Completed CJ7 project.

Done. Behind schedule and over budget.

Looks great! I know all about the 'behind schedule and over budget' statement. Especially the over budget part....

Looks good, tell me about this done part.... I have built 3 Jeeps and have yet to ever find 'Done', there is always something to fix or upgrade.

I wonder if someone was ever below budget and ahead of schedule.

"Done"
That's funny stuff right there. I've had the same Jeep since 1982 and "done" hasn't showed up yet!!
Nice job. Love the color. I didn't know Bestop ever made flares to fit a Jeep. They look good.

The end of a defining era.... JEEP R.I.P. 1941-1986

I see now that those front flares run along the rocker like a YJ. Thanks for the reply.

You don't drive something like that in winter in Michigan. The roads are white with salt from December through March. All that work would go to waste in a short time.






That's a gorgeous Jeep.
