CJ is done!...well, driveable. (pic\'s)

Hi all, I finaly got the windshield put in and was able to drive the Jeep to work today WOO-HOOOOOOO! I still have some things to finish up (sport bar install, modify the defroster duct, heater switch, etc.) but it's driveable! Here are a couple pics.

That's a nice Jeep Mike. Wish my ;83 CJ-7 looked that good. You're makin' me ready to tear it apart again and get a decent paint job on it! [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: CJ is done!...well, driveable. (pic\'s)

Thanks guys! The pic's of the paint color don't do it justice. In the front shot pic it looks like the color goes from bright orange to a yellow, and that's really what it does in the bright sun. Kind of a flip-flop paint without spending the money on pearl!
Go to http://www.geocities.com/m1a_sniper/jeeprebuild.html for the progress pics from the day I tore it apart.

Re: CJ is done!...well, driveable. (pic\'s)

ssswwweeeeeeeettt! i love orange! i can't wait to get my orange beast on the trail again. it won't be long. i finally got the new vortec 350 running and have a few little things to take care of this weekend when i get some time off. then the first of next week exhaust and then i'm ready! i can't wait. i've been down for over 3 months now. anyway i really like the orange and only wish mine still looked that good but paint and trees, rocks, rolling, etc don't mix! ha! post some more pic's when the sun isn't reflecting off of it so bad.
