D-5. Inspection of Underbody.
. Corrosion damage in areas marked X is repairable if caps supplied for those areas
cover rusted-out sections, and plug weld holes are located over solid metal.
. To repair rust damaged vehicles in areas marked X, order body replacement kit
#B1230250-6 (M151A2 only).
a. Inspect underside of vehicle for corrosion
damage (see Figure D-7). Pay special attention to areas
marked X, in which corrosion commonly occurs. These
areas are critical, high-load areas. Excessive corrosion
damage in these areas (corrosion which has penetrated
entirely through metal) will render a vehicle nonrepair-
Body patches can be welded to body to ac-
complish repair. The resultant patch must,
however, be as strong or stronger than the
original material it is replacing,
b. Probe underside of vehicle with a punch and
hammer, Locate badly corroded areas, and determine
if vehicle meets required criteria for repair.
