    3. Driver's floorboard almost gone due to rust through. I've been working at cleaning out the shards of metal before I form, cut out, and weld in a new piece of metal. Passenger side floor is rusted through but not as bad and can be patched up. I'll be using a project called POR-15 (Paint Over Rust) as future rust prevention. Supposed to be awesome stuff.

    It is ...

    I found the same in my renovation 4 years ago.
    I also removed the rollbars, but didnt have to have welding.
    I used 50 year silicon caulk in between the body and rollbar when I reassembled. (after removing rust and coating with por-15, then used enough caulk to squeeze out any penetration by water)
    Then I used rust/rubber spray paint to prevent future nicks around the base of rollbar.

    Since I knew I was going all out, I also purchased a cage/rollbar attachment kit. I now have a rollcage.
    ( Cuz, ... just think about it ... If you rollover .. theres only the windshield frame to save your head.)

    You should check the window hinges.
    Mine were rusted thru.

    The easiest way to check it is to release the bolts and tilt it forward onto the hood.
    A real pain in the ass, but, if your rollbar and seats are out, you should be able to replace it easier. Be sure to order a new window seal while your at it.

    Check front A frames too.

        Dave,

        Our roll cage extends to the top of the windshield so we have a bit more than just the mid-roll bar. But I know there is a more substantial roll cage available.

        What are the A frames?

          I mean check the upper frame for the shock mounts.
          Look for rust around the welds or cracks.
          (Where that upper meets the frame)
          I had my local garage reinforce the welds, since he was also welding the rollcage frame brackets anyway.

            On May 19th, a Guinness World Record attempt for the 'fastest 100 miles on a unicycle,' to raise funds for the first children's circus of Afghanistan, with whom I'll be working this summer.

            Does anyone know how fast he went, or how much money he raised??? If need be, do you suppose he could use the money to bail himself out of GITMO or Abu Graib??

                        well?
                        now will u believe me that i'm not an AOL kiddy?

                        i mentioned the fun weekend i had with a friend up from cape town in a private communication i trust u received?
                        after the fun evening out on friday, i arrived home at about 04h00 on saturday and woke up around 09h00
                        not feeling like the whole box of Smarties
                        i sent an SMS (text message in some parts of the world) to aforementioned friend with the simple salutation 'Yo'
                        i received a reply at about 11h00 and phoned said friend, jokingly asking how impressive it was that i could actually spell 'Oi' at 09h00
                        it was only after loud and prolonged laughter from friend that i realised what i'd said/done

                        there it is, the Yo-Oy/Oi episode
                        riveting, wasn't it?

                          Yes, I got the private communication. I guess you had to be there, but sounds like a good chuckle between friends.
