I am planning on tearing into my jeep this winter and doing a full frame off, clean and paint everything and make it look good again job. I am trying to figure out if I need to buy some new fenders. I have a line on a pair of OEM that are in awesome shape that I will prob buy soon.
My question is this: My fenders have rusted where the 2 parts were bonded/spotwelded together. Even though one of them looks OK, you can still tell there is a considerable amount of rust between the 2 sheets because of the rust stains. Is there any way to prevent this when I go to repaint the jeep? any thin liquid coating that can be washed down between the 2 to make them not rust or stop rust in that area? Here are the pics of my fenders. I know the passenger side would require more work than its worth, but the driver isnt that terrible in my mind.
It was a pretty poor design seeing how theres no way to get paint in there to prevent rust. these things probably started rusting in that spot on the showroom floor.
