Today: Rust repair on the pass door and rocker panel.
|Here's what I started with - holes in the rocker and on the leading edge of the door.|
|Started by cutting out the rocker rust and welding in fresh metal. Broke out the Harbor Freight air shears to cut the 16ga steel I used - I had expected them to behave like most tools I'd bought there, but amazingly enough these shears rock. My welds weren't particularly pretty, so I took no pic before grinding.|
|Then did the same on the holes up higher. Welds were prettier, but still no pre-grind pics.|
|Today's results from the garage. I've got a few tiny spots at the back of the rockers, 2 more spots on the pass door, and the driver's kick panel, then I am out of rust to repair with sheetmetal for now.|
