CJ-5 Jeep Willy's

Frame and old body was towed to our shop September 2016.  Our clients original plan was to swap the old body for a new pre-fabricated aftermarket body due to the amount of rust and body work that was present on the original body. When the “new” body arrived it was not correct to the frame of the Jeep and was not the same body as the original body which is what our client wanted.  Plans changed and restoration of the original body was in order. Due to a few set backs we were able to complete this restoration in 11 months.

Bed Liner

A surface protection solution that we felt was necessary for this Jeep restoration was applied to the inner floor pan.  U-Pol Raptor, is well known in the automotive industry that promotes high quality and superior performance products. We felt that this was a good choice for this project since a Jeep is just for “joy riding” but also “rugged terrain riding”. We will be following up with our customer in regards to how this product upholds in the future.

Mike & Paulette's Final Thoughts

Many set backs, but we are very pleased with the final delivery of this restoration.  It’s a beautiful Jeep! Giving our customer a few moments to fight back some tears after getting choked up said it all.  It was bitter sweet watching this one leave our lot. We can’t wait to see it on the road!
