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.

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.

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.
