Need ideas about fixing the floor

Hello again.

Once the seat belt anchor points are welded, I am going after the floor.

I have rust under the driver's and passenger's feet. I have heard several ideas on how to deal with this area.

Cut it out and replace it with the prefab panels.

Grind out the rust, treat with pore15, then use herculiner.

Or grind out the rust, use pore 15 and fiberglass the sucker.

What do you think?

Too many choices......which is best???

I assume when you say rust you are not talking about surface rust. Guess the answer will depend on how big a rust hole you have. If kinda small welding a small plate in would work well.

Me I have some surface rust under the carpet up front, I am going to remove it with a wire brush, clean it all up and spray on Herculiner. I should be doing this all in under 2 weeks when the jeep gets back from the body shop.

If there are multiple holes or a big one a prefab plate might be good and easy, but won't be the cheapest way.
