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.
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.

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
