A true feat of patience, energy, and mental illness only a handful of people will ever understand...It's beautiful. Thanks for keeping the spirit of the CJ alive....

Looking very good! Now fix that windshield and get black temp and oil gauges and you're set!!



ps.. did you paint the threshold protection on, or is that a kit?

Nice.Patience and money
Did you have to take off the brake booster to accomodate the carb?
Like the speakers.
Didn't think that DUI was that big.Hope it all works out with lots of years of service for your effort

FrnchDp.....As we all are very aware, no project is ever truly finished! Since these photos I have fixed the windshield, but I would like some black oil and temp gauges....and a full roll cage, and put TJ mirrors on it, full soft doors, lights mounted by base of windshield, shocks, sway bar disconnects, and...etc....etc....and....etc...to infinity and beyond

I was just teasing ya, Red. Hope you didn't take any offense.
I've had my CJ for over 18 yrs, and it's still not finished!

Looking forward to those updated pics!

FrnchpDp...no offense at all.....appreciate the comments....I've been on several of these forums and this one is by far the best I've ever seen; everyone here is great, helpful, and down to earth. In other words, not just Jeep people, ...CJ people!

thenewguy21......I've wheeled it some already, Stoney Lonesome Off-Road Park in Alabama. This is my first CJ so I'm getting used to what her limits are, but I'm thrilled with how it's going so far.....will update with some "dirty pics" so she will not get the reputation as a mall crawler.
