2 More Jeeps

I got two more Jeeps today. The Wagoneer is a 78 and the J10 is a 79. They will need some work but they look to be in decent shape.

Yep, in Roanoke

That is the better side of the truck. The drivers side has a little bed seam rust and is wrinkled some along the top edge.

I am glad I didn't see you driving down I-81, I would have become a stalker. Did you some of my old posts on a FSJ salvage yard out in Floyd?
You should be able to do a search. If I can find it I will add a link. I think the Wagon looks great too!

This was a part I got there. I am still looking because I posted about 10 pictures of all the Jeeps.

Got to play with my new finds some today. The Honcho runs real nice and it better with only 63K miles. The gas guage even works! I had to retard the spark some. It was way to far avanced causing it to idle rough. Once i took care of that it smoothed right out.

The wag had not run for a while. The last inspection sticker ran out in 02. After a battery and some gas down the carb it started right up. It doesn't run the best and the motor seemed tired, but hopefully all it needs is a tune up. While I was under it I discovered the channel above both rear body mounts has rusted off. What is the best way to fix this? It looks like I can build a new channel from maybe 14 ga sheet metal?

Here it is jammed in the shop getting some new wheel bearings. The body and paint isn't perfect, but its not too bad. The hood is a slightly different color beacuse its the only part I've polished so far.
