Part 10: My 76 Mazda RX-5 Cosmo Restoration - Shaved Door Sheet Metal
In part 10 of my 1976 Mazda Cosmo restoration, I continue the surprisingly
long task of shaving the door handles. Last episode I left off after
cutting the patch panel to fill the hole in the passenger door. This time I
weld the panel in, fix the huge amount of warpage my improper welding
technique caused, then do the same on the passenger side. Shaving the door
handles took a lot more time than I thought it would and it feels nice to
have it all finally done. Included in this episode: patching door handle
holes, welding sheet metal, grinding down welds, hammering out warp caused
by welding, learning how to not screw it up next time.
Episode #4 - Metal Panel Replacement Techniques
In this episode Brad reviews three common techniques for welding

patching of rust .

on step by step guide - If you attempt a repair like the one seen in this
video please use the proper safety equipment,
Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The
right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in,
no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be
neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't
reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process...
Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially,
there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...
