My new to me 1980 CJ7

After looking off and on for a few years, I finally picked up a 1980 CJ7, 6 cyl, 4 speed manual. It drove home great 55 miles and I promptly started taking it apart to rewire it and fix other PO issues. Should be on the road in a few weeks.

Yeah, I think the camo paint is kinda cool. I was expecting it to be a wrap, but it is paint.

I like the camo on your YJ too.

Thank you. It is a wrap. In hindsight I wish I had thought to ask for a matte finish. I was unhappy with the high gloss. I told the guy, "Its camo, its supposed to be dull not stick out like a billboard." But the work manship was so good and I just wanted to drive it and not have to wait for them to redo it.
