Frame rust hole

1857 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  First Chevelle
Well, I am at the point were I can remove the body from the frame and I noticed a small rust hole (little smaller than a golf ball) on the bottom side of the frame right before the body bolt on the passenger side:sad:. Any suggestions on repairing this. Can this simply be welded? Is this an area of concern for support? Entire frame is solid as can be and then I just noticed this one. Kind of bummed out. Any help would be great.

I would hammer all over the frame once I had it out from under the car. Rust starts on the inside and chances are there is more you don't realize. easier to find and repair weak spots now than later. Went through this with a 67 el camino I did for my father. Had to swap frames and the doner car we found looked to have a perfect frame while looking at it from below..once it was out from under the truck and it had been sand blasted we found some areas that were thin and needed plated.
