So I'm formally the kind of guy who'd put away his car for the winter and drive a beater, however, Just purchased a TJ last night. there no rust on the body, but there is a little surface rust underneath. So this weekend I'm going to be undercoating it to prevent it from getting worst. So I'll be using an angle grinder, wire cup brush, rust converter/primer, undercoating, some kind of degreaser/cleaner.
Am I missing anything? Any advice to a complete noob who has no experience undercoating.
yeah... I've been wanting to do that too... but I don't have a garage and would have to either do most of it at a buddies house or in the street.
may have to wait till spring to piss off my home owners assoc. sneak in and do part by part at night.
are there shops that do this kind of work for reasonable prices?
Springs... all I can think of is sand blast with a tarp around the back maybe? Just a thought.
Did you consider unbolting the 11 body mounts and jacking up one side at a time to get to the top of the frame? If so, I'd make damn sure you only loosen one side and remove the front one and 5 on the other side. I was thinking maybe I'd shove some 4 X 4 blocks between the frame and body to hold it up. Anyone have experience with this? I don't want that sucker falling on my hands, or anyone else's for that matter!
