Hey all. I think many can feel my pain. Just read on. 87 Eddie Bauer found in swamp. All windows busted out, Grass 18" high in the back, Black mildew on everything, Left rear quarter crushed, Four flat's, won't start, collum shattered(stolen maybe, that'd be a yup). Hey wanna buy it. Waddaya think I said? Sure why not. $500,a winch,and a tow later from my CJ and it's in the garage. Title obtained 6 months later and it's time to get dirty. ATK 302, Front end bearings and hubs(those were fun to find), radiator, AC, X-mission and transfer case seals, U-Joints, 2 sets of rear axles(housing bent) Junkyard 9 incher with new seals, Rebuild for the collum( that was a learning experience) strip and steamclean everything inside, headliner, rear breaks, seal leaks in gas tank, new fuel sending unit, ALL new weather stripping, rebuild all window motors, glass and paint quarter panel and tailgate, bypass all the switches in tailgate, tires, stereo, heater core. Man, coulda swore I did more to it than that! One year later, I love it.
(CJ collecting quite a bit of dust outside now. Bronco's in the garage)

87 302 To much to list just to get it back on the road

If you took pics during the rebuild, post some to one of the free photo websites like webphotos or photopoint.
