CJ-3A, Can/Should I Attempt a Restoration?
My family acquired a CJ-3A about 3 years ago. It's been very badly neglected, I don't think there's one part on the entire vehicle that hasn't been kissed by extreme amounts of rust. And I believe the engine is seized. I have a fairly large budget to work with. However, I don't have too much experience with this kind of work. Seeing as I need something to keep me busy, I'm seriously considering taking-on this project. Of course, I'll have to seek professional help when I run into something I just can't handle. Basically, I would like to do a complete restoration and keep the thing entirely stock.
So, I guess what I need to know is:
Should I attempt such a project?
If you believe I should, how should I go about it? Is there anyone in the community that has attempted such a restoration and can supply me with the names of companies that can sell me parts AND/OR would be able to give me some pictures taken along their road to restoration.
Thanks for the information,
