How do I get behind this?

Im herculining my interior, and I noticed that the support that the front of the front seats bolt to is open, as in water and dirt can get in, but I cant get behind it with a brush or roller. so can anyone enlighten me on how I do this part?

I was am planning on doing this this weekend so any help would be appreciated.

thanks

itry putting some liquid pipe sealer on the threads of the bolt before you put the seat bolt back in, that should seal up the threads enough where water wont get in.

Re: How do I get behind this?

Ill have to get a pic of it. I have taken the seats out. Its like a upside down V with a flat top. Im not worried about water going in the threads. there are big open holes In the side and top, but not big enough to get the herc behind it?

Ill get a pic asap.

You could just fill it with expanding foam insulation.

Re: How do I get behind this?

heres a pic of the part in talking about




its welded to the floor so I cant take it off. I might do the foam but that wont stop rust from forming, will it? there's no rust in there yet that I can see, but there is a fair amount of dirt from when I sank my jeep, and started this fiasco.

Re: How do I get behind this?

this is an old pic I found from a week or two ago when I riped out the carpet. its alot cleaner in there now. I opted for this pic as my seats are now back in because this is my DD. and I dont think my GF would like to be made to sit in the back. also its rainning really bad by me right now and Id rather not go out and take the seat out to get a pic.

I've often wonderd the same thing and you think that bothers you, look under the carpet of an MJ, the whole back section of the floorpan is under crossmembers. If you're concerned about it, you could always drill the spotwelds out, paint under it and reweld it or bolt it back in.

Re: How do I get behind this?

Id have to bolt it in because the liner would be in the way of the weld. do you think that would make it un safe in case of a serious on road accident? or ruin the integrity of the unibody?

Or you could grind just a line back down and weld it in, or just clean out where the holes you drilled were and fill those with weld. If it gives you any idea on the structural though, pre-95 XJs didn't even have that brace. It was added to accomodate a different style seat slider base. I would think either method would work fine, but if you can weld them back in that would be the best method all around I would say. Good luck!

Re: How do I get behind this?

Hmm glad I don't have the silly hump in my Jeep. I just herculined the interior of my Jeep last week...only needed some silicon to fill some bolt holes and JB weld to fix some body/floor board cracks from things hitting me.

Re: How do I get behind this?

I simply made sure the area was clean, sprayed rustoleom in there and made sure i had drains for it. If you are sure there is no rust in there fill it with foam and line over it
