Part 15: Repairing The Transmission Tunnel - My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration
Happy Friday everyone! It's been a little while since my last video as I've
been busy with beginning-of-season related activities: built a new air
compressor for the shop, put a new diff in my RX-7 and helped someone else
with an engine installation. It's taken a while to edit episode 15 (the
actual work was completed in March) but it's finally here! In part 15, I
repair the rust damaged areas of the transmission tunnel discovered during
blasting. The sheet metal surrounding the shifter hole and parking brake
handle area is cut out, patch panels are made and then welded into place.
Also a cracked driver side seat mount is repaired. Sheet metal work is time
consuming though not necessarily difficult and this is only a little work
of much to come. Included in this episode: cutting out rusted metal, making
templates, cutting patch panels, forming patch panels, welding in patch
panels, blasting rusty parts, repairing damaged brackets, removing spot
welds and replacing, lots of grinding.
Episode #4 - Metal Panel Replacement Techniques
In this episode Brad reviews three common techniques for welding
replacement steel panels or patches into vehicles. The episode ends with
the installation of the patch panel he made in Episode 1.
