    I managed to roll my beloved CJ and destroyed most of the body, but It's an ill wind that blows nobody any good, so I thought I'd offer up the rolled fenders, hood, grill, etc. in case someone in a rust-prone area needs some patch panel material. It's free but you pay shipping, if you want me to cut the panel and send you a particular spot, I can do that but I'd appreciate a couple bucks to cover abrasives or whatever.
    I'm holding onto the tub until I decide if it can be salvaged.

    Thanks, I'm depressed that I was so stupid and it's not going to be cheap to put it back on the road, but the Jeep will survive. I didn't latch the hood and it came open on the freeway... yeah.
    Roll bar and seat belt - 100% sure they saved my life. A few bumps and scrapes but I'll be fine.
    I sort of wish I had the presence of mind to get a picture of it upside-down or ask the drivers who didn't hit me if they had a dash-cam, but then again, it might be better if I don't dwell on it.

    If you decide to scrap the tub I need the transmission hump between the two seats. Glad you're ok

    Thanks, indeed it can and will be. getting the bumper straight and bad front metal off was a good start, Deciding if I'm going to try to keep the tub is the next big thing.

    Reminds me of the first time after my rebuild......going down the freeway onramp....hit 50 mph....hood came up....slammed the windshield and departed....tough way to remember about hood latches. Glad you're okay. I had luck with me that day....and I was able to salvage the hood.

    Sorry to hear.
    Is the grill bent at all? If not, how much for it with shipping to 47711?
