Hello,

Well, everything went well and looks great !!!

The damage is repaired, and now has been completed.
One more task off the checklist
😁😁😁 !!

I will add a little dust to match the surrounding paint, and it will all blend right together 😃😃😃

Here is an action pic :

Next area will be taping up the original exposed wiring under the hood, and then the battery box trays need blasting and restoring.
The gas tank will be a fun installation !
It still has an aroma of Pinesol
😄😄😄

I will install the NOS battery cables, and the rubber grommets today as well.

Here is a picture of an original CJ-2A seat back cushion that I got from a G503 member that had some up for sale, posted a long time back, but still had them , so I recently bought what he had, to include the rear seat spring cushions for my cj2a future project.

Since it seems there are no nos upper springs available anywhere, we are very lucky to find any original springs in good shape !!
This one is in perfect shape, still with its original darker red leatherette cover.
I will recover this seat cushion with a cover set from WeeBee.
I also have another upper military cushion that came on my 1942 Ford GPW. Both will be restored.
Nothing like good shape spring cushions in the jeep ...
Very comfortable 🙂🙂🙂🙂
The CJ2A and CJ3A used the same cushion springs as the M38 and M38A1.
