Weld the Right Rocker Panel (part 1)

Weld the Right Rocker Panel (part 1)

The right rocker panel goes much better because:

  • It was not so rusty and i didn’t cut a piece of the front crossbeam
  • I am getting better and better every next day
  • I used another type of wire (SuperArc L-56). Before i used Lincoln Electric S-6 MIG. (maybe)

Outer Side

The 3 future holes for plug welds are visible here.
The 3 plug weldings are done.

Again… the old metal burnt while i touched it, so i switched to 2.8 A and built the little mountain of metal.

Join the old and the new.

Inner Side

Weld new metal to new metal is much easier.

The back lift pipe went pretty well.
The inner side of the rocker panel.

It is better to have more spots than less 🙂

Additional Weldings

There was a weak hit in the front left side of the car, so i welded the front light holder.

I added just a few spots.

Behind the front left turning light the pieces were separated. I drilled 2 holes (almost not visible on this picture) for plug welds and connected the pieces.

Tightening the Pieces

I use a piece of flooring hardwood to tight the pieces together while welding.

It’s shape is perfect for this situation.

Нека ми бъде според както си казал.
