Welding a rust hole

I had a small bit of cancer under the paint, until I went to grind it off. I ended up with a 1"x2" hole in the windshield pillar. After digging out some old putty the factory had put inside there (which probably caused this whole problem in the first place), I cut out a small bit of sheet metal to the shape/size of the hole, and welded it in.

How to Patch Rusty Metal
Cutting out and patching rust is normal when restoring a classic car. In this episode of the '57 Studebaker Silver Hawk Restoration Project, Tool Dude Tony cuts the rust out of the trunk lid and fabricates a patch that he welds in to complete the repair. This is another episode in the '57 Studebaker Silver Hawk Restoration Project.

DIY: Sheet Metal Repair & Patching
Video slideshow that outlines how to repair sheet metal. This demonstration was done on a lawn tractor mower deck, but the same principles can be applied to auto body work on vehicles. Most auto body panels do use a thinner gauge steel, so when you welding, more care will have to be taken to reduce the amount of heat distortion. Removing the rusty soft/thin areas will allow for a solid area to weld the patch to. This also reduces the chance of having the welder burn through the existing steel. After the hole has been cut, you are now able to make a patch for the damaged area. For this I purchased similar gauge/thickness sheet metal. To bent the steel, I used a couple concrete blocks for weight, a propane torch to make the steel more pliable, and a hammer for forming. To cut the patch to size I used an angle grinder and a file for any fine fitting adjustments. The cuts in the one rounded patch allows for the piece to be bent into two different directions to match the contour of the mower deck. Grind the paint off around the area where the patch will be welded to. This will ensure that welder is able to arc on the existing surface properly. The tack welds hold the piece in place and allow me to align the patch to the existing surface. For the welding, I used a small flux core mig welder. Running small/short (approx. 1" length) welding beads reduces the amount of distortion within the sheet metal which is caused by excessive heat. This will have to be adjusted accordingly depending on the gauge/thickness of steel. For grinding down the welds I used the angle grinder with standard grinding disc for the higher areas and a flap disc to smoothen the surface. For paint, I used low gloss black farm equipment painted which I brushed on.

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.

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.

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...
