‘Unpacking’ the Jeep.
We had to go to deepest darkest Devon to find a Jeep we wanted to restore. We chose it because the mechanical components were in good order, it had already been UK registered, had a lot of the original fittings and the bodywork was in the right state – not too far gone to restore, but bad enough that we didn’t feel guilty about taking it back to its bare components.
This is the Jeep in its original state when it arrived at the workshop.
The seats were in good condition, just dirty. They later got cleaned with a jet wash, ready for a coat of Blanco.
Stripping off the panels was amazingly quick, which you would expect for a car that could be stripped in the field.
