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.

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.

Spot welding is accomplished by clamping two panels together and fusing them with a number of welds sequentially-placed rather than a continuous bead to hold the panels together. This kit is designed to be used with Eastwood's Welders as well as any other brand welder that utilizes a Tweco® Style MIG torch. Watch the video to see the product in-action!





Flux (not Mig) Welding - the Wire Makes a HUGE Difference
Flux (not Mig) Welding - the Wire Makes a HUGE Difference. In many cases the DIY'er can get away with just using a flux core welder versus getting the bottle of argon and MIG welding. The brand and quality of the flux cored wire makes a huge difference. I'm an amateur welder and the flux cored wire that came with the Mig welder was very low quality. I don't want to bother with getting a tank of argon and doing Mig weldig so to find some flux wire that makes decent enough welds for an amateur welder is a major plus. The flux core wire I tried on welding a 3/16 hole in thin 18 gauge sheet metal worked very very for me and did not burn through. The stuff I used was INETUB BA71TGS .030-Inch. You may be able to get away with doing some occasional auto body work just using a simple flux welder (with the right wire) versus having to a Mig welder and the bottle of argon. For fixing floor rust the flux welder will work good except if you are very finicky and want the best show finish in places on the car where you don't see. Also this flux wire would work fine with installing a quarter panel if you only weld in the required places on the quarter panel, like on the very bottom and maybe where the taillight extension attaches. You would not want to try to weld in a whole quarter-panel with a flux-core welder. The long seam along the top of the quarter panel could be installed over a flange with special body panel adhesive. That stuff is plenty strong and the flux welder could be used along the very bottom where welding is often essential. This stuff by INETUB comes in a lime green spool and says "INE: on it. I think it is as good as the wire from Lincoln Electric.

Diy Large Rust Hole Repair on your Auto Part 3 (patch)
I this video I'm trying to cover more detail and all the steps in the fiberglass patch repair that I had shown in an older video (how to repair a large rust hole on your vehicle). This is a Diy repair not restoration. I am showing this way to help people with less knowledge of metal forming and welding this is much better than tape and can keep you going for years and it will pass a road side inspection. If you don't mind how straight or smooth the finish is, you can finish the job a lot faster than in my video. This is just one way out of many most body man would recommend a replacement panel or patch that is welded but for an older car or beater this works fine, this is not restoration. I don't always do this I use metal for door skins, rockers, cab sides, floor pan, quarters etc but for hard to form areas fiberglass is the stuff, Do not do a repair like this if the structure of the car has been compromised.
