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.
How to Repair Rust and Weld Body Panels
This video is doing the rust repair on my BMW e46 325xi, over the years the
Canadian winters had taken it's toll and I let it go for too long and rust
started to form in the rear quarters. it go to the point to where the rust
started to bubble and and I knew it was too far gone. I had no choice but
to cut the rusted sections and replace with new sheet metal. the hardest
part of this task was drinking beers and bending the metal to the right
shape to make it fit.

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...
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.
