Okay in the US after 25 years old. No worse than some rusty rat rods on the road now.

Under the undercoating... some ugly patches.
Forgot the holes for the heatshield, can't find the drill, aah, just weld it.... :bigsmile:


Bolt to the bumber bracket broke....weld it!  (no picture of that though)

Why are those patch panels ugly? The high welds?

I can see how some of those pictures should use some additional grinding, but my understanding was to leave the welds a bit high so that the material isn't thinned out to much through grinding operations?

In my opinion, (and I am new to welding) it's not so much the welds (even if I would have grinded them) as is the location and choise of patcharea, the wheelhouse one is right over a seam, and its welded over the cutout, so it creates a rustpocket on the other side. The torquebox is a crooked patch in the middle, with a big rusthole above it, why not make it straight to the edge.... The third one has some bad welding I think, and no one bothered to drill the holes for the heatshield...

I think the welds are ugly because the welder was too cold; as in the power was not set high enough. Depending on the type of welder and it could be that they were using a stick welder or using flux core wire. The point here is that the weld material (stick or MIG wire) is not being allowed to melt/flow into the surrounding metal so it just stacks up. Welders call this "bubble gum". Normally, you would grind it down, however I suspect if you did on these it would be very thin and would easily crack, break.

Who give's a rat's Butt hole about that patch work.

Remove and replace these is what I would do.

Hack job work is ugly and many here see it when we restore our cars.
