Will take a week or so get put on, need to do some cutting and make some new fender flares landscape edging I hear is cheap lol.

Pulled the carpet and rotting/molding underlay out still need to pull seats and console to get it all out so i can have the floorboards welded up for the weekend.

Is it still solid at least? If it is hit it with rust converter for a few days then wire wheel it and hit it with more rust converter, then paint the floor, my cj floor was rusted to shit but the converter worked great

certainly aint pretty but I didn't bring my friend a very easy job,required some silicone sealing where weld blew through but it's not going to leak!!

here's a bigger problem,pulled more carpet to to find this! No time left in the day to cut out donor panels so i did a driveway ghetto seal of mesh tape and a generous amount of gravel guard

Here I was making sure there were going to be no leaks around the welds!

Holes in the floorboards are good, they may let water in but they also let it out :D

When you swamp it and water comes in through the doors, it sucks driving with big puddles in your fully sealed floorboards

We left the factory drain plugs in I added some extra silicone when they went back but if need be they will pull out easily to drain. In the end I will replace the the factory plugs with grommets something like the fill hole of a dana 35 rear end kinda thing[cheers]
