I was wondering what happened to you! If you look at my build thread, you'll see that I unfortunately had to abandon the restoration of the jeep with no name; I am currently on my way to Las Cruces to go pick up the High Plains drifter, another 1976 CJ five however this one isn't fully running condition and is almost flawless.

Yep, still around -just not relevant! (to the CJ side of things at least)

Running out of shop space, and time to turn any wrenches. Much like you, I knew there was no way to put enough into my Jeep (Jeepster) to get it reliable enough to be able to enjoy- which is the point, right?

Ending up solving my long running issues of 5 ppl vs. 4 seats with a new JK unlimited.

Now back to that little green gem of yours...

Even from here, I can tell you

A little polish on that patina, a set of 2.5" springs and new shoes, and you're good-to-go!

Congrats Fred, I look forward to following along as you write this chapter of your (Jeep) life.

It's hard to say no to yoo-hoo, the name literally beckons...

Don't mind me, I'm just another FNG around here...

I don't think it's an acme. My acme doesn't look like that. Check this thread

I'm still new to the CJ5 scene so maybe there's an easy answer?..
Not for a 1975 CJ5 but an interesting pic of how the windows in the hardtops for the Willys CJ's worked

The Meyer/Orville tops were "modern" at least. I have a standard window crank, and the window rolls all the way up and down, allowing me to pay tolls, and use drive-ups.

The doors latch to the top though, so you normally could not use it with a bikini. I've thought about it before. Normally, I'll keep the heavy top off all summer, then throw on a bikini when it rains. But I'd like to have doors for the rainy days as well.

I think I could rig a latch like the soft-doors use, that bolts to the body. But then I could probobly just pick up some soft-doors for the summer as well. That would be better.....except the soft-doors use a different hinge system then the Meyer doors.
