Re: please help!

elijah,
I was looking at my other samurai's lack of rocker "rust" panels and had an idea.

the part where you go from the door down and it starts to be flat.
anyway, cut it from fender to fender and then underneath cut it fender to fender.
then go down to a metal place and pick up some 3 inch by 3 inch square tubing and have a friend
or you weld it in place of where your old rocker panels used to be...
so now you have your rocker panels back and their beefy all in 1 shot.
make sure you paint it with some rust guard stuff.

Re: please help!

that's actually a really good idea!... i've seen something similar to that, and for even more beef they took more tubing and welded in crossmembers to the frame. i really like that idea. and i've had no luck finding any parts for the truck also. i could use the ones on my parts sammi, but i might one day want to build that truck up as well. it's body is still in good shape! actually, everything but the engine is in good shape. i guess it's not much of a parts truck, more of a project in waiting!
anywayz, thanks

Re: please help!

If you do the welding with the 3x3 tube, you might want to drill several holes along the bottom.
Water WILL get in reguardless of what you do, and it needs a way to air out and drain out
otherwise rust will grow real fast....
