How to MIG weld a patch in car floor pan. E30 bmw.
This is my first welding how to video. I have been welding new steel into
my 325i sport for the last 6 months. When I started there were not a lot of
HD youtube videos on mig welding on cars so I thought I would make one.
I used 1.8mm steel sheet, a Lincoln Powermig 180c welder and 0.6mm super
arc wire with a Argonshield shielding gas.
I am sorry my head is in the way of some of it. I didn't realise until I
looked through the footage later.

Part one of a floor pan fabrication for the 66 Chevy Caprice.
Aftermarket pans were around $100 each and
still didn't cover all the area I needed to replace.
I got the sheet metal for free from an industrial
shelving unit I found. It's the same gauge too!
Tools are from Harbor Freight or Homemade.
DIY POR15 - How To Apply POR15 To a Floorpan on 66 Mustang

training at http://CollisionBlast.com - POR-15® is a high performance
coating designed for ap- plication directly on rusted or seasoned metal
surfaces and concrete. POR-15® is non-porous and seals and protects many
surfaces from water, chemicals, salt, and other cor- rosive contaminants.
POR-15® is an effective anti-corrosive and rust preventive coating that
offers superior chemical resistance due to its dense, cross-linked
molecular compo- sition and non-porous attributes.
For over 25 years, POR-15® has been applied on thou- sands of vehicles and
structures around the world. Our restoration products can be found in
Antique Car Muse- ums, Classic Car Shows, hundreds of body and restoration
shops, as well as on government and local municipality trucks and
equipment. Extend the life of any metal by pro- tecting it with POR-15®.
The following is a small sample of how people are using our products:
• Frame Coating
• Snow Plows
• Holding Tanks
• Air Conditioner & Refrigerator Parts
• Field Equipment
• Any metal surface suffering from corrosion
What makes POR-15® so tough?
When you apply POR-15® to a rusted metal surface, the first thing you
notice is the flow of the product and the way it seems to penetrate the
metal. What you are seeing is the amazing tenacity of POR-15® and the way
it chemically re- acts to "grab" onto rusted metal like nothing you have
ever seen! We call this polydigitalTM adhesion, and nothing else can match
its' bond strength and resilience.
This first image displays the polydigitalTM (multi finger like) adhesion
that POR-15® exhibits on any surface. POR-15® penetrates the metal, con-
crete, or wood and grabs
hold of it to create a bond unlike any other. Once fully cured, the surface
dries to a rock hard, non-porous barrier protecting against rust and

While this image shows you the penetration and adhesion of POR-15®, as
well its' unique molecular structure, other coatings merely attach
themselves to the surface.

cure bond. These coatings will chip and peel easily when something impacts
the surface. That's why polydigital adhesion is a su- perior technology
exclusive to POR-15 alone.

Episode 70 Part 2 Seamless floor pan installation, 1965--70 Mustang, Autorestomod
We finish the installation of the National Parts Depot Mustang floor pan in our weekend
project 1968 Mustang
hardtop! In this episode we only replace the sections needed. Gary Jackson
shows how to cut, weld, and grind a pan for a seamless repair that will
give a factory look without using the full pan. This method will also be
easier due to less welding and grinding.
