"Do you think it needs cutting out and welding?"

Yes.

I would cut out all the rust to the rear of the leg about 3" square. Remember it's only rusted from the outside, so once it's removed and a piece welded in it will be sorted - of course you need to protect the inside of the chassis leg after the work is done.

Looks like you have the right environment for the job - I take it you don't have a welder ? a mobile guy will have this done in less than an hour.

Lee


Thanks Lee Thumb

So would you cut out a square with the hole in the middle?

My father's done some welding before so I'll ask him, but if he's not confident I'll get a mobile welder to do it

Have read all of this thread about 3 times so now have a full plan of action of cleaning, painting and squirting rust prevention wax into the chassis legs

Just haven't decided yet whether to go the POR-15 route or the cambjones Bilt Hamber route Question

1996 Porsche 993 Targa

Ok, time for my contribution.

I have not yet sanded back to bare metal to how bad it is. I was expecting worse.

For all 993 owners out there that have not had this work done, the question is not if there is rust, but how much. Get it looked at.

Hope you don't find any holes once you've sanded it back like I did with mine Sad

My number is 7099 by the way. It seems like they all have them but I haven't heard a consensus on what it refers to Question

you have rust on the ends of the legs and in the seams ... very similar to me

worth investing in a dremmel or something similar to do teh sanding in those leg ends as its hard to get to

Well done, but you do know that every time you drive your car the cylinders are wearing out Wink

Good man Notts..

It's good to see all the 993's getting sorted , they'll thank you well into the future.
It's good to keep the thread alive too so as many owners as possible see it , that was the point of starting it in the first place thumbsup

Hi

I had the passenger side off recently and found a good size hole, but strangely the other side which was inspected last week was almost perfect. Time for a mobile welder and some Tectyl.

(edit) Here is a pic of the good side...........



All the best

Hi

I am going to post this in the wanted section, but this also seems like a good spot if noone minds. I am after the passenger and drivers side supports that goes over where the rust is. The right angled steel sections as below........

Do not mind condition as long as it is not completely rusted and useless. Surface rust and a small hole would be fine. That was what mine was like before I misplaced them. I still have the heat shields so do not need those.

Will pay anything reasonable. I have given Porsche enough money for heat shields and fixings lately.

Part number is 993 504 115 00 and 01 and the picture below is from earlier in the thread......



Anyone have them after buying new?

Many thanks in advance

Berni

Just seen one from Porsche-apart on eBay - it is £29.99 buy it now with free p&p. If you search for 993 support it should come up. 29 days remaining. Not sure if it is the correct side but if it is then may be suitable for you.

Hi Award

Do you have a link please, I cannot find the auction. I did have a look yesterday before posting actually because I have seen them sell them before, but did not see.

All the best

Hi Berni,

I've had a look for you and I think Award may have seen an auction for something very similar but not exactly what it is you want!

The number for the one on ebay is 993 504 116 00 as opposed to 993 504 115 00.

I suspect that this is the link to what Award saw.
