    Looks fantastic sir! What year is it? It is my understanding earlier Willys CJ5 windshields were body color but Kaiser CJ5 windshields were all black. You paint it whatever you prefer (y)

    Love it...black window frame is my choice with black top. Some other color top might prefer body color.

    , I'VE heard enough. Black is my plan. Couldn't imagine any other color. But it's true, newer Jeeps do match body color. Thanks. Btw - it is a 70 with dauntless and 4.88. Already have OD. Will install it after body and all else is finished. The color is supposed to be the autumn wheat. It was used in 58 waggys and panels. Doesn't look dark enough - actual vs picture? Anyway, I wanted a buckskin color. Looks like I'll have to be a hotdog in a mustard Jeep.

    That is one sharp looking jeep. With a dauntless, 4.88's and OD, it ought to be as good as it looks.(y)

    Thanks everyone. Should have painted it orange. It already has the peel. That one that sold on eBay for roughly $6000 is like mine except mine runs (I think -I'VE only driven it around the block to hear the gears.). Rebuild for a dauntless is around $2500. I bought it for. $1250 and have about half as much in it as the eBay one. And, that one will need $$$ spent on it too. So I think I did ok. Especially with the white wheels.

    I'm partial to the contrast of the black windshield frame.

    Really nice looking Jeep Lee! I'd do the black windshield frame as well.

    I went to the local junkyard/Disneyland (my kids think the junkyard is Disneyland...shhhhh, don't tell them!) And sourced a power steering pump, pulleys and brackets from a Skylark with power steering. I have a power Saginaw box from a Jeep, so it appears Farm Jeep Willy will have some nice floaty steering soon. I also scored a spare driver side rear dump manifold for the Dauntless.

    Oh, and the kids and I also installed a 1970s era style antenna and a self contained radio, with speakers and all. Saw it on this site first!

    I got the rest of the wiring harness ran and added some turn signals. Actually they are back up lights from Local parts store and swapped clear bulbs for amber.

    Th n I took it for my first legal drive. Drove over o neighbors that lent me the double axle trailer to bring it home in August. Then drove to the gas station and back home. All in all a successful voyage. But I noticed there is an annoying noise coming from the transmission, I think. It happens at higher RPM, I let off the gas it goes away. Not sure if it is the clutch bearing or something else.

    How was the wiring harness to install? If you could do it over again would you buy the same one again or would you spend extra on an actual Painless or Walcks harness? You can’t beat the price of your harness...
