Yes beautiful jeep. I like that navy color.
And the jeep was in very good shape before the restoration.

Thank you friends.

Yves, no the jeep looks like was in good shape! Under the paint was full of surprises. I Had to replace rear panel, left and right panels, and rear floor.

The chassi was with Cj 3 shock absorber brackets, the restoration was a Pandora Box, every step had a demon.

See the pictures.

But at the and of a had work, now he is rooling nicelly and is a pleasery to drive on the roads and highways, besides some problems to me, I am 6`5" tall.

Best wishes
