one thing the pics dont really show is that i did wire wheel the heavier pitted areas and gave them a heavy coat of rust reformer before the replacement pieces were added

Awesome! You know I nearly bought a 76 DJ5 last weekend because of you- but someone else came and snatched it up!

Which rust reformer do you prefer?

Well in between t-storms I managed to weld the new piece in the a-pillar...also got some of the firewall and most of trans tunnel cleaned up and a heavy coat of rust reformer sprayed on....stripped down the new dash panel(one I had left from the 71) and gonna sand and prime tomorrow as well as the metal rings from main guage....on the down side in one of the mad dashes to get tools in from the rain my hood was forgotten...got the electronics in a bowl of rice...man I hope it still works when it drys out..if not won't be welding for a couple weeks.....
