Yes my bj8 also had about 6 larger holes plugged with rubber bungs, they had
kind of melted when I pulled them out. We reused the holes as well as drilling
extras to inject waxoyl after the chassis was repaired.> From:

Holes in Frame Rails> > Speaking of holes, my BJ8 has a few (apparently)
factory-installed holes in the frame rails. These would make sense for
drainage, but they're (supposed to be) plugged with rubber plugs. But, our BN2
does not have these holes--anyone know why? BMC's idea of a chassis lightening
program? Do others' BJX cars have them (could be someone drilled them, but
they look "factory")?> > > bs> > -->
