Justin331 yup, the 3pm down pours are no joke! Sunday was a beach day for me so no worky on the jeepy and of course the weather was awesome all day. Today was no different I got started and by 2 it started and didn't stop for 3 hrs
I was able to get some stuff done so it wasn't a total waste...cut some more areas behind the roll bar and 2 more pieces on the floor. After the rain got to do a little welding too. Here some pics of the cuts didn't get pic of the welding because it was dark already.

Mowrangler The rain down here really sucks. Every time I try to do anything it starts raining. Looks like you are going about it the right way. Keep up the good work.
08-31-2013 03:59 PM
Justin331 I figure id update the thread since its been pouring rain for the last 2 hours! I was able to grind and cut a couple of areas that needed attention. Early on I thought I only had 2 spots but after tearing into it we found a few more. I'll post a few pics of what Iv'e done so far and later update this with the pics of all the metel patching. Hopefully it will stop raining soon so I can get back on it!
