It's a labor of love, that's for sure, and thank you! I always loved these things. I was more interested in the GW (and still want one for my non-existent, but officially started now jeep-hoard), but this one was a right place right time sort of deal. Parts are tough to find though. Tougher than for a GW I'm finding.

It's been at the body shop since November, which has been really good for us. Not being in a rush, and getting to do a lot of the work ourselves (like prep stuff) has been a good learning experience, and has saved us a LOT of what would've been a really big bill. It's still a big bill, but not what it was.

The other side should be painted this week, and the floorpan will likely be replaced before or right after. After that, it comes home and I start picking through it.

I need to figure out where the heck to begin. There's a big part of me that just wants to start rebuilding the whole thing, wiring and all. It's still a huge project, but definitely snatched from the jaws of death.

I'm really happy to have found this community. Up until this point I've always been a Wrangler guy. Had a 1990, and have a 2013 now. Had a 2000 XJ and 2004 WJ for work purposes, but those are long gone now. But just goes to show you, Jeeps are in the blood I suppose. Doesn't matter what kind. Why else would someone (or many someones) spend this kind of time and money on an old pile like this, LOL.

Some paint progress pictures! The roof is all straightened out now, hail damage removed. Passenger side is painted now. Is it wrong to kind of dig the white top and hood with the blue?

It'll all be the same color eventually!


Ordered some sound deadening material for the inside as well. Should be here today I think.
