Need some advice

Hey guys, I'm new so if I make any forum mistakes I apologize in advance. I recently got a 1999 TJ Sport and a few weeks ago I lifted the carpet to see how the floorboard condition was. It all looked promising until I reached the front to see a massive hole rusting in on the diver's side and the passenger side has surface rust. I have a buddy of mine who will fix the hole by patching it over and welding it but here comes the main reason I'm posting this. I want to pull my carpet and get the entire interior bed lined. My problem is that I have no experience stripping paint or lining so here's the question:

Should I do it myself? Or get it done. I know getting it done can run around $500 but I want it done right. Any suggestions?

Thank you.

Do a search. There is a couple of good how to threads. Then you can judge for yourself if you can or want to tackle the job.

However long it takes to get the seats, console & carpet out, $125 for a Herculiner kit at NAPA, sandpaper and/or Scotch-Brite to rough up the paint & metal that was welded in, lint-free cloths and lacquer thinner to get all the dust off, and an hour or 2 on both Saturday & Sunday to apply 2 coats of Herculiner with 24 hours drying time in between.
