No biggie, I found two on ePay that will work, but I really do appreciate your offer.
Sorry, Bud. I didn't notice that.

Yeah, there's nothing there for the CJ-5, but I do like the site.

Transmission on the BMW went T.U....$1800-$3000, so I decided to order a Christmas present for Brooke.

What can I say, she jingles my bells!

Got my first original Black Wellington Vinyl seat.....zero rips or wear....this thing must have been pulled out right of the CJ, after it was purchased.

Should get the 2nd seat tomorrow, hopefully.

Here's a pic. I spent about 1/2 hr. cleaning it up, because you could tell that it had been in storage for quite a while, but it cleaned up real nice.

Are you sure that's for a 76? Looks like it belongs in a 78

THAT CAR! Oh mannnn. Cameros are one of my very favorite cars. My first car was a '69. Heck of a gift Bud. The Jeep seat looks VERY good. No dry rot?

Hey Fred, just spent the past 4 hrs reading all 56 pages and have learned a ton. I just started restoring a 79 cj a couple weeks ago and just got the tub off. I will definitely be keeping up with ur build, good luck!
