DIY Rust repair - Rear quarter/fender
Compliments of Smaggo @ club4ag.com
My car is rusted out. I am going to try and fix it. Perhaps some of what I do can help you fix you're own car.
Welder - I use a MIG welder with .23 solid core wire - 75/24/1 Argon mix
Angle Grinder - cutting/grinding/sanding
Jig Saw - For cutting the wood used to mold the sheet metal
Hammers and Dollies
.22 gauge sheet metal
Wood - I had some Pine Plywood from another project I used
Work in progress.
Thx for the comments. This is the first time I weld sheet metal/shape it.
I was told by a guy advertising on CL as a welder with 30 years exp, that I should junk my car, that it would be impossible for me to fix, and that people charge thousands of dollars to do this type of repair on classic cars.
I will add more details on the work as I go.
Primer on bare metal
Final clean up after welding the holes where I burnt thru
Some Bondo... Not exactly sure how this will end up yet.
All suggestions welcome, thx in advance.
