I haven't done the rears yet but the frt. frame rails I just did. Cut out the rust and boxed in New 1/4 steel. My rears aren't bad but need attention.My rear coils are not secured to the car's frame. The frame has rusted out. Has anybody fixed the rusted metal that connects the rear suspension coils to the coil seat?
Jack stands lifted high, I blocked the rug with a piece of sheet metal, cut out the rust, sprayed a thick rust reformer in there for good measure and completely and boxed everything in. Thank you by the way, it really did turn out great. Really Looks factory, pics don't do it justice. The rears are not bad but gonna do them next. Alittle tricky because so many angles and bends but completely doable. Just have to remove the spring.Wow you did a great job! Did you weld without a lift, example.. just jacks?
I like that tab you used for ground.
what about the rug on the top side? Did it burn?
Do you need to cut out the rust, or could you just encapsulate?
Thanks! Those were the ONLY places rust had been. Both sides. There's absolutely no reason to junk a car like this, especially if you can simply fix it or know someone that can.I am sure there are people out there that would consider the car "totaled" due to rust. Seeing your repair makes me believe that these rust spot are not the end of a good car.
It gives me hope that my car will drive again.
