1990 Wrangler Restoration
How you guys doin? I'm in the process of a complete restoration of a 1990 Wrangler. So far today, I've got the fenders hood, interior seats, and most everything off of the firewall with the exception of the clutch and brake cylinders on the driver's side. I'm aiming to have to entire body off the frame by the end of tomorrow when I get out of work.

Sorry, I switched them to a different folder in Photobucket to separate them from pics of my Ranger...Hope those work!

Yeah, we're just taking our time once the body is off. I'm going to school for Automotive repair starting in January, so as I go along in classes, I'm going to use that to work on this for a little extra practice. The entire driver's floor is gone too, but my dad is good at the body work side of things and my brother is good with electrical systems, so it's kind of a joint effort between the three of us, but as I go you'll get pics.

So the progress so far today was slow, but I'm now ready to get the tub off. The body bolts are so rusted you can't get a wrench on them and when you do it just rounds the bolt off when you turn it. I'm aiming to get the tub off tomorrow using a cutting torch (we're buying new bushings and bolts so we don't care about these). Pics look about the same, the ECU was the hardest thing to get the wire out of the firewall, that's what I was held up on all day...hopefully it's just a frame tomorrow evening.
