I split the seat back from the seat bottom. I intend to cut away the damaged portion of the seat bottom and weld in a repair. For the seat bottom, I'll grind or otherwise remove the portions of the seat back that weren't rusted away or that I couldn't get off.
Do all that, clean it all up and put some POR-15 on it. I bought their inexpensive starter kit from Amazon a while ago and I figure this is a good opportunity to try it out.
|The ragged bottom. I used a cut-off wheel on my Dremel. That's all surface rust, by the way, post-vinegar.|
|The seat bottom. I have to do a bit of research on the center piece with the holes...think it's for the seat clip.|
|Having never used a set before, we'll see. Lots cheaper than the pro stuff, that's for sure!|
