rusty tub

Well I took up the crappy carper to find rust. The first owner would leave the top down in the rain with the drain plugs in. The good news is it's only suface rust.What should I do just clean it up and paint it? Bedliner?

I've used this stuff before and it worked good for me. Used this as the primer on a 85 Ranger that I brought from Minnesota and then Painted the floorboards over it.

Dude, you have to Herculine the inside of your tub. I just did mine and it looks amazing. I still have yo get pictures up, but it will make your rust bucket look brand new!

And it only cost about $100 for everything you need. After you lay that down, you will never have to worry about rust inside your jeep ever again.

BTW - it rained for the first time with the new liner down. After I popped the drain plugs, it took all of 3 1/2 minutes for it to dry in the sunshine. PERFECT!
