1995 Subaru Legacy - Quick and dirty repair of rust hole
Anyone who drives a Subaru in an area where there's road salt knows that
these cars pick up rust spots behind the rear wheels.
Since this is my daily driver, I can't take it off the road for more than a
few hours for necessary repairs. In this video, I chop out some rusty metal
and make a hard-as-a-rock patch.
Looks terrible, but is cheap, and should be durable, plus should delay the
future spread of rust in this spot.

Butt Welding Sheet Metal With A Mig Welder
If you are doing rust repair patches on your restoration project, I put
together a few tips for you on how to avoid blowing holes through your
seams: Use short bursts, pull the gun away from the work a bit to make a
cooler weld, don't point the gun directly at the weld, hold it at an angle,
weld on the last weld, that's the thickest piece of metal, use a copper
backing plate to prevent fall out.
