Oh happy day!

That paint and lining of the interior of the tub is complete!! I've actually driven the jeep again! It's good to have it back under it's own power.

Though you all would like to see what I've managed to do with my 83 CJ7. I'm like a proud parent!

Of course, it's not complete, but it sure looks a LOT better than it did! Any comments would be appreciated.

Excellent job so far! Love to see pics when it's all done and put back together. I've been exactly where you are now:

Looks NICE. Now if you could just find a hood, windshield frame, and passenger seat (everybody's gonna want to ride). Seriously, looks pretty nice. Just remember you never really "finish" a CJ. BTW, what did you line the tub with? Looks really good...

LOL, actually, I do have all the other parts. The hood and windshielf frame haven't been installed yet because I am awaiting the arrival of the chromed hinges for both.

I will definatley be posting pictures of the jeep once all the goodies are put on. Of course, the tinkering never ends, I know that.

The interior was sand-blasted and Herculined. I was very happy with the results. That herculiner is as tough as nails!

I have installed the drivers seat just so I could move it around without having to man-handle it.

The interior is going to be "spice" in color, but before that goes on, the exterior will be finished. I have the Renegade rocker guards re-furbed and ready to install. That will be today. I will also be ordering the new tail lights and fender well plastics today.

Everyone says that the "big hump" in restoring any vehicle is the paint job, now I know what they are talking about. It took to two tries to get the paint the way I wanted it, but it's SHINY now!

Of course, I couldn't help but take it for a quick spin once I got the seat in, even if it isn't street legal. What gets me is that ALL the squeaks are gone!! I'd better stop patting myself on the back before I break my neck. hehe..
