    How does that roof rack secure to the hardtop?

    Any details or pictures would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I have a yakima 1A raingutter system off a 90s full size van, I believe they are 66" crossbars
    It clamps around the raingutter which is a little thin, it needs a metal L channel to reinforce the gutter. (I haven't gained ambition to grind off and replace 32 bolts)
    my road bike is fine up there but a beach cruiser adds noticeable body roll when taking turns.
    sway bars are on the mind and bracing between the rollbar, roof, and crossbars would be ideal if carrying anything else

    [​IMG] I really like the rack, and customer service with yakima is great

    Thanks a lot for the detailed response and pictures, I really appreciate it!

    I have owned a few different yakima roof racks set-up for various vehicles over the years, and I agree - they're great!

    My first attempt at rebuilding, I say go big or go home, so what could be easier than a frame up restoration! 1969 CJ-5, PO did some welding of his own, and I think swapped the original 225 for a 231. I am pulling the engine today and should be able to determine for sure what I have!

    Nice project. If you are going to resurrect the body I highly recommend doing a search on this site for "Tommy B's Rotisserie". I built one for my tub and don't see how I could have done all the bodywork by myself without it. Also get a couple of spot weld cutters (remover) from Harbor Freight. One of the few good quality tools they have. It will make taking body panels apart much easier and I'd say from the pics you are going to be taking more than a few apart. Enjoy the build and post lots of pics.

    I actually have trashed the body and plan on buying a complete metal body from kaiser willys auto supply. It was way to rusted to do anything with, and its worth 11 cents a pound at the salvage shop!!
    Took the engine out today and discovered it is a later model 231, not the 225 the VIN says I should have. The project continues....

    It did look pretty much like scrap. But you'd be surprised at what some of the guys on this site have been able to do with rust buckets like that. :)

    I have seen some pictures and am very impressed, but for me: "A man's got to know his limitations"!

    Looks great! Looks like the hood lines up well with the fenders too.

    There's an incline to the drive. It does however, lean to the left.
