Welding needed

A Twig

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Eventually got round to dealing with some "light surface rust" on my rear x-member. Few seconds with the wire brush revealed this.


Firstly, is there any kind soul near Bath who is handy with a welder and would mind patching it for me in exchange for beer tokens/pizza/jaffa cakes?

Secondly, given that this is the second patch now, is this the beginning of the end? Should I start saving for my galv chassis?

seeing a tiny hole like that and resorting to a galv chassis is a little extreme!!

That hole is completely repairable, and before a chassis swap is on the cards id think about a replacement rear crossmember.

(ofcourse this is said without knowing the condition of the rest of the chassis)

Just thought I'd post on here to say thanks to the ridiculously large number of kind hearted souls who offered their time and expertise, was far more than I was expecting! Mr Turbocharger it was in the end who did a very solid job. This has definitely provided me the proper kick up the proverbial to put my wallet where my mouth is and support the Forum.

Thanks once again! :)
