Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you
have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a
1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this
video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof

Easy Rust Repair the 'Hack' Way -EricTheCarGuy
As you may know my 1993 Acura Vigor had some pretty bad water leaks into
the trunk due to rust issues. To repair them I needed to do a little body
work. In this video I show how to do body work using 'hack' methods to get
you by. In order to do this 'properly' it would have been best to cut out
the old rusted material and weld in new metal. I didn't feel that my $500
Acura Vigor was worth that effort so I did what you see here in this video.
As stated this method works very well for floor pans or other areas where
you're not necessarily going to see the finished product. Honestly, I don't
think things turned out so bad, in fact, I have a new appreciation for the
car now that I've done this work, despite the fact that the paint doesn't'
match. Perhaps one day I'll go back and finish it properly and respray the
entire car. For now, I have other work to do to keep this car in good
