I am glad to see you wanting to fix the fenders back to the original Flatfender design.

Cheta,..do you have any source for 7.16 NDMS in kerala. I am willing to ship it back here to Delhi as even 6.16 NDMS is becoming a rareity now.
Torque-ative, Its a regular SWB CJ3B. Probably the photo is bit deceiving.

I have some sources and I am checking the availability of NDMS in kerala and will get back to you as soon as I hear from them.

Hi Shibu,

This CJ3B would look wonderful without top and with windscreen down. Typical Rajesh Khanna "Mere Sapno ki Rani" style.... Please retain it to its Civilian looks.


Here are some colors that I would like to suggest for your CJ3B.

I think it looks longer because the rear wheel well has probably been altered. It doesn't seem to follow the original line.

Sabareesh, Thanks for the lovely pics and suggestion.Yes I am having second thoughts now. Initially I was thinking of converting/restoring to military style. But since there are too many of them I am seriously thinking about keeping my 3B with civilian looks.

Santhosh, It was not intentional, I was bringing it back home from garage after getting the metal top removed and it started raining all of a sudden.

Will post more pics soon..

Captain, Can you give an indicative price for which you bought it? KLZ is Calicut regn, right? How old is this jeep?

EDIT: Sorry, read again and found it was 1967.

Chocolate Brown or Grey colors suits well for a civilian jeep, else Half white with yellow tint in it will also look good.
Nice possession you have.
