Yj Suggestions for YJ restoration in Maine

I have a 1990 Islander with 370K miles that I am interested in restoring. I've had her 22 years and want to keep her going. She needs a new engine and some body work and who knows what else.. Does anyone have a suggestion on where to have the work done in the Maine area? Thank you!

Hi - thank you for responding. I am still interested in finding someone to take on this project. This is my primary car. She's got a 258 with 120K on it, original automatic tranny and some rust issues. I was thinking of taking a video of it to give an idea of the work that is needed. Want to get her as close to original as possible. Can I send you the video once I take it? Thanks! Jim

What kind of work do you need done and where are you located? Just did a complete frame swap on my TJ, I'm willing to help.
