Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals. Im restoring a 1980 cj7 she is in a poor state at the mo. I was wondering if to replace the two doors or have half doors. And if its legal to drive here in the uk without the doors

Either of these projects still ongoing? If you're interested I've got some CJ YJ stuff for free might be of help. See Jeep parts for sale.

Any updates on both projects ?

 

Been picking away at it. Most of the work is hidden underneath, so not many spectacular pics to show really, but here's a few...

Mike, do you want a soft top frame for your CJ if it's topless at the mo? Got the complete original frame, hoops and door surrounds for a hard door CJ. No fabric though ( well, I have got the fabric but it's pretty shot, you'd be welcome to it its the original whitmore jeep one ) You'd just have to get a new replace-a-top for it.  If you do let me know, you can have it.

Cheers

Tim

Thanks for the offer. I have a top to go on it, but I might know a man who can use it. With your permission, I'll pass the info to him if he's interested :great:

No worries, pass it along. Just looking for a good home, rather see it on a Jeep than sitting in my garage .

Hi John,

 

Did have both off an '84 but gone to new homes, not got much left now. Best bet is Lighthouse Jeep spares, I got a pair of new Crown Automotive wings there.

Always like to see the CJ's getting sorted !! I had 2 back in the day (early 90's) . A 1979 CJ7 Renegade and a 1975 CJ5 Levi,s edition. The CJ7 came up for sale again a couple of years ago in Sterling Scotland, But I missed the repurchase by a couple of days !!

 Anyone Know anything about it ?    Last photo I saw it was white , Grey then green when I had it  LJX338T.
