How to repair a large rusted out area on your vehicle
I'm just showing one way of a quick Diy repair without using a welder and patch metal this is a fairly easy process with little experience and tools needed, there are much better ways of doing this (welding on a jobber panel or patching with metal) but this is just a very cheep way no welding or experience in metal work needed and if the vehicle is rust proofed after the repairs and every season afterwards it will last for many years. Tools: Grinder or rotary tool Hammer Paint brush Paint scraper Palm sander (optional) Mixing board (old piece of sheet metal) Sanding block (block of wood) Body File Materials: Grinding Disks Rust Mort (if you can't remove all the rust) Short or long stand fiber glass filler (bondo Glass) Fiber glass cloth for cars not boats Body filler (Polyester body filler) Spot putty Wax paper (the stuff you use in the kitchen) Sand paper 80, 120, 240 grit Primer (use the stuff for autos only) Top coat (color match paint) Clear coat
Patching extensive unibody frame rust
I cut out and patch substantial rust damage on the unibody frame of my 95 Saturn. This is immediately behind one of the front wheels. The car was undercoated when it was new but the tires have sandblasted this section to expose the metal. Salt and water have rusted away the structure, which I had to cut out and replace. This may not be a professionally approved method but I do feel that is it solid. I will be coating the inside of the frame with rust inhibitor. Basically I cut away all the rust down to solid metal. Then I created a patch from scrap, formed it, and welded it solidly into place. Finally I painted it and will be undercoating it too. Redneck repair? Perhaps it is!
