    Awesome video mate! Great stuff helped me out heaps! Keep em coming bud :)

  2. Thanks for advice. …
    Thanks for advice. I will try it. I actually got really handy with that arc welder. I cleaned the bodywork better of paint and that helped the arc going. Also I first warm up the arc on other piece of metal and than its easier to get the weld started on the bodywork. It does take a lot of patients. When use 2mm arc I get less chance of burning thru a whole than 1.6mm. A Mig would be much easier Im sure Im gonna buy it one day. Thanks for you advice again I appreciate it a lot. )))

  3. As I trawl through …
    As I trawl through youtube videos, I always find something which is both interesting and improves my knowledge of a technique.It’s thanks to guys like you that these ‘tips and tricks of the trades’ are avalable for those interested to watch and learn. Will I ever repair a car sill panel? No, but I enjoyed watching anyway! Thanks for posting. Kind regards

  4. If you have a stick …
    If you have a stick welding machine, you could try using a carbon arc torch.
    This attaches to your arc welder and can be used to braze (not weld, I don’t think) mild steel using a brazing filler rod. I’m pretty sure that the carbon arc/brazing method is good for non structural repairs. You would need to check with your vehicle test authority to see if/where on a vehicle brazing repairs are acceptable. Definately no good on structural areas, though.

    Thanks again really appreciated :) greeting from Netherlands

  6. I use a mig with …
    I use a mig with 135 maximum amps capability ( about 20-40 amps when welding panel steel ) all panel men use .6 dia wire and gas as a welding shield. argon or CO2.
    Local engineering shop can advise you . but shop around
    Restolad.

    Awesome thans for advice what Mig welding machine would you suggest and does it need to be with gass or can one use a Flux cord, really thanks a lot appreciate your advice all I know is computer geeks over here lol :P they usually know how to soldier though lol

  8. you would be …
    you would be struggling . you can stick weld down hand on very low amps
    but imagine vertical up or over head on panel steel . just impossible
    Restolad

  9. Splendid job, I got …
    Splendid job, I got a question. Could you weld such a patch with a sick welder. I m actually trying to do this but its very easy to burn trough the metal, also I seam to have really troubles getting the weld going when low amp. Than the stick sticks but to high amp and its impossible to weld I burn a whole. I tried 1,6 and 2mm electrode maybe my Ferm welding machine is not that good quality. Im pretty handy so I should be able to get it right. Maybe you got some suggestions, thanks.

    great skills,you know your stuff and your a good teacher but what is that thing on your chin ???? it doesn’t suit you

    Aaah right, can you get etch primer in a can, or does it have to be applied using a blow gun and compressor?

  13. no not a silly …
    no not a silly question
    when doing restoration work, the bear metal is primed before its covered with filler
    using etch primer or epoxy urethane primer
    this was a fast low cost repair.

  14. Silly question, …
    Silly question, would it not be prudent to put some sort of rust preventative coating over the welded patch prior to applying the filler? I know your supposed to put filler on bare metal, but I am concerned that the welds would start to rust under the filler.

    By the way, am enjoying your videos. Like your style!

  15. fantastic. echo the …
    fantastic. echo the previous comments about your teaching style restolad. you’re a natural. I’me very much a beginner, scouring the web for info I can use on my project at home. I’ve learned the most from your series (and pimpmykombi) I reckon.

  16. amateur repair. You …
    amateur repair. You keep talking about millimeters as opposed to fractions of a millimeter. Good repair for a car worth $ 200.00 not for a car worth 10,000 or more. Can I suggest that you use 1mm grinding discs instead of 3. Makes it a better cleaner, closer cut and you need to file your patch when welded, and not just grind it.

  17. Great feed back …
    Great feed back thanks, tell your tutor restolad sez Hi there !

  18. Not sure if your ” …
    Not sure if your “civics creamer” (as opposed to “civic screamer” take was intentional or not restolad, either way it cracked me up!
    Great vids man, really enjoy your work and hearing a kiwi accent for a change on youtube. I have picked up some great tips over the course of your videos. Keep up the good work!

    you are the boy restolad;-) im at college just now and its good to see someone carrying out repairs in a very similar way to which im being taught. i use your vids as a great reference tool and you’ve even been approved by my tutor. keep up the good work

    This is the modern way of rust repairs. Quick, easy and cost efficient. And that’s how the customer would have wanted it to be. If it were a full resto where original fit would have been desired it would have been done the full resto way -no cost or time spared
