Because most garage floors are concrete, you may also consider carpets or other material underneath the car to absorb/prevent moisture from condensing on the under-body potentially causing rust.

Not to worry you mate but it is my understanding that simply repairing the spot welds only masks the visual damage. It is the Ms inferior diff bracket design that needs reinforcement to prevent the welds from popping in the first place. Perhaps someone can correct me here? :roll:
