All I would say is you need to take your time. I just got done building one.

Mine has rust issues in the floor and floor supports. Did you have to do much with rust when you did your jeep.

A lot redid all the floor pans and all the area under the doors but other than that not much just a little in the back quarters. The old full roll cage rusted the floor pans

Yeah mine sounds the same. Old roll cage rotted out at the base and the floor pans. The rear quarters look to be in food shape surprisingly. Did you just patch the pans or did you replace the whole pan.
