Dan I would tell you not to try to repair a rusty CJ body any one that trys to repair it will find that there is nothing to repair those old CJ bodies rot even worse than Toyota boxes.

^^ this is true.
just wheel the shit out of it, until there's nothing left... then perhaps buy a new aluminum or fibrglass tub, or work a YJ tub on there.
I'm just going to wheel the hell out of mine, maybe fibreglass a piece here or there to steer away from getting a VI... probably never get around to replacing the body.

it is not mine and i did tell her it was really not worth trying to catch up on the rust....
i would not repair it my self i already have a yj i got to patch
seriously though my idea of body work is a hammer and snips or cutting wheel
thx for the info..

Thatís what Iím doing. I patched all the holes with fiberglass. It worked great! The problem with mine is the body mounts are rotten.
Iím now recycling the old CJ jeep into a Whore J
I would say patch what you can till it falls off and repeat till dead

what do you use to 'back' the hole while working on it? It looks as if the previous owner of my jeep used some sort of aluminum tape as well - anyone seen that before?
Basically, anyone got any tips on how to fill some holes using fiberglass? How did you go about it Kevin?
I just helped a buddy fix some holes in his canoe, and thought, hey, this is pretty easy.. should try this on my jeep - but wondering if theres any tips/tricks you guys have learned...
