Episode 69 Part 1 Installing a front floor pan in a 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 Mustang, Autorestomod
This week we start the install of a partial floor pan in a 1968 Mustang. The metod we are using will allow you to hide the repair and not install a complete pan. It will also cut down on welds that need to be ground down.
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.

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.

DIY POR15 - How To Apply POR15 To a Floorpan on 66 Mustang
For Supplies visit http://CollisionBlast.com/Supplies - FREE access to
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.
This image shows how ordinary paints and coatings adhere to most surfaces.
They rest on top, not really penetrating the surface to make a se-

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.

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.
Rusty Roof Replacement - 1968 Cougar
If you have an old car that came with a vinyl top, chances are that you
have some rust issues in the roof. This was the case with Andrew's car - a
1968 Mercury Cougar that his grandparents bought brand new in '68. In this
video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof
skin with a solid donor roof from another car. He is by no means a
restoration expert, just an amateur trying to save some money and save his

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
