    so what did you do to thwart the potential for rust when you installed this? also wondering if it could be done with auto body adhesive...might need to call them

    Weld in, grind down cruddy spots, prep, prime, paint.

    No paint? Epoxy primer.

    I prepped the surfaces, double checked the fit and made a couple of minor tweaks, shot a good coat of weld-through primer, welded it in, then shot a coat of epoxy primer. The paint won't happen until I get to that stage in the build.

    pretty much what i was planning to do. but i don't like it, those two pieces make a great place for water to sit.
