$25 dollar spare tire well rust fix.

Cut out the cancer. Saved the center mound. Tacked the newly cut doughnut and mound together, then tacked it to the car! A bit of filler, a respray, and I was good to go.
I know... Seems a bit juvenile, but then again I am cheap!
Saved enough for 2 cases of Sam Adams! Life is good.

Neat work! A lot better! Will tack welds alone (even a lot of them) be enough over time though considering it has to hold the weight of the tire?

Time will tell right?

Actually the new insert sits on top of a 1" or so rim of the old well... It isnt going to fall through anytime soon!
