Hello all, I am new to posting but have been reading posts/threads for a few months now...I love this forum...
So here goes, I have dove head first into a frame up restoration of a 1974 CJ5 jeep with a AMC 304 V8 engine. Due to my lack of experience and highly qualified-willing Father-in-Law, I am getting him to do the initial work for me. (He's awesome)
Phase 1 plans: Repair and repaint frame and body, Front Power Disc brake conversion, rebuild rear drum brakes, new Tilt Steering column, repair worn drive components, repair engine (smoke's alittle right now), new roll cage, repair wiring and new gauges, new audio system, new seats, new wheels and tires...i'm sure there's more but that's all that comes to mind right now.
Here's a link to my progress photos http://s41.photobucket.com/user/jdli...0CJ5%20Restore
Please pore on the advise and pictures of stuff you guys/gals have done to your Jeeps that can relate. I love learning from others and getting ideals from people who have already been there and learned hard lessons.
Thanks in Advance,
