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.

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...

http://CollisionBlast.com DIY Por 15 Part 1 - How To Prep Rust Before
Applying POR 15 using Marine Clean and Metal Ready.
For rusted metal, such as the floor board on this Mustang, there are two options when
prepping for POR 15. The first option, I am going to demonstrate in this
video. The second option is to have the metal blasted to bare metal.
MARINE CLEAN is a complex mixture of organic & inorganic chemicals. It is
non-toxic, biodegradable, water-based, and has no noxious odors nor
chlorinated solvents. It doesn't contain any petroleum products and has no
flash point. Marine Clean repre- sents a revolutionary breakthrough in
cleaners, degreasers and dispersants.
Use MARINE-CLEAN for cleaning and degreasing machinery parts, turbine
blades, diesel engines, compressors, transformers, bulkheads, deck plates,
bilge areas; removal of oily deposits found in closed systems such as air
conditioning, boiler tubes, compressor lines, heat exchangers and coils;
removal of light distillates, mineral oils, heavy grease, degreasing all
metal surfaces, plastics, wood, fiberglass, painted surfaces. Always wear
eye protection and rubber gloves when using Marine Clean.
PREP & READY provides the best adhesion for POR-15® on any metal surface,
including aluminum and shiny polished metal surfaces. Our simple process
gently etches metal, creating an ideal anchor pattern for coatings such as
POR-15®, while simultaneously leaving a zinc phosphate coating to insure
chemical bonding of paint and steel. Avoid other preps that may leave
harmful residues which prevent proper adhesion. After thoroughly degreasing
your work piece, apply environmentally safe PREP & READY to both neutralize
any rust and etch any clean bare metal. This will allow better adhesion of
POR-15® or any other paint. PREP & READY is not caustic, corrosive, toxic

video, Andrew takes matters into his own hands to replace his rusted roof

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!

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.
