Jim, did you notice the suicide doors on CJ5's Jeep? This looks like a home-made top. :innocent:

Good eye Jack, nice to see somebody notices the details.
No, it isn't a home made top, though I did spin the hinges around myself.
I thought it would be easier to climb onto the hood when I was stuck in the mud. :innocent:
That top is actually a factory made top from a 1975 or older. Notice the angle of the windshield....WAAAAY too straight up and down to be a '76 or newer.

Jim, I'lll be takng the 5 for a boot tomorrow. It has been so cold that I have been drivin the Rubicon almost every day, but it is supposed to be warm so I'll get that pic for you then. :1thumb:

Thats a cool idea. :1thumb: How much trouble was it to reverse the hinges and latch? :innocent:

Well, I had to make all the hardware..... I have to say that I am a fairly experienced fabber, and in saying that, It was enough agrivation that I'd probably not do it again. Believe me, It was 20-25 hours of labour to make it work, and even now, I want to tweek it a little.... :1thumb:

I also put hinges in between the body and front fenders, so that I can open them up for easier engine maintainence....... :innocent:

Take lots of pics......

The most agrivating part of this restoration was having to cut the oval hole in the body (after painting) for the TJ filler spout and cap. :gun:

I won't have that problem since I'm not doing that mod :D

I have enough to deal with the brakes, power steering, on boar air, wiring, and 50 other things
