$200 to repair rusted body mount??????

I have a rusted body mount and it has to be fixed to get inspected (so the local Exxon said) so I took it by the body shop today and the estimate was $200. Is there anything else I can do?

I did the whole set of body mounts on my CJ in a few hours, and the set was around $80.
Where's yours rusted?

Forget the Body shop and take it to a Welding shop. They should be much cheaper. Or,, lets see,, Home Depot has some cool Mig welders for around that price. I bought my first one used for 100.00.

LS1CJ5, that's an awesome idea. I didnt even think about that. Hey does LS1 mean LS1 engine in your CJ? Impressive. Id like to hear the other specs. Thanks too.

your welcome for the idea. That's a good way to justify all those new tools. Then your friends might pay you to weld on a bumper or body mount. Ok, specs on my CJ5, I bought a 99 Vette LS1, it's drive by wire with cruise control. AC soon to be hooked up. Custom fenderwell exit headers with chrome Hooker side pipes. Dana 44 widetrack in back and a widetrack front axle being rebuilt. It's a 1979 with the tan Levi package. I'm not sure if the original owner made it a fake Golden eagle or not, but it had gold spoke wheels, the full gauge option and the Eagle on the hood. I went with a system from Master power brakes, all new SS brake lines. Oh yes, a Clark 5sp, a 240lb 7 to 1 first gear,, rock. It's primer black at the moment. 4 months into my repower project. It snowballed. All of those "while I'm in there".

One more thing, As a Tool the welder ranks right up there with the Chain saw. It's one of those tools that you want even if you have no use for it. At Home Depot you'll always see a guy or 2 hanging around the Manly tools.
