Bought an 81 CJ7 with carpet and never knew the rust situation. I grinded down the three layers of paint and found the brown electricoat. There was minimal rust. Hand sanded to smoothness. Painted POR-15. Then did some body filler work and the primed lightly with Rustoleum primer. See pics below. Next step is Monstaliner in spice color.
Relieved that I understand the rust situation and that it wasn’t so bad. Happy to have that old smell out of my CJ with old seats and carpet. Almost there.

More work on my hard doors. The stud that.goes in the bottom of the vent window was broken . The stud has a flat on it , which I drilled out and put a cotter pin through to keep the stud up in the glass enough now that it was broke
I also put the vent window back in , which kinda sucked but I got it in . One of the glasd rail clips popped out so now I need a new one of a rare part. I'd like to know if the parts store has them . It's the regulator rail plastic clip
Replacing the weather stripping on this hard door turned out to be a hard pain in the butt that doesnt work out very well . What the hell.

|C.Honeycutt||Started pulling out my transfer case to rebuild it. Have a BW 1339 with part-time kit and overdrive. Hopefully whatever is wrong I can still buy parts for. 🤞🏻|

Fuel Pump went out on Thursday, hoping Novak is quick with the turn around and a new one is on my door step when I get home.
While the tank was out I used the time to prep the rear end for the body shop, plan is to fix the dent I put in it about a year ago and to fill in the old tire swing holes.
Unfortunately while all this was opened up I was able to spot some frame rust on the rear driver side. I guess pulling that trail does add a bit of stress on the old girl. Those issue will be addressed as well.

|Fourtrail||Glad to see that your outer didn't fracture like mine did and take out the spindle as well. Looks like you have the better factory inners that don't neck down like some.|

You warned me the outers were a weak spot.
Id love to just get a full set of chromos and super joints and be done with it, but after the new tires and wheels, the piggy bank is about empty for awhile.
Ill probably go the route you suggested for now, then upgrade inners when i can.

|skizriz||Grenaded my 30 spline outer. Darn near split it down the middle it twisted so far. Got spare parts to get it back together for now, while I shop for an upgrade to chromos.|
