Hi Shibu !!

My suggestion would be to try either Niagara if you want a dark tone or Opaline green if you are looking for a lighter tone paint.
regards

Hi JC,

That Sea Foam Green will looks good with a black combination. We had a CJ500 with same colour long back...

Hi JC

arent you planning to go in for your signature yellow this time?

Since you are planning to make it a civilian model, you must paint the steel wheels white.

Cheers!

Ramsagar, I still havent decided about the colour . Because of the recent rains the pre-painting jobs are halted or delayed. So I have more time to think..

Some more updates
1) Brand new windshield frame installed.
2) Got the scissor type soft tope frame done.
3) Fabricated front split seats and a small forward facing rear seat.
4) Rear Bumprettes have been installed.
5) Tow hook installed

Thanks Jasvinder.

Rain gods were kind enough to complete the filler and the primer job.Weather proof Hamerton paint is applied in the interior aswell.

A small issue has creeped up. The rear door fitment doesn't seems to be looking good. Have a look at the picture below.

CJ3B's experts please comment how to fix it.

I think you can get it done the Old School way (Drop down kind) it will need a few modifications to the tail gate and the body tub. It will also complement the look of the Jeep. If you need the two holding clamps that hold the drop down tail gate I can find them in Mayapuri and send them over.

Hi Jaswinder, Thanks so much for the suggestion. I will try that out. Meanwhile can you please find those clamps to convert it to drop down tail gate in mayapuri and send it to me, that will be really great and also the chains.

Shubu, Bonnet is not fit properly. In jeeps, the bolting holes need to be adjusted before tightening. Ask your mech to readjust the same.
