67 Frame Body Mount Repair Opinions
I wanted to get your opinions on what is the best way to repair a rusted out frame body mount.
I have purchased the large washers that are sized correctly for an A-body frame repair.
As I see it, there are three options:
1) Cut out a hole the size of the washer and weld it in
2) Leave all the existing material and weld it over the rusted out section
2a)Do this on both sides to make that mounting point even on both sides.
3) Weld from underneath.
I would think that option 2 would be the strongest because it would leave the most material, but I worry that there would be a space between the repair washer and the old material giving a place for more rust to occur.
If option 2 is the best, do you think that I need a washer welded on both sides to keep it even? I wouldn't think that washer thickness would make that much difference.
I have added a few pictures as reference. The first picture is the rusted mount. Second is how I proposed to weld the washer on in option 2. Third is welding from underneath, and the fourth is the mount on the other side. You can see that mount is a little rusted, but not too bad.
Thanks in advance for your input.
