Nuclear Lemon already spec'd it all out, My tipoff was the drop down gate and then the rplc. brown HT. Have you got the tool roll? Nice find. A survivor.

Was this your wife's number? I sent the text with the pics and got a response something to the effect of: "Who the hell are you and why are you sending me pictures of a rusty jeep?" and yes, I double checked the number you listed.

I've been slowly working on the 40 over the last almost 2 years. It is now back to being a soft top. I pretty much have all the parts I needed for my relic restoration. This is Martins old top and some paki bows. I had the top repaired and add the cornor windows. Looking forward to summer.

Is it weird that I think that old rig looks sexy?

Beautiful.

Nice job fixing the top. I can see what you were saying about the back being too tight. the seam should wrap over that rear hoop. Might need to shorten the bows a touch, and maybe the center horizontal support as well to get it to fit just right without having to stretch the heck out of it.

Nice job Terry, it looks great with the original patina and stock wheels. Get those OEM soft doors on next!

Terry, people in the hot rod culture would pay big $$$$ for a patina like that. I think it looks killer like that. Don't paint it.

I shortened the back bows about an inch. I fits good now. I had the zippers replaced on the back, and they don't go up as far as they did, so the fit is fine. I need to get new windows for the soft doors then I will redo them.
