The Jeep With No Name Teardown and Rebuild (Lots of Pics)

Okay folks, we finally had a day of great weather, temperature was lowest it's been in months, so I decided to finally start the teardown on The Jeep With No Name. The plan is to restore it back to original showroom condition. I want it to look as nice as Keith460's. This build is going to take years, so be patient. I took a load of pictures today; let me know what I'm doing right, or what I could be doing smarter.

Somehow, I don't think the Delco Remy horn is original, but the windshield washer bottle is.

The lower radiator hose didn't want to go easy, so I sliced it.

First in

Frederick, after three years on my build I can say that I would never attempt a project of this magnitude again unless I had the entire vehicle sandblasted by a professional. I wasted more time and money with wire wheels, flap discs and other creations stripping metal than I have on any other part of the build. Next time I will trailer the chassis to a shop, have it stripped and take it straight home and spray it with epoxy primer. Then I would do the same with the body after taking photos of the damage that would need metal repair.

Good luck with your project!

Whoever decided to paint this engine yellow and green should be shot. Crappy 3" body lift goes bye bye too.

Proud day for me, when my little buddy asked me if he could turn a wrench, so I let him take the power steering pump off. Not quite sure if the power steering was original or not.
