..start by finding a small rust hole you want to fix....
I want to fix it cause Im having the same issue another guy posted, flexing the panel to much and the seat belt is falling out now so.....ya......prolly time ot take a look at it....
so before you do this make sure you take a GOOD look ...upon closer inspectin my body mount is cracked and falling thru the flor as well, and hte seat mount it cracked bad, this I already knew...the body mount I did NOT.
SO first off
so I pull the rock guards off and WOOHOO another small hole...
off to the right...
off I go cutting.... to add more to the story this side of the Jeep was smakced a few years back before me, so it is about 1/4 iof bondo on the whole side...this I knew to as I painted it before, but the previous damage is taking it tole now, I just need to snuff it up so I can put my new fenders on, what started all this was the family roll bar swap, I took the bar out and figured WTH might was well do this at the same time...
anyway here it is now, this will take some time as I dont have alot of free tiem this week, and need someone to do the welding for me, I R Not a welder...
The tuff part will be replacing hte C channel for the body mount and getting the side to line up, I have to make a piece on the insdie as well were hte seat belt mounts, the little part that sticks out, really dumb design when you cut into it actually.....
any idears from ppl who did this...
Started with some rust repairs ended in a SOA...
I would never buy a car that came from the north. They salt the roads to get rid of the ice and snow. Plus the snow clings to your car for monthes and you cannot clean it because it then will have a sheet of ice covering it so. The result is that they or you ruin your car.
I am reading this and thinking forward 5+ years when (not if) rust takes a good hold on my Jeep. It will not be as easy for me to cut out and replace panels because it lined the inside with Line-X. I guess I'll cross that bridge in 2015 if the earth still exists after 2012!

Dude have you ever lived up north? Yes we get snow and they salt the roads but a few days later it get above freezing and you wash your car and I normally presure wash underneath the Jeep it's realy not that big of a deal.
