Help Fixing Body rust Damage

I have an 82 CJ7 with very very bad rust damage to the body. The back hatch on the hard top had cracked around the window frame and has leaked water in over the years. It has rusted out most of the floor board and all along both sides of the body. How should I go about fixing this.... bare in mind i'm a newbie to all this so be specific please.

Thanks a lot

Buy a used welder. Welding is like a disease that you just can't stop doing, something breaks just weld it.

If you want to tackle the task of reparing the tub, its stimple, 1, for the interior areas, check out jcwhitney, you can get replacement panels cheap.. and the other areas jus get some sheet metal, cut to fit.. and u dont have to weld em.. its actually better to pop rivet them.. tis how i repair all mah bad spots..
