Amazing work, and no, you didn't mess up with the decals. They really set it off in my opinion!!

Thanks again guys, here is a pic of my dad in the early 80's with the green jeep in the background. My dad hated having his picture taken and my grandmother threatened him with his life to get it. Just so happened the green jeep was in the background.

Here is a pic of me when I was just a squirt and my little brother in 1986 with my first deer. Man, was I lucky! Sorry for the blood, but people weren't as squimish back then. You can't even ride with one visible now. Hope it doesn't offend anyone.

Here is one more old photo. It was taken in around 1977. That's me on the with the deer on the hood. My dad, mom and little brother are behind the Jeep.
I was about 15 in the photo above and 5 or 6 in this one. Thanks CJHouch for this idea. Hopefully in another week or two I can post a pic of the Jeep now with my family.

That's cool. Thanks for sharing. Perhaps I'm a little crazy but I fell in love with cars and trucks at a very young age. They are a personal reflection on their owners and each one has a history and a story. Your jeep is on my list of favorites. Again thanks for sharing.

Greg

My last post was before I saw the last two pictures. Those are awesome. Your jeep is part of the family for sure. Look forward to the picture of your family with it.

Looks like it had a Warn 8274 winch on it. If so and you still have it there are some good threads and other Internet sites on restoring them.

God rest your dad's soul. He is smiling in Heaven.

Is that a 7 point buck ? Did you make loads of deer jerky and eat it all up real fast ?

I am the same way Greg. Growing up around the shop, I was around cars all growing up. Old Camaro's, Chevelle's and all kinds of hotrods. I still have the winch and was undecided on restoring it, but your comments have gotten me to thinking I may tackle it when I get it finished with the Jeep. I am not sure if it's any better than the new ones today, but someone told me it pull like a mule and was stronger than the new ones. I have no idea. It was used a lot. I do know that! One neat thing about the pictures is I couldn't get mad about the dents in the hood 'cause I helped put them in there! haha!

The wheels are 17" Black Rock Vipers. They actually weren't my first choice, but I am happy I picked them in the end and they weren't as expensive as some of the other ones I looked at. That is partly why I got them.

8 pointer DeafJeep! We didn't make jerky back then! Minute steaks and burger meat! My grandmother could make deer steak, bisquits and gravy that would make you want to slap 'yo momma! haha!

CSP, I hope they hold up the way I did them. I couldn't find anyone around here that could bend 16ga. sheet metal so I scored them as lightly as I could with a cutoff wheel. This made a seam so I could clamp it down on a table and bend them. I bent the seam to the inside where it would be like two 45's making a 90. It was the best idea I could come up with for what I had. They looked good. Just hope they don't crack later. i don't think they will because I used a big fender washer so the pressure would be all the way across the channel when I put the bolts through them. That may sound easy, but them suckers were still hard to bend! It took some time and hammer too! I can't make nothing fit right without a hammer!!!!!!!!
