A few more pictures, I removed the doors primary reason being my nephew got quite interested in the way the lock works and I was sure he was going to break them. The doors are now safe.
I also removed the original horn. Those are safe too.

Dear Beejay - please reorient the headlight grilles. They must be vertical as in original production. You have to remove them, rotate them clockwise and refit them. Also please remove the small fog lights in front. They are not original and do not look good. Please change the tyres with tubes. Use Bridgestone or JK Brute P215/75R15 tyres only (of Bolero).

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

Benny - Can you do me a favor.

Can you post more detailed pics of Under-HOOD. I want to use your jeep as a reference so that I can understand my CJ. I want all possible angles and wiring especially. Since mine is a MESS!!

Also some pics of the Roll-Cage without the Softtop if possible. And how and where are they bolted onto the body tub.

Can you post some pics of the seats and how and where they are bolted too. Are the front seats inclinable? Or fixed? do they move front/back? How about the rear bench? How are they bolted?

Ps - Do you have the original tax invoice for this vehicle? Can you scan and post a copy? I want to use it to enquire Road tax payment for KA state. Since both our CJ's are TN43 I think it will be very helpful for me.

Thank you for your inputs, will do that. I understand the fog lights are not original, yet there is something about it which is very nostalgic, initially I had wanted to put a pair of lightforce, yet I think it would not have looked good considering the fact that the Jeep is completely stock. So, will keep them normal ones for a while.

Pm me your email, will send you the pictures. The front passenger seat can be inclined forward. The driver seat is fixed. The rear bench is bolted to the platform, will send you the pictures.

Will scan and send you the tax invoice.

I am unable to get the original hood for the CJ340. Mr. Behram has very patiently described on how I can mend the same and have it fitted back. This is option one.

I was thinking of getting an identical one custom made, however none of the upholstery guys make the hood in canvas now. Are there any places where they make hoods in canvas.

Also, I am unable to get JK Brute 215 4x4 tyres in Coimbatore. Any leads?

Getting the soft top material from Bombay. Having the same stitched by Saddles in Calicut. Thanks to Dr. Messiah a kind bhpian who had told me about Saddles in Calicut. This is not the Saddles in Bangalore, rather a very small shop run by some people who are specialists in this line. They do the tops for convertibles et all.

I just know where they are located. Near head post office on cannonore road.
Run by Anglo Indians. Will send you the details once I get the same. Supposedly they are quite famous in the region and fix tops for Slks and other imported convertibles.
