    That is one nice project. I like the work you do.
    I have found some nice Willys wagons and pick ups, but not at a price I couldn't refuse. Got to get the 64 CJ and 55 A1 done first. I like the idea of making it a driver.

    Great work.

    Jeepitis is not so bad as long as you have Jeeps. Withdrawal is not pretty.

    I figure each Jeep I restore I can do faster and better assuming I finish one.

    This is getting to be more than slap some lipstick on the pig and call it a day. You have way too much time on your hands so you need to take a trip to Texas and do some work on my wagon. ????

    The carburetor was pretty gross inside, 1/2 hr in toilet bowl cleaner fixed that

    I bought a 12 volt alternator and coil to convert to 12 volt. I fabricated a bracket to hold the alternator

    Today I took the fuel pump apart to clean and get ready to rebuild

    I degreased it (this is the best degreaser I've used, sold at tractor supply) then soaked it in toilet bowl cleaner to get the crud out. Looks like new
