Sucks working on a budget while owning a jeep. I sold my last truck and sled to get mine. Quite worth it to be honest. Almost killed myself on the yahama 600cc was the last straw and the mazda pickup with just rear wheel drive was pissing me off too much during winter. Needed a reliable vehicle to get me from point a to b without the worry...

Well, like I said... The body man I go to is awesome. To order new steel fenders and have them shipped up and then properly installed/painted would cost me 2x more then what I'm paying. My brother in law had some work done to his old 80's Ford 150 and the paint job still looks awesome over 15 years later. If the guy did shotty work, he wouldnt be in business anymore.

Thanx everyone
My front steel fenders (on the top) are rusting thru, so I'm biting the bullet and paying a pro to fix both, which he will remove all the rust and re-weld a plate on top, then prime and paint and undercoat the fenders with rockguard to prevent this from happening again. He did a quarter panel for a previous truck about 2 years ago and did an awesome job. Cost for my TJ will be about 400$.

Now, if your situation is just surface rust and not penetrated then IMO remove as much of the rust as you possibly can, use a solvent to clean up the area, treat the area with anti-rust chems(POR-15??) and then prime and paint. I've done this process ONLY for surface rust myself on a few vehicles I owned and it has held up. BUT make sure you do your prep job as good as you can... Thats where its at...

I'm sure someone will tell you a different way to go about it, but this process works for me.
