Description

The first year of the "New" Jeepster Commando. I found this on a gold mine claim outside Leadville, Colorado and have spent the last year restoring it.
Under the hood is the original Dauntless 225 which runs great. I have replaced the water and fuel pump, battery and cables, distributor cap, rotor, points, plugs and wires. Put a timing light on it and it's got the rhythm of a metronome. It's also sporting a brand new single muffle exhaust system. The hubs work fine and have not been replaced.
On the body I did something unique. As part of the body work process we welded the seams where the body panes came together and then smoothed over the seams. The effect is very cool and strong. New rocker panels from the Jeepsterman were installed on both sides. Also, from the Jeepsterman we installed new floor pans. All rust (not much) was grinded and prepped with rustproofing primer. The paint was done to have a bit of a mottled green look to give it some character. 2 coats of semi-gloss clearcoat was done over top.
Inside, I had a brand new custom cover made for the dash pad including white off-color stitching. Not sure the pictures will do that justice. Another Jeepsterman product was the custom replacement seat covers that are matches to the originals. The gauges all work as do the accessories. On the inside of the roof I put up a beautiful piece of finished wood. It really looks cool. And of course, that roof can come off. I two-toned the door panel covers and the screws just for fun and it looks great. Almost forgot, it has brand new weatherstripping around the doors and rear hatch.
And finally, it got new 235.75.R15 tires today.
This is not a frame off restoration but I am very proud of how it came out.
I'll be happy to answer any questions but ask that you post them for all to read.
