probably a common problem to fix??

i dont know much of anything about body work but im always willing to learn or pay a professional to get it right.. so my yj has some rust and before i put my metal cloaks on the jeep i figure i need to fix the rust on the body.


ive used KBS before its amazing paint but i have a feeling a bodyshop will have to do this repair work??

thanks in advance!

I can say there is ALOT more rust than meets the eye. Just the few pics show rust through. I would bet its far worse in the body mounts under pan, chassi. If you can not do this type of work it is going to get real expensive to fix it right. Replacing parts is cheeper in most cases, than making new panels.

So depends on where you want to take this yj. I would not put to much in it. Heck i see yjs here that are very clean, about rust free. That would cost much less than putting tons of money in a Yj restore. Body work is very expensive when it gets to making filler panels, removing rotted areas.

Its a labor of love at best.

The only real way to repair rust is to cut it out and replace the metal.Even sometimes that only slows it down.But like the others said you can grind it down and use some type of rust converter on it.A lot of rust usually works its way from the inside out so it kind of hard to control..But sometimes you have to go with what you have available.The frame is a different story.If you have rust holes in the frame then you obviously have to cut it out and replace it.
