Rusted and broken bolt froze inside a body panel.

Before MIG: Drill bolt. Break drill bit, get another drill bit, drill hole off-center, get a easy-out, break easy-out, cuss-n-swear and drill hole next to it to put a new bolt in.

After MIG: Drill small hole a few mm into bolt, place a nut over the broken stud and fill the center with molten metal. By the time you put your gun in a safe place, grab a wrench and remove broken bolt.

We'll see how well I can weld chinese crap pot metal - I have to grind a bit, but it looks like I got decent penetration from preheating it with a torch.

Did I say how much I love my welder???
