hello all

Well I turned 40 last month and bought my 3rd jeep ( in my life time ).
1983 cj7 258 with a automatic ( factory) . 109,876 miles . rust well rust is another issue. I started today with front floors . not as bad as I thought . but will have to break out the welder. The list of things it needs is getting very long . but I think when all is said and done I will have a nice beach jeep . as that is the main reason for project .

.
I use stop signs. Consistant materials, free, available at almost any intersection, and they all use the same socket. But that's just me!
