Rebuilding / Restoring 1984 CJ7

Bought an 84 CJ7 last friday and have started to tear her down. There are some rust holes in the floor pans and some holes on the exterior body. Ill post some pics when I get back from class. All suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

The tail lights look interesting. A lot of people will tell you the front bumper will need to be replaced with some steel option depending on where and how hard you end up wheeling this. Might need some seats too. I had bestop tall replacement in my cj that were awesome and waterproof. I and a friend pulled some cavalier seats from a junkyard for about $40 to swap into his YJ years ago and we reused his slider/tilt brackets.

Does the frame have any rust? How are the bushing on all the leaf spring hangers? Any leaks from the drivetrain components?

O, and those wheels are awesome!

What are your plans for the overall build? Bring it back to like new? Trail rig?

Well the plan is to get it to a daily driver. Im not looking for it to be a showroom jeep. I wanna fix up the floor and body so its safe to drive. Frame is solid and drivetrain doesnt seem to be leaking any, just needs some tuning up and new parts. I have seats that came out of it that are sitting in my garage, they just need to be reupholstered and maybe some new brackets.
