I found a set of doors for my CJ at the local Pick a Part for next to nothing. Problem is they are in pretty rough shape. The part where the window frame meets the door is rusted front and back and completely broken on one of them. Is repairing this possible. I was just going to cut out all the rust, weld up what i can, fill it with bondo, and rust bullet the whole thing. But since it is in a somewhat stuctural placde do you think it would hold up? Think I should use fierglass? Basically I am just looking for ideas and suggestions. I will try to get some pics of the doors today after I get them cleaned up and stripped so te full extent of the rust can be seen.
Specs to come.
Sounds like you might be better off finding some better doors.Anything is repairable if you have the right tools and skill.Some things are just so labor intensive that it's just not worth it.I was going to pick up some cj doors myself one time,really cheap but they had the same problem as yours.The correct way to fix that would be to cut out the rust and replace it with new metal.Then you go through the task of trying to get it to where it looks decent.So now you have Doors+metal+Borrowing welder if you don't have one+labor.IMO i would hold out for something better.Unless you just wanting to beat them through the woods.
