I believe the CJ 10 doors are the same as the postal ones. I saw some listed on CL a few days ago and put the info under 3rd party sales. No pictures or price but a name and phone number. OR isn't too far away from TX if seller is willing to ship and price is reasonable. Might double check with other members if the doors are the same and get pictures if these are still available.
I’m hoping that slow and steady wins the race. Not much more done, but more bolt issues. This time the windshield bracket. Out of the 8 bolts holding the hinge to the windshield frame, 2 on the driver’s side stripped out.
So I drilled them out and used an extractor to pop the heads off.
Now the bracket can come off, and I can then drill out the remainder of the bolt.
That is the only place on the frame that is questionable. The rest of the frame is in excellent shape. Even here, the frame is full thickness, no rust degradation, just a nasty crack. Not completely sure what I will do with the front. I have a single set of frame plates for the front, and a set for the rear. Originally I was planning to only plate the outside, but now I am considering replacing the front and plating the outside and fish plating the inside at the joint, or repair it and plate a section of the front on the inside as well.
Won't be easy on the inside (between the gear mount and sway bar mounts. Definitely would consider steering gear mount to reinforce that portion of the frame (with inside plate/patch) where cracks where sway bar mounts are. Especially if you're planning larger tires. Odd that it happened on both sides? Love seeing the work a good welder can do.
