The patches should be easy to make since the repair areas are flat. My local retail outlets no longer stock 18ga steel, so I use 16ga which is .010" thicker. FYI if you ever need to bend sheet metal...

So far, so good. The floor support under the roll bar foot looks to be in good shape. At the passenger seat seat, maybe check the thickness of the floor around your cut. The original floor is 18GA...

Yes Vermont is getting hammered tonight. Fish is about 50-60 miles northeast of me and his area will probably get a foot of new snow.

Remounted my tub to the frame last night, now with shiny new...

Same technique that I've used here- drilling the rubber gives you a fighting chance to press or pound the rubber bushing out together with the center tube. The rubber bushing is wrapped in a thin...

I think a silicone sealant would be safe and effective on the repair. RTV is commonly used to tack things down on circuit boards anyway. The HumiSeal is applied as a liquid, I believe. We use it...

Well then you've developed a very good and useful method for getting access to those caps. The coating must be softer and thinner than what I had imagined. You might check out HumiSeal(tm) as a...

Ok you've got a good panel to work with. Classic does make nice stuff. Before cutting it, go practice welding on scrap material to get your settings and technique "dialed in". Keep at it until...

Yes on the driver's side that corner of the floor is hard to reach from underneath. Inboard from the frame, that's where the brake & fuel hardlines bend up over the parking brake cable bracket. ...

The OEM transmission cushions do fail. Mine separated after 20 years and 92K miles. But the intended function of those loose bushings is a mystery to me.

Looks like you caught it before the rust got into the door pillar. If the floor support rail is solid and the step riser rust cleans up easily, then you'll have only the floor to repair. If the riser...

Wow, you removed the potting compound with a rotary wire brush? You're much braver than I.

That's a nice-looking YJ. The rear frame ends are a common rust/rot area. The repair is not difficult and involves cutting back to good metal then welding on some repair plates. These plates are...
