Awww, does this mean it's take a break for stripping/selling time? And just when this was getting REALLY good!

Or
You must have that magnetic personality that attracts Jeeps. Are you going to do something with your "last of a great breed"? Can't be very many of those left.

I haven't had time to process
I had a dry spell where there was nothing and this weekend must mark the spouse's "get rid of that thing" cause I am headed out to look at stuff tomorrow and Sunday :)

Also found this when cleaning out the Jeep that these seats came from...
Pretty cool piece.

on another piece of paper was some handwritten notes... the removal of the AM radio and replaced with upgraded radio was $289... that seemed very expensive to me for basically an AM/FM radio... maybe a tape player? not sure, but that seems expensive.

So, mostly complete... took a while to get it just right and there are only a couple bolts in there now to keep it in place.
I have to get the other mounts mocked in and welded onto this frame and might have to move 2 mounts as they aren't were the stock ones were exactly... but the hard work is done... and I had to throw the cap on it to see the dimensions.

Even the wheels are centered

It is pretty much exactly what I had in my head for proportions and dimensions.
Too bad I have to shelve it for a while... that cab needs some attention to really finish it out.

The tape deck appeared for the first time as a 1983 model year option, so this is very possible. My 1984 has it on the window sticker and it was $325.00 that year (no swap out)

I like it a lot!
What do you have in mind for flares? Looking at it with its current stance the 6” wide would really fit it proportionally. Just my thoughts

I was thinking more on the stock side, but have to see how that looks when I get the sides repaired... there is still a lot of metal work to do there.
There is a lot of metal work actually ;)
