Rust near front sill

This is the section to see what is hidding behind those panels, and how to get rid of the tin worm, cutting out and welding in fresh metal, protection and paint.

Rust near front sill

Postby ne.ross » Thu Mar 24, 2016 10:02 pm

So whilst inbetween coats in the wheel arch I jacked the whole car up and had a look underneath. I have found two patches of rust that my screwdriver was able to go through at the front of the car, behind the sill, (Im new to this so not sure the name of the part) hopefully the picture will explain what I mean. How do I go about getting it mended? Is it a massive task?


The picture was taking looking up at the sill from the floor

I should also note the holes are on the left hand side of the picture, the dark patch on the right is shadow caused by the underseal I scraped away

It needs sorting and looks like it is near the jacking point, not a big task for the right person, but all depands on how far that as spread.

Yeah it is near the jacking point on both sides, it needs a respray so it can get butchered as much as it needs to, the metal around it seems solid but obviously there are holes there. I have went into a bit more detail on my build thread.
