BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

This is the one I just saved from going to the junkyard....

It will be a slow process getting it to look good again. Yours is beautiful.

Re: BUILD: My 1987 "Wagoneer" XJ Limited

Your Waggy XJ is looking awesome! I also noticed the Grand Wagoneer in one of your other pictures. Got any more pics of that?

I'd love to someday restore a Classic Jeep and daily drive it. I'd rather spend the money and time on an awesome looking and well-built vehicle compared to the expensive pieces of junk they sell these days. New cars cost $40+ grand and only last 5 years before they need expensive repairs.

Thank you for looking. The GW has a build at http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=143870 and there are a number of photos near the end of the build that show Delilah after she was finished. Here's the most recent:

Thanks for asking! The Summer months don't allow me time to work on the XJ. But come Fall... I'll be back!

Cool! I guess your intention is not to sell it when you're done? Why should you after all the work...? :-) Let me know otherwise, I'll buy it in a heartbeat!!!

Tried-and-True Merchants

Re-starting my winter project...

Below are merchants I've used with great success:

1) http://www.glassrestorationinc.com/how-to-find-us.php I sent my driver's door glass (you know the one that always gets scratched)... Deep scratches gone... Looks like new and I preserved to have all matching glass logos/etching.

2) http://atlantahydroimaging.com/ Woodgrain-wrapping - Professional, good-communicators, flexible on changes/modifications.

3) http://www.julianos.com/seat_belts.html Sent my old worn-out seat-belts/buttons/casings... Came back all-matching like new!

I'm interested in what sensors are used and a way to make them work for my XJ

There are sensors that interface to each of the components (engine-coolant, washer-fluid, etc.,). For me now that the display and (blue) interface-box are installed... I will need to source each of the sensors, then connect them to the blue-box/display as per the enclosed wiring-diagram.

I've seen on of those clock sensor read outs once in a junk yard almost ten years ago, it was a 86 with a 2.8 and California emissions so it had a computer I though that clock/display ran through.
It had some other cool stuff I grabbed, still have the limited leather/cloth rear seats in my 85 Xj, which is a Waggoner but I always the people Cherokee because it confused with the big Waggoner at the parts counter.

Hey Since it looks like you have the factory gauges I was wondering if you've seen the problem the printed circuit for the gauges failing and peeling away ?

I ended up upgrading to the newer style cluster because of it. I tried to find a replacement printed circuit but there were none left in the jeep inventory any where. Every used cluster I've ever found around here had a failing printed circuit too.
