Hey my fellow jeepers a great idea hit me today while working on my jeeps frame!!! If you dont know im rebuilding my jeep from the body tub to the frame not one part of my jeep has not been touched.
but the main thing im focusing on is the frame and my idea of how to get inside the frame rails to prevent it from rusting out like my old frame did (AKA) why im redoing my jeep and its been a pain in the butt for sure
in other news i have herd to use expansion foam, just spray paint down the rails, use eastwood frame coating, just leave it, weld the factory holes... so on and so forth well im on a tight budget and i want this thing to last i love my jeep so much i never want to see this happen again so here is the idea
While working on my jeep i thought well what if i seal the holes with duct tape and then fill it up with... some kind of a tar
(wow did he say tar) yes i did! now before you all go saying well why not use rhino lining instead of a asphalt tar? well that would work to the theory is if you lift your frame up on the rear end and block all the holes in the frame with tape of some kind and then get a 5 gallon pale of WHAT EVER KIND OF TAR/PAINT!!! and dump it down the frame to were it fills both rails. now yes you would do this 2 times for each rail... then when she soaks in and you think its coated in there nice pull the tape or sealer off and let it drain out. Now i know your thinking this will make a huge mess yes so do it some were that you dont mind tar/paint getting every were. But the theory is with tar in the rails water, dirt, mud what ever will not rot the inside of the frame rails hell the outside paint should go before the tar does right???
Now im planing on doing this what i will use idk this thread is not debating product would work better its about the idea. now i know there is someone out there thats going to say oh blah blah blah thats dumb... well everyone has their own opinion what ever. But please tell me what you think of this idea the main thing is that it will coat the inside sooo dang good because it will get top bottom both sides of the rails and tar is amazing verses water dirt and all that stuff that will kill your frame.
Well thanks for looking at the thread im curious of all your opinions to this idea. I also dont see anything on the internet with this idea so hey maybe it will work who knows??? so leave me a comment on this and let me know how you feel about this THANKS ALL and keep on JEEPING!!!
