It's all part of the prep work.

I can't wait to take this thing off some sweet jumps again.

i like the old winches. They are cool looking, not pretty just functional.

Looks good!

Honestly, there's not much point in putting a nice paint job on it. The tree branches and nasty Mounds mud are hell on paint (and windshields) anyway. The goal is to make it more reliable for a trip to Rocks & Valleys or Silver Lake this summer.

You did good! But I have to ask this question... if you have a pit in your garage, why'd you leave it in a field for 20 years?? I wish I was a mechanic!

To make a short story long, my dad gave up on Jeeps and switched to trucks and hot rods.They all sat out back forever and wouldn't sell them. Years later the township was on his ***,so he scrapped a 65ish and a 72 with a steel top like mine. I said many bad words to him, and told him he'd better not scrap the 74 that we rebuilt when I was young. So we bartered, and I literally drug it from his yard to mine. Here's some pics from the Grayling run after I got it going.

I agree with the paint can paint job... Did the same to mine and it is holding up just as well if not better and don't want to make it look to nice...especially when it looks better covered in dirt and mud anyway...
