I know I bought a lot of parts from you guys over the last 3 years I have been working on my jeep. I got it on the road 11/21/2009. As with all jeeps, it’s never really finished but it was good enough to drive to the inspection station and get it licensed.
I got this jeep from my father’s collection of “Junk” in Montana. While bringing it home on the trailer I got lots of questions. One of which stands out. “Wouldn’t it be easier to buy a new one” I had to turn and walk away from this poor sole. For those who believe no explanation is necessary, For those who don’t no explanation will suffice.
I learned a lot while doing a full frame off restoration on this jeep. Built my own rotisserie for the body and did all the work myself. I did have the frame sandblasted and painted. For a very reasonable price, but when I called back to have the body sandblasted the price was no longer reasonable. I was able to buy all the equipment to do the job myself and still came in under the quoted price for just the tub. I also set up a paint booth and painted myself. I found a color that was very close to the original.
The technical info:
David Day / Deer Park, WA / 1951 CJ3A / color was luzon red, both the body and the windshield frame. Serial number is 451-GB1 25364.
