76 Wagoneer

Hello:
I've learned an immense amount of great info from this site.
Decided its important to give back a bit. This is my first build on any vehicle.
This rig sat in a field for 12yrs before I stumbled upon it. At the time I didn't know
anything about FSJ. Just through it looks cool and I always wanted to rebuild an older 4x4. So I got it towed home. The idea was to change the oil, put some new tires, load the family in and enjoy..... Well not quite... Engine running rough.
Lack of compression in one of the cylinders caused from broken ring. Due to it being very old and sitting I got a shop to do a full rebuild on the 360.

I also rebuild the TH400 and QT (Chain, cones) from BJ Offroad. These I did myself. Fingers crossed.
Picked up a Miller 135 and am currently replacing rusted sheet metal.
The frame is solid and Ive wire wheeled, rust encapsulated most of it.

The Good: Well the drive train is done! Also complete jeep minus whats gone to rust! Trim, inside panels, dash all in good shape.
The Bad: Lots of panels to replace, body work and paint.

I'm really enjoying the process. Love welding! Lots of work but worth it.. I hope!
The goal is to have a safe, respectable Wagoneer for my family and I to enjoy.
I will have lots of questions and will need some help. This is a great site for a new guy like me.

UNSOLICITED ADVICE WELCOMED!
