78 CJ5 Couldn't Let it Die

A friend of mine called me right around xmas. He knew my passion for classics cars. He also remembered a 1969 Nissan Patrol I'd brought back to life a couple yrs back. Today i work 60+ hrs a wk and have 3 children. Regardless, I went to look- just look. Well... I bought a 78 CJ5 pretty muched trashed from end to end- 4 speed w/ AMC 360. The trani has issues, the motor smokes, a couple body panels need to be addressed, floor pans replaced, the entire steering column has to be replaced,the tops is ripped and the interior is trashed, but its a 78 cj5-they ain't making any more.
I don't have the time. Here's my question. Can anyone give me a good contact here in the upstate of SC that could assit. I'm not in any big hurry-I just need HELP. Thank you in advance. myfulmer@gmail.com
