Okay so I'm gonna keep my Jeep till it has 250+k miles so i figured i might as well fix the rust that i have starting. So the rust is right behind the front wheels in the rockers. So my problem is A) i live in Wisconsin and B) when the PO got in a minor accident they replaced the fender and hood, but not the fender liner and what was left of it just trapped all of the mud and snow in the rocker.
So my idea to attack this is somewhat simple
1: Put it up on stands
2: Pull the wheel fender liner and anything in the way
3: Get all the rocks and garbage out somehow
4: Use a wire wheel on a drill and wire brush to get loose rust out
5: Some rust remover/reformer to cure the rest of the rust
6: use rusty metal primer to prepare the surfaces
7: roll on bedliner all over in there to seal it off
8: reinstall old/new (new if too badly broken) and seal them off with bredliner to prevent snow mud and everything from getting back in
9: Check it all to make sure nothing is getting
10: install new brakes and put wheels back on
So that all sounds so simple but will take a while and be a pain i believe so well see how this goes this week.
Any advice you may have would be great to know!
