What can I do with a nissan 240sx rusted frame.

Postby Elmer Oliver » Thu Apr 16, 2009 5:34 pm

I just bought a nissan 240 sx but it wont pass the inspection cuz the frame is to rusty. There is wholes developing at many places on the frame. I was wondering if there is anything I could do to fix it without spending to much money. Other than the frame the car is pefect I love it but sad that it wont pass the inspection.

Come down to Texas New Mexico and find one that overheated and ruined a motor. Take the non rusty car and all of your cars better interior and swap parts.

Re: What can I do with a nissan 240sx rusted frame. Don't just paint over those

Don't just paint over those rust spots/holes, use a torch to cut them out and weld in new sheetmetal, then paint it all a dark color to hide the unconventional yet perfectly safe repair. It's done all the time.



FYI, your 240 has a unibody, not a frame.

..why'd you buy one with that much rust, first off?? If it has that much rust then it's not passing inspection for a reason. The only way to repair that is have the rust cut out and new sheet metal welded back in, in it's place. This is pretty expensive b/c a full paint job is a must after all the body work. As stated, find a 240sx frame with minimal rust and swap in/out good stuff into the better body.. only way..



..or just buy another running 240sx/car..

Do not buy a new car or do not sandblast it. You can but small sheets to replace the holes. Put a few sheats on the bad spots on the unibody and then either primer paint or oil something to make the unibody look like it used to. I know thats all your car needs to pass inspection because the rest is good except get a new clutch you need one. But cover those up and paint them and you should be well on your way drifter!

I suggest you sand blast it to get the rust off and then put a good coat of primer on it that is a rust preventative.

Clean the rusted surface. Use your grinder to clean the rusted area down to the bare metal; to do this grind the area at least two inches around any crack or rust hole. Doing this will leave enough clean metal to weld a patch in place.
