junkyard fiberglass tub, Should I or should I not ?
I am about to start the resotoration of my 80 cj 5. Im new to jeep restoration so I dont have much experience on cjs. I was walking thru the jeep section this morning at our local u pull it, and happened upon a cj5 about the same vintage, that had a, from what i can tell, a pretty solid fiberglass tub. Is it adviseable to even considering using a junkyard tub ? what should I look for or be careful about or what to avoid. The owner said he thought they de let it go for 200 bucks. jeep is still pretty much complete so it would be a bit of a chore to tear down. Jeep has been exposed to weather for a bit so im not sure if thats an issue. What drew me over to this vehicle was the one piece full soft doors. still intact. This a good idea ?
