FJ 60 Rust Repair

FJ 60 Rust Repair

dscn4215I have been watching a few patches of rust grow on the Land Cruiser for several years.  I was washing the truck a few weeks ago, it’s after winter wash.  While washing the left rear quarter I noticed a big patch in the very corner blast off.  It was a hole about 1″ by 3″ long.  I was just finishing loading up the remains of an old FJ60 I parted/scrapped.  For as much rust as it had, I was presently surprised to find the very corner I needed was intact.

dscn4214I cut out the bad area and used it as a template to cut out the patch.  Evidently I didn’t do to well measuring as I had to cut a little extra and double patch.  After getting the patch about right, I tacked it in place, then went around, ever inch or so at a time to keep it from getting too hot, and filled in the missed spots.  After that, I ground it down, filled with some “Liquid Metal” sanded and painted.

It took a while, but wasn’t too bad for a first try.  Hopefully it will last for a while.
