48 willys cj2a rebuild

Tore down my 48. Gonna fix, clean and paint everything then put it back together the way it's supposed to be. I've had it for 24 years and finally decided to tear it down and rebuild it right instead of half-a$$in it.

She won't be ugly when I get done with her. Seemed fitting to give a 65 year old jeep a face lift.
