The rear bumper brackets on my jetta were both rotted away.
I was able to find a part number stamped in one of them, and it turns out they are still available new from the dealer! $3.10 each:)
After cutting away the old rotted section, I had to make a patch panel. Remember all those different pick radii on my hammers? Well the Fairmount fit the original dimple the best. I have found this is a pretty easy way to hand-form a bead in small parts.
Just as before - patch each layer, weld-thru primer, then weld on the next!
One side done and primered.
Note: start with a cleaner shell next time!
