|1978 Jeep CJ5
This CJ5 belongs to a customer who contacted us about
repairing & painting the body. They brought it to us in the
beginning of May already stripped of hardware & accessories.
|Once all the old paint & bondo was removed, we found more rust
then initially thought. We cut out the floorboards, rocker panels
and any other areas that contained rust.
|New metal was welded in and the body was straightened and
dollied to the original shape. When the Jeep came to us the left
rear corner had an inch of bondo. After repairs were made, that
same corner was skimmed with a thin layer of filler.
|The sheet metal seams were sealed inside and
underneath. The body was prepped and
primed, ready for color.
|The Jeep was painted Patriot Blue. The interior had a bedliner
applied. At this time, we do not have a finished project picture
since the customer is reassembling the Jeep. We are happy to
have taken part in this restoration.
