A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The

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,
