    I did some early morning scrounging and found the nice set of cutlass hubs I used to have on Ted back when he was all stock. I think this cj5 needs them.

    I'd keep the patina and build a super reliable sleeper.

    The original wiring is in real nice shape

    The original hood catch is still intact and works

    Ted is the only other jeep that I have seen that still rocks the hand wiper.

    [​IMG]

    The windshield lollipops still have the zinc plating as well as the windshield latches.

    [​IMG]

    Under the body still has the original silver paint

    The dash has no extra PO added holes!

    [​IMG]

    And it still has the original floor drains with the original thumb screws!

    That’s what I plan on doing. Just make it a nice driver. I don’t want to modify it because something this original and clean is hard to find.
