My 87 Toy Project

Started to do a frame off on my 76 CJ last fall (last ran 20 years ago before I put it in dad's barn) but time and distance (at in-laws in OK) prevented any real effort so instead of waiting forever to again enjoy the thrills of wheeling a jeep I purchased this one to bridge the gap.

This one appears to have been a hunting vehicle in a past life as subsequent pictures will show but I say let the work begin - will post some additional pics from the last 6 weeks of tearing into it.

Decided to start with repairing the floor pan and firewall using ideas I picked up on the forums here - POR-15 and fiberglass

Prepping for bedliner - scrapping the crappy bondo job the PO did on the seams was fun! More POR-15 as well.

After reviewing all the bedliner posts / pics decided to go with Raptor Lining - glad I did as it turned out great - can't believe how easy it was to apply.

Underside is in decent shape - one soft spot on the frame but not bad enough to be concerned - POR-15 there as well and will need to replace the gas tank skid, replace the body mounts and fiberglass the underside of the drivers pan (probably doesnt need it but...).
