Hey guys I just purchased some fabtech steel rear corners. The reason is, my jeeps right rear corner under the taillight has that typical rust spot. I was trying to fix it today and found out the rust hole went all the way through. This hole is about the size of a golf ball and it's going to be a big pain to replace because I cannot get sheet metal behind to weld in place. So what I did was grind out all of the loose, rusted spots and primed/painted all of the bare metal. I plan on using these body armor rear corners for structural strength and to cover up this nasty hole.
Now onto my questions..
Anyone that has these or similar rear corners that require drilling into the body, how difficult was the install? Are there any tips or tricks you used to make sure they corners were cleanly installed?
I'm REALLY hesitant about drilling into my jeep's body.
I realize I could have gone with the plastic or similar rear corners that use the 3M adhesive, but I really would like to have something stronger that will last a long time.
Thanks for the advice!
