I bought a 1987 Wrangler that came with a running 2.5L, 5 sp, working tcase, new metal fenders, new seats, but a very poorly made gate less fiberglass replacement body. None of the assembly was complete and the body was just resting, not fastened to, on the frame. After taking the body off and examining it in detail there are areas where it is so thin it is translucent. I am not comfortable using this body as this project will become a daily driver rather than just a trail unit. So, I'm looking for open and honest suggestions from anyone experienced with fiberglass body replacements.
I know I could sell the body and then find a steel body somewhere but I do like never having to worry about rust. However I'm more concerned about having a body that is so weak it becomes a safety concern. I suppose I could reinforce the areas that are so thin but there are so many weak areas and so much that will have to be reinforced to support a roll cage, seat belts, etc. that I don't know if I'm better off trying or replacing. Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated. I'm not on a real schedule but I do hope to finish this in a year or less.
