Frame up rebuild of a 1978 CJ-5

I've been working for several months on a frame up rebuild of a non-running 1978 CJ-5 that I rescued from the desert. I've been making detailed daily writeups of the process with a plethora of photos, and thought some of you might find it interesting/useful to read some of what I've gone through in this most satisfying endeavor. You can find the writeups at:

Happy jeeping!

Nice job. Some of it won't apply to my CJ5 ('67), but I will be following along.
