Hi, I Have 1985 Toyota Pickup truck and am planning on Cutting out the bad rusted rotten parts of my frame and welding in new pieces of steel. I am just wondering as to what you guys think is the best way to go about this?... Is it best to stitch weld the pieces of plate in or weld one long bead in?, The worst size patch i'm looking at welding in is probably about 4X8 inches, the rest of the frame is in rather good condition except for that large effected area. I have posted two pictures of the two parts of the frame that need repair.
Any help is very very much appreciated as far as the best (strongest) way to weld these patches in. Thanks.
