Repairing a rust hole in a WWII jeep body part can be accomplished by either replacing the rusted panel by spot welding in a new panel or by butt-welding in a patch. Butt-welding in a patch piece is more labor intensive in some cases, but it preserves more of the originla body metal.
The link below brings you to a list of 15 pictures
show the work done in chronological order to repair a rust hole in a
MB driver-side step. The tub is upside down to facilitate the
and has already been sandblasted. The tools used are a gas
mig welder, a small die grinder with a cutting wheel to remove the
area, tin snips to make the repair part, hammer and dolly, and angle
to remove the weld beads. View the images from the top of the
to the bottom to see the work unfold.
