Operation Heroes Wish 95 Jeep Wrangler Build pic heavy

This is a Jeep I am helping build for Operation Heroes Wish, it is being built for SFC Charles Adkins' son. SFC Adkins was KIA in Afghanistan and this was bought by him off ebay to be a father son project upon his return from the deployment. We will be completely redoing it and it will be presented at Riverfest by the Mayor of Clarksville. A local Linex will be doing the inside, Maaco will be doing the paint, and SONUS Car Audio will be doing the audio in it.

Here is a local news coverage link-http://www.wsmv.com/video?autoStart=true&topVideoCatNo=default&clipId=6089519
