Seat belt Rust repair/Frame Repair/SOA

..start by finding a small rust hole you want to fix....

said hole...



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

seat mount...



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...

Everytime I read one of these rust threads I love california that much more. I'm rust free and can remove any bolt at anytime with-out a week of PB prep

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!

Amen Brian,

Just pulled my trac bars yesterday without PB or even a BFH. Very easy with no rust issues.

ok great we have established that in the north you get rust... like I said, the rust is due to previous damage on this side, the other side is perfect....

beside I will take my non smog carberated jeep and my free healthcare over your no salt....


moving on, anyone got some ideas or advice to make this all pretty again...

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.
