Alfa 156 floorpan hole
I've been getting the 156 sele ready for a MOT and some associated fettling.
I decided to apply a layer of bilt hamber hydro 80 to the pan, front crossmember and sills. Everything went according to plan and I finished it off with a nice layer of QD90. The only thing was, that when i was prepping the pan with a cup brush (attached to a percussion drill) i managed to rip a small hole in the floor on one side. I was possibly too aggressive.
I'm getting it patched tomorrow by a friendly chap i know locally. Question is, should i patch the small hole and just treat the rest as its pretty solid - i did have a good go with a screwdriver so it is really solid! Or should i cut a larger rectangular section out which takes out all the drain holes and have new metal welded in.
The bilt hamber product looks like it can treat small bits of existing rust and as the rest of the drain holes look solid i thought i'd treat those and just have a tiny patch done. Then treated and QD90'ed and it should be good to go?
Not a great design on these little drain holes as they attract water, so possible better off with them cut out?
