CJ5 Resto-Mod Project

Yes I think a little sound deadening would be nice.

I haven't even begun to climb down the CJ-5 rabbit hole, but your era jeep might well have had a vinyl top from the factory. They had sort of a set of bows on a hinge and then a pair of steel rods framing the doors. You could 'back date' your jeep to more of an m38 A-1 type canvas top with footman loops

Older jeeps but some food for thought on the 3b page

Updates? I wish. There are only four items left on this project and I just can't get any free time to get them done.

I did get the air cleaner modified to fit around the new brake booster. I also have finally come up with a plan of how to get rid of the small spot welds that appear all over the new windshield frame we sourced from Omix. The problem is that if I left them there, it would look horrible, but welding the frame as the factory did is almost impossible. Cheap parts are almost never the solution.

The current project in the shop should be done in a few weeks, allowing me time to squeeze in the finishing touches on the CJ5 before I get started on another FJ60 E-ROD swap.

Thanks for watching and I'll post up as soon as there is progress.
