CJ door parts

Gents, During my body off restoration, my painter "lost" all of my parts except the tub and doors. I've got everything covered but the "latch covers" (item #25, part no J575 8170-1) on the full size doors. These metal plates that are screwed the to inside of the doors. I've checked the usual spots on the internet with no luck. Short of buying new doors, anyone have a source? Thanks

Here's a place local to me where I get my hard to find parts. Good guy to deal with, reasonable prices.

Collins has repeatedly been overpriced when I've sought them out. I would follow another lead

Shoot the painter, take his money, then buy them from Collins. Problem solved!

I have to ask.

How is this even possible? How can a painter just loose customers parts?

Its not like the guy has a shop the size of New Jersey, and he can't find them, or the parts just walked
away on their own.

Is this painter a reputable guy?

Is he going to pay for the parts that he "lost"?

If so, you can use Collins Brothers if you want. You should not be out a single penny to
replace your parts. He has to know these parts are not easy to come by. And even if you can find
them, they are going to be expensive.

No firm response from Monroeville guy yet.

Story on the painter: He did good work for me in the past. I dropped the parts off just as he started a shop move. (June 13) He told me he could get to the job for a few months due to the backlog plus move. Fine by me as I didn't want to work the Jeep all summer through the TX summer heat. Started to really pester him in October. His response was The parts are at the Blaster, and he won't call me back. By December, he bumped into the Blaster at a gas station, and gave him a big WT.... Blaster had been evicted, and landlord emptied out the Blasters shop. So went my parts. Painter went on a field trip to confirm. I owed the painter 2k for the balance of the paint job. He agreed to discount my parts from the job. He held true, and only has lettering and striping left to complete. (I don't like stickers). I've got about 2k, or just over, and have all new parts except for the items not currently made. Kind of disappointed that so much of the Jeep is "new", as the Jeep was my daily driver in NYS when I was short on cash. However... rust is gone. I fired the Jeep up earlier this week. Get the 2.5 stainless exhaust welded in next week, and I'm DONE. (Will be very popular in with neighborhood test drives this weekend with just the header!)

Are you saying that he is still charging you for painting the parts that are gone because the
guy he hired to blast them got evicted and all your parts are gone now?

If that is the case, then the painter is NOT a very good guy. Its NOT your fault that
he hired people who obviously did not pay their bills, and got evicted.

Your parts a gone, and its not your fault. When you gave the painter your parts to paint, he
is then responsible for them until he hands them over to you.

I hope when you said he is discounting the price of the paint on your parts, you mean that
he is discounting the price of the paint on the tub and the other parts he did not loose on you.

I hope this all works out for you. I can just imagine how frustrating this all must be.
To turn your Jeep over to someone else, and then have it given back with pieces missing...

Thanks for the concern, and I'm square with the painter. I paid a 1k deposit on a 3k paint job. Other shops quoted 4k. Missing parts were about 2k. After the parts disappeared for the blast shop, painter took responsibility and didn't change me another dime as the loss was on his watch. Only parts missing at this point are the interior latch covers on the full doors. Jeep is done except for the exhaust. Yesterday was my maiden voyage around the neighborhood (with no pipes).

Jeep runs better than ever: 4.0 HO head, 38 Weber, Header, .050 over bore, nutter'd, 4" lift, 33's, converted YJ tub, new fenders-hood-grill-windshield frame-tail gate, Nomad rims, Corbeau seats. ...and it clears the garage door by 1". I'm as giddy as Kim Kardashian in front of a wedding planner!
