Default Cj Found In Indore

Dear Pawan - excellent job done, all credits to you.

During my recent visit to Indore, I found these lying on the road to Mhow. Maybe it gives an idea of original headlight orientation etc. It was indeed sad to see them like this.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

The government should get some rule where we can buy these RIP vehicles. They can be put back on the road with a little love and affection. What kills them is the lack of documents.

When you can manufacture a car in your back-yard and get documents for it through the normal channels, why can't someone resurrect a car and then get documents for it?

I dont understand Arun, and with your views. We restorers should atleast get some relief from the RTO's, regarding documents for all older vehicles restored.

There are so many olden days beauties waiting to get restored but who's there to hear us.

Thank you very much guys,

The jeep is still waiting for the original Front Grille, thankfully Mr UBS has already made arrangements for the same.

Will update fresh pics soon.

Mechanicals. Here's the list.

1) Complete suspension done as per the original specification.

2) Original Brake Master Cylinder installed, New wheel cylinders used, New brake pipes drawn, Brake shoes replaced with new ones.

3) Transfer case- cleaned and greased

4) Hand brake- Brake shoes redone

5) Inlet and Exhaust Manifolds cleaned and new packings added.

6) Tappets and valve clearence adjusted

Small and minor mechanicals worked upon. There was nothing much to do in this Jeep.
Mostly cosmetics.

There are absolutely no words to explain the hard work and dedication that you have put in this project. I am shocked to know that, it is really possible to be passionate about automobiles to such an extent. I believe its not even hard work, u have just surrendered yourself to the beautiful machines. Even a lame man like me are attracted to these beauties with amazing restoration works presented here. No length of lines are enough to praise them. Good luck buddy. From my side few things are still pending .

Exclamation present state of this Willy

Hi Pavan and others

Just my first day in Team-BHP and I've found Pavan or rather he found me. Much to the envy of some, I now drive this beauty restored by Pavan and rest assured it is well taken care off.

Also, still on the hunt for the Grille and ORVM.

Some recent pictures:







Hope Pavan is satisfied with how we are maintaining it

This Willy was bought by my Brother-in-law and I consider myself lucky to get to drive it. Thanks a lot Pavan for your amazing work , its your effort that is making heads turn whenever I take this Willy out of home.
