Default "Home Wrecker" '71 CJ5

'71 CJ5 I've been tinkering with.

A few of my toys have earned the prestigious title of "Home Wrecker".
It's been a real pain in the arse finding parts worth on.
Spent too much money on a glass tub.. and spend too much time in the shop under it.

Wife hates it.

for now

Anyway.. Ive almost got it put back together.
Doing a full mock up, installing quick disconnects on the harness..
finding missing parts... then paint? and wheel?

When I brought it home:

Tub was shot, rear floor was gone..literally not there. Front pans were covered in layers of patches.
JUNK so I scrapped it. Found a glass tub, didn't quite fit right.. but after some body supports and mounts in place its rock solid.
Still drilling holes...

Tub off:

New tub:

Mock up:
