this is under the roll bar on the driver side if I should you the before picture it would make a little more sense. There was a huge gaping hole were metal used to be. Water had been collecting under the rollbar pillar where it attaches behind the seat and not draining anywhere.

It is probably worth cutting a drain hole near the seatbelt bolt to let water out.

Just my .02 cents

If you look closely when the YJ was made the roll bar hoop was installed before paint. Every one I have taken apart is the same.

Grind it out treat it, prime it paint it and yes a drain hole for future water which is a given for a Jeep.

I did not know that but it does make some sense. Makes me ask the question why in the heck would they do that other than to match the paint and do it all at once.
