CJ2a Restoration advice


I have gotten the best help and advice from you guys on here. I am again starting another project. This time I found and bought a 1946 Willys. It is a great little flattie. I have some new fenders and tail gate ect. I am however in for a big undertaking. The body has rusted pans in the rear mainly, and the engine that has been converted to a 12v is going to need to be gone through. My plan is going to be to take the body off, and go through the engine/tans/ t case/ and frame. I would really to just start off with an engine rebuild. I think I dont want to mess around too much and just replace gaskets seals, pistons, ect. My question is this. Are there things I need to be concerned about when taking it apart, or can I really go at it like I did my cherokee? Also are there any things I would want to avoid, like don't fix it if it isn't broken? I would appreciate any insight or help.

I will get pics asap and keep them coming as I go.

PS I am also open to upgrade... Lift, cage, ect.

Thanks again!
