Just got my 4" x 4" x 1/4" steel today for my rockers, and I will be starting this project tonight. /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif

What is the best way to protect against rust in the back against the tub? There is little-to-no rust there now. I have sanded and primed whatever little there was around the YJ side step bolt holes.

I was thinking of using that rubberized undercoating stuff when I bolted them up, or just leaving them with nothing, and squirting a boatload of WD-40 down there every so often to help keep the rust at bay.

Any thoughts on this one? I should finish them up over the long weekend. /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif They are already cut to 4 foot lengths. I just need to add the holes, and sand and paint.

Thanks for your ideas.
I did search the archives, because I know we've talked about this a lot lately, but didn't find much adressing this specifically. /wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif

OK, thanks guys! /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif I will stay away from the undercoating stuff, paint them real good, and seal the holes with sealant. That way I can remove them too if I want to check for rust.

Lined them up last night, looks good - should start marking and drilling holes on Wednesday night.

....man, whoever bargained for this work 5 days get 2 off did a lousy job. /wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif
