I Can Stop Any Time I Want...

The ChopTop should be here July 18th...

Hopefully it will keep me busy enough I'll stop buying things like this...



At lease I have front fenders now...

Looks like a LOT extra just to get a set of fenders!

And judging by your list of vehicles, you won't be stopping anytime soon...

Dude... save my marriage and leave soon!

It was dirt cheap, I can use a number of bits for my existing M715 and I'm sure I'll find pieces for the ChopTop project in addition to the fenders.

Actually, but the time I paid for a pair of fenders and shipped them here I didn't spend much extra... yeah, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

The dealership part isn't very accurate.
He doesn't seem to be SELLING them.
Just collecting

Hmmmm... the body shop that is working on Elwood used to be a Lincoln/Mercury/Jeep dealership. I know they sold the NOS Jeep parts off at some point but I wonder about the dealership signs.

You want if they have more than one?

Sure, we can all stop... anytime...

We have been lucky to buy a couple 401s in the last few years that just happened to come wrapped in a FSJ. I get the logic. You were after fenders and got a bonus!

I have bought 3 GW since I bought mine in march. All were used for parts. Stripped then crushed. Everytime I get another, I think hmm I could keep this and make a nice jeep. Then reality hits and I need the money back out of them.

He wanted $2,500 for it back in February. I got myself smacked around on another board for suggesting it wasn't worth half that much and then last week it showed up on Craigslist for a LOT less and with a "OBO". I rarely miss the opportunity to explore the limits of the "best offer".

The bed is decent on this one, the tailgate is scrap.

Don't count it out just yet, if the Jeep stamping is decent, you can cut it out and weld it on one of the repro tailgates!
