here once again its update time...lol....
this one focuses on more stupid cancer and in a yucky place too...i had been putting it off cuz i new it was gonna be a total pain but i guess it turned out ok not like anyones gonna see it anyway...lol
so here goes....
front clip removed again...lol
some pics of the rusty cowl-to-firewall pinch seam/driprail..
just some floorboard rust will get to it later...lol
temporary backing plate to make sure nothing moved during cutting...this is held on with sheetmtal screws to both cowl and firewall, and by loosening the screws it allowed me to use backing plate as a clamp to get new pieces in tight
after cutting rust away
you can see the screws...lol
first piece in ...i left it alittle long so i could get thee lip right
second piece going in...i spotted up all the little cuts...it wasnt any fun..this piece has 2 90deg bends as well as the swoop...uugghhh
a shot from inside the cowl...you can see the welds penetrating thru...
finished product...took 5 pieces and about 6 hrs to fix that area and i know its not pretty but a piece of mat and quick coat of glass and i could make it dissapear but why its a 41 year old service jeep thats finally gonna get its day in the woods it deserves its battle scars ...hehehehe
a little more filling a little grinding and a quick swipe of seam sealer and we all good...lol.......
