It depends on how large the hole is. I have one that's about quarter size, going to round it out and put in a plastic plug for a drain. I was going to hit the whole area with that rust conversion stuff, then coat it with asphaltic varnish to prevent further corrosion. That way I can periodically rinse the whole area out with soda water solution. The only thing is that my source for asphaltic varnish has dried up before I could get a quart. If you have larger holes, your only recourse is to get some plate welded back over the area. The varnish bit is still a good idea after, I think. I looked at those Optima batteries, I could buy 20 years worth of regular Interstate ones for what they wanted for one locally. Five years is all you're going to get for life on one. Hope you find out they're worth it. On Sat, 14 Feb 1998 18:13:57 -0600 (CST), you wrote: >What to do about the largely rusted place under the battery, >which is my only pan rust?
