If only the POs had flipped those arm rests every time they rotated tires... none of us would have holes in them?! LOL

Did the arm rest flip - looks much better! Considered taking the material off and adding a couple new holes for the screws and pins so it could still be used as a back rest, but never have anybody in the front, so figured better to leave original. Did a little rehab on the "wood". Actually used some Minwax Espresso (new color) wood stain. Just ragged it on in the direction of the grain. You can seen from the pics, it really helps out and helps restore the looks of the faded panels. Going to get some spray poly and put a coat of clear over top to preserve it. Nice solution until I can get around to replacing it all. Also added new under hood insulation from BJs, it's a little thing, but makes the engine bay look cleaner and it's really quieter in the cab while driving - nice!.

I thought so. Really wanted the tailgate to be in great shape but it wasn't the case.
The rest of the Wagoneer was in bad shape except for the rear bench and windows..

I'll keep an eye out as well. The one at the junkyard was tan. I might be heading around that way again next weekend. Found out from the pick n pull employee that Kenosha is where the AMC factory was. He said that there are several junkyards with tons of Wagoneers and 1 yard is Jeeps only... The PROMISED LAND!!!
