Fiberglass the Body

My 68' CJ5 has some rusted areas, namely the Driver and passenger floorboard, rear floor pannel, and some fender damage. I was thinking about welding the fender and glassing the floors, and/or replacing pannels. Has anyone done this or does anyone have any better option. Thanks

I had some rust issues and eventually went with a fiberglass tub, so if you have the cash, get a tub, or get the warrior diamond plate floorboard kit, here is what mine looks like now.

If there isn't huge holes in the tub I would recommend using Monstaliner to line the tub. I have fiberglassed a a few surf boards and its very difficult if you've never done it before. Monstaliner is fairly cheap and will last a long time... The first thing I did when I bought my Jeep was take the carpet out and line it
