    patching hole in floor

    Okay, next week I am helping a buddy by patching a hole in his floor of his daily driver. It's an extremely small home maybe 1.5 inch by an inch. my question is should i use galvanized steel or just steel and paint it afterwards? Also would anyone in london have some sheet metal i could buy or them or grab?

    Not sure what year your taking about, but the hole may be small, but what about the rest of the metal around it? Once you start grinding to clear away the rust you will be surprised how a small hole becomes LARGE. If your going to do it right make sure you cut out all the rust. I would buy a 2'x2' piece of galv. steel. Go grab it at metal supermarkets, corner of oxford and airport rd.
    WARNING! I am about to do something really fawking STUPID!!!!!!

    Only problem with using galvanized is that its a pain to paint or put anything on, reason being nothing will stick to it, there is a prep process to it. If its just a dd, then use regular tin and coat it on both sides with roof cement, the black stuff in a litre can thats thick and gooey, it'll outlast the dd.
