1987 Jeep Wrangler Restoration/Build

About three years ago around my 14th birthday me and my dad drove and picked up a 1987 Yellow Jeep Wrangler equipped with a new 4" Pro comp lift, new 33x12.5 R 15 BFG A/Ts on Pro comp 1069 series polished wheels, new inline6, new brakes, new lights, "new" paint, stock axles, rebuilt tranny, flow-master exhaust, full doors, and a hardtop. We bought the jeep for 4500 thinking it didnt need much work and would make a great first car, here it is when we bought it

At first the jeep went to my uncles shop to be stored until i could drive it, we pulled it off the trailer into his garage and as soon as he saw the paint he took a key down the side and said "now i have to paint it," and there starts my build.. My uncle being a professional painter couldn't stand the quality of the paint the previous owner did out of his garage.. He a couple months later started the body work on my jeep.. lets just say she needed alot of work

We ended up not being able to salvage the drivers side fender, so it got replaced.. also all the grey is just a skim coat, the jeep doesnt actually have any body filler in it.. in this picture its ready for primer
