VW Rear Apron Repair

VW Rear Apron RepairVW Rear Apron Repair is something this bug desperately needed! What the previous person did that restored this car was to put a lot of bondo on mistakes that they made. they also welded in the area where the exhaust usually comes through to make it a smooth back apron, however they did not cut away the old metal and make a butt weld, instead they just welded up the area, and it left huge dips in the apron.

What I had to do to fix this problem was to cut out the welded areas, and make a new butt weld. Here I rolled over some metal and matched the lines from the apron. I then welded in the new pieces, and ground the welds down smooth. On the under side of the apron, I cut off the excess material to make the whole back of the apron smooth, and one piece rather then before it was in noticeable pieces that didn’t quite match up.

The next project is to meta finish the welds, and then metal finish the rest of the apron. I will then put epoxy primer over the whole thing, and make sure the rest of it stays rust free!
