1980 Jeep J10 Honcho Sportside - restore

Hello everyone.
I'd like share with you my works and the history of mi 1980 stepside that I bought one year ago from michigan and imported in my city, Rome Italy.

ONE OWNER, 77000 original miles, more than 10 years in the garden of the owner.

Almost everything was factory and truck was almost complete

Here some pictures before to get it. In these picture it was still in the country were he was born.

Nice!! Congratulations on the purchase! I miss my Sportside. I regret selling it but at least the new owner is doing it justice.

Original paint, never repainted.
5 original wheels
Original brushguard
original black interior jeans (no levi's logo cause it's a post '79)

And Icing on the cake the original vehicle building order

For woodrails I need your help. Next night I hope to make some drawing in 2d and 3d of pieces for wood rails.

I have not the right dimensions so I hope somebody will complete my drawings with them
