thanks for the info sammy, iam looking for a working 4WD and not a gedi jeep. so please confirm if it has a working 4x4.

also i would like to restore a jeep and not buy an already restored jeep, because i want to restore it as per my needs and requirements.

thanks for keeping me informed, Aulakh Saab.

Initially I thought this is still on undercoat, I am still not sure if the painting is done ? what is this shade called as ? In case you are opting for a grey shade why not lightslategray #778899 you can check the visuals in Wikipedia.

I am not trying to confuse you are criticize the paint, however if you have not opted for Matt finish then the surface could be much smooth and shiny.

sammyaulakh,

With 17767 on the odo this is a almost new Jeep, mechanically. The work on the engine while restoration must have been minimum.

A good job on the body and paint, it has come a long way and luckily to some one who is putting it back this passionately.

The colour is a matter of personal choice and if it works for you don't bother. I would add two-three shades of blue to the present shade to get a different light blue.

Looking forward to the final product.
Regards,

@ chanu sir,
The actual shade is much darker than it looks in the pic.I think it has
come out lighter because of the camera flash reflecting on the surface.
The jeep still has to undergo buffing that is why no shine yet.
@ Fazalaliadil sir,
Thank you ,The mechanicals on the whole were in almost brand new
condition.There was no work undertaken on the engine front except
changing the oil and spark plugs.It fired on the first crank.

I understand Sammyaulakh ji the paint process is still to complete, I am sure it will be great, are you coloring the chassis and rims silk black or the body color, I am sure lot here might prefer black chassis however I would go for the body color on chassis and rims, this is your personal choice. I feel being a jeeper is a fun in it's regard and we all feel lucky about it but in your case you are double lucky by not only getting a jeep which is used minimal and now after giving a new lease of life you would enjoy the best part from the engine side as well, I would say the JEEP has not done anything compared to the jeeps auctioned by govt. I guess it is all because it was commissioned as fire tender, it did not have the chance to go places like most of the fire tenders even today they get spoiled because of not using them rather using.

I am really happy for the JEEP and you, hope both would do great guns together.

Thanks. We are eagerly awaiting to see your baby. So pls post some pics soon .
I am also doing a restoration of my 1985 Mahindra CJ500D.
I hope you have gone for the sky blue shade. Its a rare shade compared to the green which every T,D&H goes for.

Dear Sammyaulakh - oh my God, you have lived my dream. I just love the CJ3BLHD, "LHD" is important. At 17000 miles, you have got yourself a steal yaar! I eagerly await the pictures, please post them ASAP.

Best regards,
