    Yah that’s the problem with all these social media situations... one has to be very careful what they say. Big b, I assume thought he was just talkin with buddy’s when he made the comment your referring to. If you look at the CE hats they are a bit generic for many yrs of cj and for mass producing purposes. Hard for people to keep those factors in mind. Really if you want a 100% proper job you must do it yourself... and usually being a perfectionist is not profitable :(

    I think I got the same deal on the rear floor as you did. If I recall, the front floor was around $540 US.

    When I get to that point I'm totally prepared to have to make modifications/adjustments. But I'm already thinking of how to do them.

    Well I finally got around to removing the welded on panel from the passenger side. There is some metal underneath, but not much. Decision needs to be made on how to approach rebuilding the side? Cut/fit/weld or buy full body panel?

    I agree with sternclan, it's all flat sheetmetal there, should be pretty straightforward.

    Can you use the piece you cut off to patch or is it too thin?

    The piece I cut out is pretty rusty on the inside as it wasn't sealed well at the bottom. It's also not large enough to have the proper bend at the bottom. Still contemplating the solution.
