Rusty Floorboards
« on: Jul 18, 2005, 09:51:18 AM »
i know that pretty much none of you deal with rusty floorboards, but i was wondering if you can buy replacement parts for those ?
my front two body mounts are pretty rusty, and im not the best fabricator so i didnt know if they made those sections so i wouldnt have to go through the hastle of trying to get everything back to how it was.  any info greatly appreciated

Depending on the extent of the rust and how big the holes are, you might want to consider just fiberglassing over the holes.  I did that for some holes in the driver's side footwell.  My plan is that during the rebuild I'll then coat both inside and bottom with something like Rhino-liner.  I figure that will end the rusting problems.

I glasses the holes I had under my rear seats, but I don't know about structural bodymounts...you might want some steel there.
IFS is best kept at ambient temperature in a pile of scrap in the backyard.  When kept under a functioning vehicle, it tends to greatly diminish said vehicle's offroad ability.     -reklund5
