Rust hole removal and repair. Repairing a rust hole in your car is something that should be done quickly to prevent it from spreading. You can easily do this at home with some practice and get the results you see in this video. I teach you the basics of what welder you want to use and how to weld so you can get started. I answer questions like, should you butt weld or lap weld floor panels? Rust is common at the wheel wells, quarter panels, rocker panels, and floor boards of cars and in this video I show the proper and most thorough way to remove and repair rust.

    Hey, great video. I’ve never seen those nibbler things before. Seems like I need one, just not sure for what yet, haha. I love buying tools!

    • RuggedRebel57 says:

      They have even fancier ones that go x5 that Speed that Contractors use for Metal Roofing. Its a big attachment that they put on their drills.

    • Jason Strout says:

      @RuggedRebel57 Those are called shears and they cut the metal differently than nibbler’s but both are equally cool. Hope you have a great week also.
