FSJ wall art project.

When I was pulling together parts for my build, I bought this tailgate out of California. He sent me pics and said it was in great shape and nearly rust free. Well it got crushed in shipping, and had more rust than I wanted to fix, so it went into storage. Was not a total lost because I was able to use a few parts out of it and sold the glass and regulator. Started to do a clean up around the shop and decided to cut up the gate and make some wall art. Polished it up, put aluminum trim, lock cylinder, Quadra-Trac emblem, and the old Louisiana plate I had laying around onto it. Fun little project, check it out. The red plate was a perfect match that year.

Very nice! I love the red. Maybe add an old window crank with the flip-up lock cover with the Jeep logo on it?
Very cool

That looks awesome! I think it needs better attaching hardware, thought. Next hurricane is going to send that guy into Georgia!
