My Cousin Eric’s 1978 CJ-5 Project

UPDATE:  Eric shared some early pictures of his work.  

This summer my cousin Eric bought a CJ-2A in Idaho and trucked it back to his new home in Enumclaw.  This was his first jeep and it has been disassembled, now awaiting assembly.  It seems the Willys but has bit him, because he while waiting to assemble his CJ-2A, he bought a 1978 CJ-5 project that needed some cosmetic work.  He recently got that together and it looks pretty good.  I really like the copper color. Between our busy schedules I have yet to see this in person, but I hope to soon.

    @ Steve,

    I ordered it through a local parts house in Enumclaw WA that specializes in aftermarket jeep parts… but you can get it through Napa or anyother major parts distributor.

    I have sent in additional pics to my cousin to post, this has been a labor of love and hate at times but its the journey that counts not the destination… Colette and i are planning on taking our new toy out on Feb 11th for a big jeep run… we are looking forward to getting it Dirty!!! lol

    Oh… and we will post pics as well.
