This jeep was so badly abused and neglected before I got it makes feel like I'm playing catch up with all the repairs and such
. The new project after the motor re and re was to fill in the rust as best I can so below is a before during and after process of sealing the rear quarters.
After cutting as much of the rust out of the Pass rear outer quarter panels this is what was left from the inside looking out.
This is a rough cut in
This is how it sits now, inside looking out
Outside looking up
Also re sealed the inner/outer fender seams while I was at it
Now we move over to the drivers rear quarter from the inside out,this represented a challenge because of the gas filler tube and took some creative trimming to seal up
Outside looking up,"rough in"
Inside looking out,still more work to do here
Still lots more to go on the rear quarters,once more pop rivets are installed and the urethane sealer dries all of this will receive a healthy coat of rubber undercoating including the inside of the fenders to cut down some road noise. Its not very pretty to look at but once its all back filled with the undercoating and the outer quarters re closed it won't be visible at all. I also don't have alot to work with which explains all the rivets and sealer but it's a start and a definite improvement over it's previous look. More pics to follow..........
