MK2 Chassis rail repair

Recommended Posts

So it looks like I have some extra ventilation on my O/S chassis rail (MK2 RS2). Is this repairable or do I need to replace the entire rail ? If a repair is possible what gauge of steel should I be looking at ?

Many thanks

Yep that's an easy fix, grind it all back to good metal, add rust protection, fab up
New cover plates in 2mm mild steel and weld it all up, simples

Thanks very much for the reply. So for the repair plate, would an overlapping plate be best or a plate that fits into the hole ? Also any recommendations for rust proofing stuff ?

Neutrarust is excellent but ££. Or any good rust treatment ( krust ) . Me personally would fab the plates with double fold so they fit to bottom of car floor. And wrap around chassis section. Hope this makes sence.
