All I can say is this, when your enthusiasm turns to frustration, walk away for a bit and come back to it a little while later, you are bound to do something stupid that will end up hurting you and your jeep dreams.
I started my restoration all gung ho in August. I stripped her down and started rebuilding and then winter hit in the north east and I ran low on funds. I waited out the winter stock piling parts whenever I could. Spring came and I started the work again, but it is and always was raining, not to mention it snowed a few more times.
I am not getting there with the restoration, but there have been many many things that have gotten in the way of it and it makes it tough to see the final result when there are so many obstacles.
So, keep a positive attitude, have plenty of space to work on it, make sure you have all the tools that you will need and always remember that the jobs you think that are going to be quick will take the longest, and the ones that you are scared out of your mind about will and usually to end up taking less time then you have anticipated.
Just my $.02
Here is where I am at after 150+ hours and more then 6 grand.
NOTE: The 5 grand that I have spent is not all on there yet. All the lines, the gas tank, brake parts, front end parts, some more engine parts and the rest of the steering need to go on yet.
