1995 Subaru Legacy - Quick and dirty repair of rust hole
Anyone who drives a Subaru in an area where there's road salt knows that
these cars pick up rust spots behind the rear wheels.
Since this is my daily driver, I can't take it off the road for more than a
few hours for necessary repairs. In this video, I chop out some rusty metal
and make a hard-as-a-rock patch.
Looks terrible, but is cheap, and should be durable, plus should delay the
future spread of rust in this spot.

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...
REPAIRING A WHEELARCH
This wheelarch, like many others, is double skinned. This video shows
repairing it with pingun and panel pullers.
poor man's floor pan (1)
Part one of a floor pan fabrication for the 66 Chevy Caprice.
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
shelving unit I found. It's the same gauge too!
Tools are from Harbor Freight or Homemade.
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
