what kind of benefit does this provide aside from allowing the valence to be filled with mud?

One of these days I'll make a pilgrimage to Denver and see what I can find!!!

Ha! Come to SoCal and I'll take you junk yard shopping! :-)

I absolutely have no clue. The PO was a bolt on king. I still have 2 "tranny coolers" that is sitting in my junk pile. I moved them today and radiator water spilled out. Got to looking a little closer and realized the hoses are heater hoses. And there's a vent, like your attic vent, attached. I have no clue what that's all about but none of that junk is going back on. Lol! I'd have to take a pic for you guys to understand.

Took the fenders off today. More work! The body is coming off next to clean up the firewall, change the heater core, paint paint and more paint.

We took a few days off and went wheeling in my other Jeep at TDS. Saw a couple of FJS's there. Very cool!

Back at it, we're in the mode of cleaning and blowing out 42 years worth of crud from every orfice. Got the firewall stripped down and buffed out and pretty (pretty for the patina look that is).

Lifted the body and took a pressure washer to it. It needed it.

Time to neutralize the rust and put on a coat of POR-15 before undercoating the body.

Thanks! I was looking to buy a rotisserie but since I had the forklift, that's what we used. Lol!

We used a product called ZEP (similar to CLR) to help strip the rust. It's helping but it'll need more tomorrow. I can't wait to put the body back on for the final time! Gotta decide on a wiring harness here soon...

We coated the bottom of the tub with POR-15 Rust Preventative a couple of days ago and let it dry. It took 1 quart and honestly could have used more for better coverage but since we were planning on undercoating it, I didn't bother. We did get the undercoating done yesterday so it can cure over the weekend. It's looking good under there!

Looking good for a Jeep you just gonna buy and flip .. now you are attached to this and will never let it go. You'll see once you start to drive it.

Haha! I'm sure you're right. When I first got it, I was going to flip it but I'm really starting to dig this rig and I haven't even driven it yet. Had I known this, I would have put that 5.7 Hemi in that I sold......

Oh well, so on we go. Gonna drop the body on this up coming week and start on the interior stuff. I need to decide on Dynamat, Peel and Seal, Fatmat or similar. Gonna need a lot so yeah, price is a consideration.

Use Hushmat - its better than Dynamat... and glue the roof bows to the top sheet metal.. use a structural adhesive. This will reduce the boom in that large metal drum called the roof. They do unbolt btw....

Put some in the quarters, doors, etc.. it helps dampen the sheet metal down.

Thanks toddthewelder for the suggestion and of course cu4whln. I've already ordered Hushmat from an eBay vendor. Cheapest I could find. Coming from New York to Socal, it'll drive me nuts waiting for it to show up but I'm sure I'll live. Lol! Actually, there's a lot to do on the inside so this works out good.

Thanks too to Auburnmark. Just guessing, but from Auburn Ca?

Gotta order another quart of POR 15 for the inside tomorrow......
