Please post pictures!!

Honestly, I'm 6 months into a restoration and hitting the wall hard. I am in desperate need of some inspiration. So if you all wouldn't mind posting pictures of custom/ unique things you have done to your ride, or hell even if it's a rust bucket I want to see it. I need ideas. Sound systems/ interior, engine compartment, body, ALL OF IT.

do a search for Build threads and you'll get plenty of pictures and ideas and motivation!

Or maybe share pictures of what you've done to your CJ so others have a better idea at suggestions to make.

hey man,
i know what you are going through..took me about 6 years to build my jeep. The build survived the birth of my 2 girls and a house move...
Hang in there and take your time!!
it will be worth it in the end!!

Don't look at it as one big project.

Break it down into many small projects. Example the dash is a big project, break it down into installing the gauges, installing the radio, wiring the dash. A day or two on each small project and they are completed. Complete all the small projects and the big one is done before you know it (an kind of like a surprise when you realize there are no more small projects and it is time to move on to another one)

That way you get the satisfaction of completing the small projects and you will close in on completing the big project.

I know what youíre going through, between my mustang that you can kind of see in the back ground to my jeep it can get nerve racking. I just installed my rebuilt 258 got the cam broken in and had to pull the engine for reasons I caused. I have not touched my jeep in 2 weeks because of frustration. I think Iím ready to get back at it, so keep you head up.

later

Good advice from Glenn, one bite at a time. Just finished my front winch mount set up.

Here is a highly random selection of photos. I've been working on this for a little over two years and since I don't know where you're at in your project this may or may not apply but once you reach a point where you're putting stuff back on things typically get a lot more exciting. At least that is how it was for me

I feel your pain, I went from this




To this in just over a year










I'm at the point now that I can start putting it all back together!!

And thinking through those steps is daunting...brakes, axles, steering, body mounts, fuel deliver and return, WIRING (yyuck), roll cage, seats and belts, and then to get it to pass smog here in CA.


But, I've got inspiration:
