Eastwood Company: How about this welding video? Are YOU an Eastwood Guy? Check out this
video from Eastwood to find out:

Symon Simens: Nice job man!!!
McCartney Paint and Custom: Look at the rust issues on any vintage car and most involve 2 layers of
metal spot welded together. The factory uses these seam types primarily to
speed up the assembly process. Why would you want to add an unnecessary
layer that will create a rust problem all over again? This should be a
straight up butt weld repair. Proper fitment and trimming would eliminate
the need for a backer strip that will cause more rust.
MeBeYours: Hand job it
hinano316: awesome vid, just order my kit yesterday!
don boys: spot welds are low penetration, and when grinding off the welds to a flush,
ur welds will just snap off and disappear
deo1929: Instead of the backup strip, use Eastwood's Intergrip Panel Clamps (Item
#19016) for the butt welds. They work great.
dimitri13: Very informative! I'll be purchasing a kit soon :)
killabee312: lol "you can hand job it"
Mavstang73: Never put a grinder down with the wheel facing the ground. Other than that
Pookatube: Does this work on rust spots on a 1983-1991 Toyota Camry fender wheel well
or Subaru Outback?
Don C: Badass video, great job guys!
vcval: @6806goats1 , if you use the eastwood flange tool for this job it would
have gone faster and been neater although it has the potential to be a
moisture trap this can be solve by leadfilling the gap. As long as the
metal can support a butt joint i think that is the way to go , unless it is
a structural joint and the flange forms part of the structure like sale
panels to quarter panel joins , so i guess it does depend on the job
robotlicken: I'm looking at boxing my rail on my Fargo what kind of welder should I buy?
YellowBird1980: You can get seam pliers, drill bits, spot weld bits, and sheet metal screws
from Harbor Freight and spend less than half the money. Sheet metal from
any hardware like Tractor Supply or Farm and Fleet. DIY projects, save
money where you can!
Scoat TheGoat: What is your wire feed speed?
TheSeducer176: very neat and professional great job i will be buying me a kit.
Eastwood Company: Unlike most metal sold at local supply stores, this metal is aluminized
which resists corrosion. If you price out the same items elsewhere, you
will see the value of this kit.
Eastwood Company: Yes. Use Eastwood Seam Sealer.
vcval: wouldn't a Flanger/Punch Tool Pneumatic 7/32" aka Eastwood Item #31015 for
$89.99 be a better tool ????
ThePupstain: Id like to see how badly it warped the fender during the weld process.
english stuff is like jap stuff - thin
cyborgdale: Can you use brazing instead of a mig welder?
tattoome5150: great video.! thanks eastwood.
stevesdesk2004: would you use a seam sealer on the back of the patch so that you dont have
a moisture trap?
alex connolly: Good stuff, very informative. Thank you
Eastwood Company: For a job like that our Eastwood MIG 175 would do the job, or if you prefer
TIG, our TIG 200 would also do the job. You can find those on our website.
6806goats1: @vcval had to mod my post vice typing a second one. I would think flanging
would be the ticket on this. Eastwood had me thinking that flanging is the
way to go but that's been many moons ago. But even back then I was
wondering if flanging a panel is a moisture trap even if the panels are
coated with weldable primer. Just trying to figure out if butt welding is
now the bestter way or if it just depends on the job. Been a little over 12
years since I took body and fender classes time to revisit.
Eastwood Company: Correct. Use of seam sealer on the back on the patch will keep moisture
