Hello John,

you're quite right!!


I give this nickname: "Maïté" (it's the name of a well known (in France) old big fat lady who do amazing recipe : ) :

WARNING: explicit content: animal has been killed!


Maïté is the right brune lady!!!

Like my CJ, she is big/strong and fat, need always fat/oil (grease), and makes me laughing a lot.
I'm feeling good every time a taste her recipe... Same thing when I drive my CJ !!!
Finally; as shown on the footage, she is afraid of anything ! like... my CJ

Regards,

Some update...

Xmas Time !!

I need some garland !!!

So I've started to rebuild the engine harness...



The unique PO has done some ugly things



Which are easily removed...



Mainly the harness is in very good condition no rip no crack...

all I have to do is to clean it ...

So first I remove the looms...



And I discovered some ugly factory things: (5 ugly crippings protected with tape)





on left wire are hand + water cleaned.. on right not cleaned...





Which I've removed...





...welded...



and protected with right stuff...



So I 've cleaned step by step all the wires... ( I've identified all of them
with the CJ7 Diesel FSM : MR 239) (If you want to see the whole restoration of the harness it's on French Jeep Jeep Jeep Hourra forum )





And I finished with the firewall which contains parckard 56 and packard 59 connectors



All the pin will be replaced... For now , I've found (and bought) Parckard 56...



I've found too parckard 59... but they don't ship to France... so I'm looking for a bypass/walkaround..

The PO has removed (badly) the underhood light (ORANGE) wire...



.... to be continued...

So I've remove the male packard 56 of underhood light:



come on baby ...



Yes: It's a packard 56 connector (well protected)



Of course the male connector to the light connector is missing... here female connector (GM 2962448) with his mercury switch on the other side



I've found the male connector shield (GM 2962984) >>> HERE <<<< (BTW Great catalog... this ref can be found on ebay)

I've bought and waiting for them soon...

FYI this protections match TOO with packard 56



Of course I've replaced the battery wires too: with as factory like wires... heeellloooo Ffursday !!!



And replaced ALL the loom with new ones:



there are 3 kinds of looms:







To be continued...

And ..Merry Chrismas!

Regards,

Gilles

Sorry for my VERY LATE answer, Guyz... due to BIG FAMILY ISSUE (I don't want to say more)

The project was hibernating during this time... but I'm back!

@benullman : Very THANKS for your Proposal !!!
but It's allready shipped, may be next time !!!!

@Flynes: I found my male Packard 59 connectors >>> HERE <<<

Now, I'm looking for the rubbers for tire carrier, glovebox... and so on...
May be, may I ask some help because I don't found site which ship to France

I've received some used OEM pieces like the ligths dash panel: (mine was very crappy (left one)):
Chromes parts will go to a chrome plate maker...




Here the engine harness completly rebuild on my own:
Some wires has been replaced by new one (same section/color of course : It was a PITA to find them) but mainly the harness was in good condition so I only clean them...
Every firewall connectors has been replaced by Packard 56 connectors (I'm waiting for the 59 connectors but they will arrive soon), and of course looms are NEW.
The old brackets has been cleaned to and : tada!!!



The rear harness is quite finished!... and I will do the dashboard harness (like ALWAYS OEM of course!!)

Stay connected...

Regards,

Gilles

So project was in idle for 3 months...

The Body strikes BACK! :

the body work is quite finished, as you can see every pieces has been fixed ... NOTHING has been replaced!!!

The Grill must be fixed because the PO have done a very bad harness for his winch ... then a bad connected wire weld the grill:





the inner grill quite finished (like OEM , 3 sheets on metal)



The hardtop back door rips has been fixed too :



The door has been fixed rips, punchs and so on :





Fender has been fixed too...

I remove the EUROPEAN turn signal and position ligths "warts" of the fender : they are TOO ugly and
unprotected when you're offroading (BUT I keep them : they're very RARE),
Note the front side markers has been replaced in the EUROPEAN version by "4 wheel drive"

I will put again the turn signal at his original position in the grill,and the position lights (like the GERMAN version) in the Headlight (EUROPEAN Hella model (2 bulbs)
instead of EUROPEAN Marshall model (1 bulb) )...





some fenders details...







the punches on the tailgate due to a tire carrier not correctly hang (this is my fault) has been fixed too



a group pictures: a well organized bodyshop



The bodyworkers do a AWESOME work...

My dog is SO TIRED to see them working :



Coming next the hood and the dashboard... and then passivation bath (quite sure next monday) to remove the 20 months rust

Stay connected...

regards...

Gilles

The body work is finished since yesterday !!!


here some pictures

close up (quite difficult to take picture) of reinforcement of the rip of the door (disease of the doors)

the patch is an "L" between the inside of the door and the link with the metalic external part of the door ..



welds in the interior grill are cleaned



and the edges of the engine hood were "light" fix ( IMHO filler/mastic/putter would be fine...
but my body worker doesn't work like this! Thanks again for his professionalism (very rare nowadays)





That's all folks!

Monday is passivation .... and return Wednesday after passivation / zinc spray in bodyshop for primer !!!

Stay connected!

Regards,

Gilles

Gilles,
When you welded up the crack in the upper inside door area that is very common on CJ's. Did you reinforce behind it? If not, then it will reappear soon.

Might be worth your effort to take permanent care of it now IMO.

Very nice work overall.

Hello BioTex,

Thanks!

I've forgotten to write it: Of course, reinforcement door has been done: that's why the patch zone is larger than the crack...

Regards,

Gilles

This is REAL TIME !, this morning (monday)

All the body pieces are gone to passivation in order to remove the "light" rust... (in french we are talking about "rust flower...")
I'm very lucky to live in country which is VERY DRY...

Here the result of 20 months without protection... not bad at all...



Everything is put gently in a basket...



and then diped in acid...



the hood has special attention/care...



Tomorrow passivation will be done...

next step zinc spray and primer! !!

stay connected...

Regards,

Gilles
