Fender Apron R&R


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks;

 

The RH (pax side) Fender Apron has had 46 years of battery acid damage.  You can imagine how bad it is.

Thankfully CJ Pony parts has a replacement apron.

 

Now then what is the best procedure to remove it?  I am sure I must remove the exterior fender but how many spot welds am I going to have to break?

 

I have a feeling this is not going to be as easy as it looks.

I am thinking 30 to 40. I just replaced mine. Below is the scrap and you can see the holes. There are some thru the top of the radiator support that need to go thru two pieces of metal. Hard to do it from the bottom. Use conductive primer on all the mating surfaces that will see welds. There are videos on youtube that I used as guidance. Also...seriously consider getting one of these. Chances are you will need it and that guy is pretty much the only source.
