Floor Rust sucks.
i pulled carpet in my Xj earlier this year to find much worse than that. mine was replated with 1/8" plate, that made a nice base for my cage i just installed as well.
pm me some pics, i dont wanna clutter up this thread, but im anxious to see.
I'll have pics tomorrow it was too late to paint, so i didnt snap any.
my update is this. the only floor left in my jeep is pretty much the tunnel and some of the wheel tubs. all the u channels are still there.
By the gas tank inlet, the rail is toasted, I'm platting both sides and the bottom with 3/16th. I'm tieing them into the back of the unibody which is still solid, and I'm also tieing it into the 3/16th plate that goes from spring shackle to spring shackle across the back. which is also one of my add ons.
I'll be doing more wire wheeling / plating that frame rail, and hopefully brushing in primer on everything thats exposed tomorrow.
If weather permits I'm working like 930am - 630 pm. minus some lunch at the highway joint.
I promise pictures. In other news, The tank i dropped out from under the tank was a jy tank i guess, yellow writing shows this.
Had a dark spot, i wire brushed, 3 holes in it. so there goes another 100$ on a new tank. FML I've emptied every pocket already.
My wife thinks im trying to cop one, but really I'm running her pockets for loose change.
