    OK, so I picked up th his gem last December 16 and set out to refresh her. Thought I would add some after pics. I owned a 70 CJ5 just like this one 30 years ago and always regreted selling it, thus this one was located. I wanted to make jt a near mirror image of myold favorite Jeep. I have owned several, but none beat this drivetrain package. So, here are someafter pics. Maybe next year will start with a frame off, but for now, pure fun!!

    Lee..... You did a great Job in a short amount of time ! IMO, Your 'Desert Sand ' color is starting to come out & show too!
    It's not " Mustard " at all, especially from me being raised around French's Mustard Corp. , LoL
    Any way.... Take some Pride , Sir I think you deserve it. :bow:

    Here's a pic of the tire. I was told they were made by a bigger company but I don't remember which one. I chose them for the tread. (but isn't it the white rims that steal the show?) lol Thanks CAM00528-1.jpg

    With all the orange peel it ended up with, I may start calling it my lemon. My friends say I need to keep a package of butterscotch candy in it.

    No, no one is. The spirit of the thread is show pics of your Jeep and side conversations are to be expected.
