The restoration has started

Hello everyone, Well the 82 Wagoneer has finally arrived from Montana (to Michigan). It seems to get more beautiful, and at the sametime uglier every time I see it. It's in the center bay of my garage already, and has had a tuneup and oil change, with a quick once over for bad belts, hoses, etc. (been sitting still in the Montana heat and cold since 2004).

First off I can see that I need to start planning for an engine pull. The undercarriage is pretty nasty with old oil. I did notice that the oil pan drain plug was loose, and was missing the brass washer. Maybe the Jeep gods will smile on me and that is where the oil came from. But I am prepared to do an entire gasket and seal change over. Was well as clean up a few odds and ends.

Started working on figuring out the small (but ever growing) number of electrical issues. 1) Rear window No up or down. 2) Rear Def inop. 3) A/C no juice at all. But hey the Cruise control still works....

I will upload some pics soon as I figure out how best to do that.

Any info, or advise that anyone has is VERY VERY welcomed..

Be good all...

I too have a 1982 Wagoneer from Montana that I might be restoring soon.

I would recommend a thorough cleaning, this includes areas that are not obvious such as cowl drain cavity, lower rear portion of front fender, front box section of frame, front shock tower pockets, rocker panel cacity, rearmost body mount cavity and header pannel cavity. If you plan to clean these areas you might be interested in ways to make the job easier and tips that might help to keep them clear in the future, just ask.

Thanks, It's clean for the most part, as I with a lot of vehicles from Montana, and those areas of the country where salt is not an issue. I have found a couple of small rust spots. The inside is clean, but during the restoration I can see that there are going to be a number of interior trim parts that have become brittle from the heat and sun, and are going to be tough to replace.

Right not I am cleaning the interior and starting to sort out of the electrical issues.....

Be good, enjoy the day..

I have noticed Jeeps and classic cars of all types parked everywhere dying a slow death since I moved up here.

Welcome from Brighton. It looks like you have a nice wagoner to start with.
