I just assembeled pieces, you built something that most of us would not have dared to try. How hard is it to get parts in Turkiye?

Did you paint the Jeep in the shop there or do you have a paint booth?

well actually you can get any parts you want but prices are very expensive.i mean, something $30 in USA , i am paying about $70-80 here.sometime i order online according to the size of the part.i wasn't very sure about the cutting CJ5's frame and extend it to make it a CJ7 frame.i searched about 6-7 months for a CJ7 frame but unfortunately no more than 10 original CJ7s in Turkey.so US Incirlik Air Base to the rescue.I found one from the junkyard. i felt like i found gold
my friend has a paint shop so i painted there.

That looks amazing. Did you sand your hardtop smooth or just paint it glossy? It, along with the rest of the jeep, looks incredible
