new member from texas

hello everyone,
i have recently purchased my first jeep project. 1975 cj5
i have looked at it for the past year on the company's property next to were i work. well i finally ran into the owner a few weeks ago and asked him about it. He said that they had bought it from a guy that was on their deer lease. they drove it around and loaded it on the trailer. got it back to houston for some repairs and couldnt get it started. so it sat outside for the last year going to waste and if i wanted it make him an offer. well he liked my offer of $500.00 and i pulled it to my house (had a tow bar already on it and i live a mile down the road). well that weekend i couldnt wait to get started on it. first it needed a new ignition because he couldnt find the keys no problem $20.00.Then it needed a battery. got those taken care of and it wanted to start but just wouldnt fire. then my wife smelled a wire burning and i about fell out. they had it set up with a kill switch under the dash(thats what was burning) removed the kill switch and she fired right up and purrrrred like a kitten. Now comes the fun part..full frame up restoration...It's going to be an off-road deer lease vehicle but i want to do it properly and get any issues out of the way before hand. Well sorry for the long story but i figured i would let everyone know how i became a jeep addict...i will post pictures of the build and progress on the appropriate forum so stay tuned...

Welcome aboard Brian!

Congrats Brian and Welcome to WF

I am right down the road from you in La Marque and can't wait to watch the pics of the resto'. That is some of the best fun in having a Jeep.
