Charlies 1981 CJ5 Restoration

I have been working on this for a while now, bought it three years ago with a rough running 358, and worn out drivetrain. I built a chevy 355 for it, rebuilt the t176, swapped a dana 44 in the rear with 373 gears and a limited slip. I will add pictures of that part at a later date. I plan to keep it stock appearing, no lift, and 31 inch tires, I love the classic jeep look. Here it is last summer

Started to repair the rust yesterday, this was my first time welding sheetmetal, I think it came out okay. Its going to take a little bit of filler to make it perfect but that is ok with me, I knew I was not going to be a pro on the first try.

Started on the floorpan also, did not get pics of the finished product because my phone died.

Nice looking rig! I sure like the color combination.

Make sure you take lots of pics.
