Cheap 98 daily driver build

So itís been a long time since I posted on this thread. I bought the Jeep and got all of the interior out to evaluate the rust damage and got a game plan for how I was going to fix it. Then life happened and it got put on the back burner. I just stared working on it again a couple of days ago and got one floor cut out. Got to looking at the passenger floor pan closer and found rust holes under the seat bracket along with the other holes and decided to go ahead and replace it as well. Ordered the pan and got the bracket out and need to cut the pan out probably tomorrow. Here are some pictures of where Iím at now.

How much overlap between the old pan and the new one should I leave? I am going to use panel adhesive and rivets for convenience and was thinking around 2Ē? Iím glad to finally be working on it again and am ready to have the floors fixed lol. Saving the seat brackets was super annoying. Thanks in advance!

Cheap 98 daily driver build

Well I finally got both floor pans in, got the chassis saver down, and got the bedliner on. It was a pain and I will have black specked hands and arms for a while but super happy with the results. I decided to put the large floor pan plugs back in from the bottom and seam seal them along with the under side of the pans. They look weird if put in from the top. I am waiting for the paint on the plugs to dry and will put them in tomorrow. I will also be putting all the trim back in tomorrow as well. Got them all cleaned up today so the inside of the Jeep should be clean tomorrow. Does anyone know what the small 2 pin plug under the console goes to? It has been to long since I pulled it apart to remember if it was plugged into something or not. Thanks!

Driver's side seat belt buzzer maybe?

Well decided to get my headliner in today instead of my seats and console due to deciding it would be much easier with nothing in the way. Definitely the way to go. Looks and smells a lot better lol. Havenít decided if I am going to paint the lights and speaker grills black or leave them multicolored. What do yíall think? My seats are completely disassembled and un-upholstered so I could clean the nasty suckers. Reassembling those comes tomorrow!

Are you putting the old seat covers back on, or replacing them? The reason I ask is that I've been looking at replacement covers for my '99 Limited because the DS seat bottom is pretty torn up. So if you're replacing the covers I'd be curious to know where you found them and how well they fit.

Yah I got the stock ones cleaned up great besides the usual rip in the drivers side vinyl. I am going to put them back on and may look into some quality covers in the future. I wasnít able to find any that were decent priced that looked like they fit well.

Exactly my experience. And I really don’t want to spend $200 for a full set when I really only need one seat bottom cover.

I’m going to pull the DS seat out of the rig today and take the seat bottom to an auto upholstery shop to get an estimate. Without paying the extra labor to have them deal with installed seats, maybe the cost’ll be reasonable. And my rig, though street-legal, is only used for wheeling, so I don’t care a whole lot if the seat bottoms don’t exactly match the backs.
