for the higher areas and a flap disc to smoothen the surface.
For paint, I used low gloss black farm equipment painted which I brushed
