02-26-2008 01:54 AM The Paint Shop
After all the headaches in the body shop, now the jeep is in the paintshop.

Before going to the paint shop, I pulled out the engine and tranny for rebuild and modifications.

Well the AMC 304 is not going back in again. I found an AMC 360 and planning to make modification for a better output.

After interrior, underbody, and engine compartment paint is finished, and the body is primered I'll be taking the jeep back to the mechanic shop again ( it's just across the street) for mechanical works which have to be done.
After dropping in the engine, we'll then go back to the paint shop for the rest of the process...

The chassis and under body have been washed, and cleaned with fine sand paper, and will be soon waxed and rust/dent proofed.

The seats were also original, but needed to be refurbished.
So I had them opened up, and renewed.

Now the body is being worked on.
The rust taken off, and a lot of welding, cutting, etc.

This took me 3 ******* months...

It's unbelievable, how this car made it till now.
It seems that no body cared about the body of this poor Jeep.

It's an advantage when you buy a car with the original paint on, but not after 30 years.

Fortunately the interiror parts where all there and in pretty good condition. I just had to renew the seat covers, door pannels, window handle, and weatherstrips.

Well the Tach, and the Clock didn't work that well either. So I had to order them from quadratec.

02-10-2008 03:14 AM Jeep Cj-7 Renegade before restoration
This is a 1977 Cj-7 Renegade with V8 and Automatic Tranny.

These are the first days I got the car, and prior to it's body work.
It will be stripped now to go to the body shop.

This will be the first time the car is going to be painted. Actually the car had mostly it's original paint on, but with a lot of rust and dents.

I took of the fiberglass roof top which is in very good condition. No cracks, mint cond.
