Re: tub repair

Well I would say if you have no body shop experience and you gonna try it then have fun but if ya want it to look half ass good don't try it [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Or just seal up the holes till summer and buy a new tub!!!

Re: tub repair

If you don't want to weld it, you could use some POR putty, depending on how big the holes are.

Re: tub repair

I can tell you from personal experience that I'm living through right now, if you don't know how to do body work or don't enjoy it, buy a whole new tub. My friend is helping me replace sheet metal on my CJ, but for the $500 or so dollars I saved (replaced a lot of metal), I wish I'd just bought a tub. I do not like body work!

Re: tub repair

I'm with the others. If you don't have much experience with body work, and if you have a lot of patch work to do, don't do it! Body work can be a biotch depending on experience. How bad is the tub? BIG holes? Or just lots of small ones? Bondo it baby!!! [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: tub repair

I went through the same debate about 3 months ago. Body work and new panels was really just a band-aide to the bigger problem ofr me. If the rust is really bad, think about a YJ tup swap.
