    Rust Repair On Chassis

    Dear AL Friends, There is a Toyota Hilux that has a 3”x 3” corrosive damage and a developing small crack on the chassis (Chassis location - at the center region straight line down from where the rear door hinges are mounted) does anyone know the technical procedure to get this job done? I figured out that MIG welding a plate would do (instead of ARC welding) but controlling and removing the rust is questionable. must I cut and remove the corroded region or must I just MIG weld the plate over the damaged surface???? Any ideas and advice would be very much of help. I would be also very grateful if someone would recommend a chassis specialist in Colombo who will be able to get the job done. Thank you very much and wish you all well.

    Lifespan of Radiator Hose

    Yes Davy you are right... kerosene is the main killer for all rubber parts and packing's also oil seals. And our local car wash and service lads use kerosene openly or in secret, diluting it with the recommended chemical (I don't know what its called). Regarding the hose clamps there is a debating issue Screw band ( A ) or wire clamp ( B ). some say wire clamps cut the hose but originally Japanese vehicles come with wire clamps for the radiator hose???
