A Frame Off Restoration

Buttoned Up for the Winter

Once again as the weather changed and the day job took priority we suspended work on the jeep until the Spring. We didn’t get quite as far along this season as we hoped, but progress was made. The goal was to have the jeep on the road, running by August 2014. It was not to be.

Phase II Restore

With the easy part behind us it' was time to start restoring or replacing parts. This took the longest time because each piece had to be cleaned, inspected, refurbished or replaced. It was fun to learn about each component and gratifying to see each part repaired and ready to install.
