Like the title says 1st time possible buyer of CJ there is one in town with the 304 for $800. The outside of it looks decent, the inside is really rusted up on it. I noticed behind the drivers door the flat metal that goes from the door frame to the wheelwell/tub is totally seperated.
I have owned a YJ and a TJ (this was my FAV 35's, 4.0, 5 spd) but gone are the days I can just go out and get a big fancy loan and buy whatever car I want, I had knee surgery and will be selling my 78 Yamaha XS650 to fund this purchase. I bought the bike only about 2 months ago, but since the knee surgery I am afraid of it. I am worried I may really mess my self up good next time. My father always told me when you start to fear a bike someone is telling you something. I just wanna sell it now. I have ridden for 18 years I am 30 now with a 8 year old at home.
Sorry to run on about the bike,
I just wanna give a little back ground info I guess. The issue is how hard would it be to fix this rust, I can weld good, I have some very light metal working skills.
What other things should I look for on this? Any problem spots that can't be fixed with some patience? I am not even for sure if it runs or the year of it. I know kinda vague now that I think about it, but I have typed quite abit so too late to turn back now.
I am a Jeep head, my first time in a Jeep was a friends dad's CJ5 that he took me and my bro down the river during a summer of drought. Ohh man that was the coolest ever since then I have been hooked.
If someone could just point me in the right directions to look at on this I would be great.
Ohh I guess I should add it has a hard top in decent shape, and I will get pics tomorrow of it. It has been sitting a while I guess, maybe I can wheel and deal with him.
