Easily found on Ebay.

Chugging along, I have been wanting to post more pics as I went, but since I only get to work on the project on Saturdays I don't always have time. Got rained out last weekend, but managed to get a few things done anyway.

Here are some pics. BTW I installed an old seat only so I could test drive and move it.















I am pretty pleased with the progress. Installing the wiring harness was pretty easy and I can't read wiring diagrams. I got rid of all the computer stuff and wires and fabricated my own engine harness with Jeephammer's diagrams. With two diagrams from John Strenk and a few from Jeephammer I got it to run first time. I don't see why the Painless harness costs so much.

Really there are five harnesses: the rear, which includes tail lights, gas sender etc.; the drivetrain, which includes the transfer case, trans. etc.; the front lighting harness; the dash and the engine harness.

Got the choke, manifold heater, oil pressure switch set up and working. Also got egr, cto, canister working.

Just thought I would mention all this stuff in case anyone is considering doing any of this, if I can do it, anyone can with a little help from the Jeepforum. So, to all those that have helped me along the way without even knowing, thanks!

Still got a lot of detail work to do and will be posting more pics as I progress.

Unbelievable progress. IMHO, one of the nicest restos I have seen. I love the look of a stock CJ and you have replicated it amazingly. Those seats you got are gonna look freaking amazing once installed!

Currently Jeepless!

I love the progress as well. BUT do yourself a HUGE favor and MOVE THAT FUEL LINE / FILTER AWAY FROM THE EXHAUST MANIFOLD. Please!!!!!! That is an engine fire waiting to happen.

Looks great! X2 on the fuel line and filter. For someone not to have much experience, you've done a wonderful job. Keep the updates coming. That thing is sure to get the babydolls looking.

What a beautiful restoration job, I do have a question about your wiper arm mounting. Did you stop them at that position or reinstall them in that position? I may be wrong but you may need to install them in the other position or when you hit you wipers for the first time you may scratch that pretty paint job. Just an observation.

Ouch! I guess I do. I'll have to flip them over this weekend. I wasn't sure, but since you mentioned I went back and looked at some pictures and sure enough. It's too bad most aftermarket parts don't come with instructions.

Thanks[/QUOTE]

Well that's it. Not worth following along anymore since you can't put the parts on the right way. Ok just kidding. Looks (fill in the blank) OUTSTANDING!

I think I hate you too. I look at your work and start getting mad how I'm not moving forward at all on my projects. HATE YOU! Ok I'm ok now. Nice work man. Nice work.
