B Model cab rust


Recommended Posts

If you don't have a mig welder, get one. I bought a lower priced one from tractor supply and have been grinding the bad metal away on my B61 and welding in new metal patches. Its working good, and saves on body fill. Just have to set the welder on low so you don't burn through the metal. Tractor supply also has small sheets of metal that work perfect for this.

I agree,Richard. Bought a small Lincoln wire feed myself for the same purpose. :twothumbsup:

yup mine has been fixed once or twice already. the a bad spot. believe its where all three panels come together and they are overlapped so they rust in between. you need to cut the outside away, sandblast or seal the rust then replace the outside.

Is it possible to replace a rotted floor and supports with the cab still on the frame?

It is possible,but much easier and safer with the cab off the frame.....................Mark
