Kandy Apple Red 1984 Jeep CJ-7


This jeep is originally from California and rolled into our shop with almost no rust. This was a  3/4 restoration and ended up looking like a brand new jeep without having to lift it off the frame.


It originally came with the hard doors and hard top and clean underneath and body in general, for the use of it. We gave it a 2-inch lift, using 33 BF Goodrich k-o tunes. we went with new 15′ steel wheels with a blacked out look. We went with the original CJ Red color and 4 coats of high-grade urethane clear coat and ultra fined and buffed to give it that “Show Car” gloss.


As we were doing this build you’ll see in the pictures we went with a brand new front windshield, rubber weatherstrips, wipers and wiper blades. The doors were taken apart and dismantled and all the glass was removed.

Every one of these cj7 s usually has two cracks on the inside of the door (fatigue cracks) right next to where the vent window locks into place right about 25% up the front of the door.
So, we welded those nice so they’re solid again. We then put them into primer and base and clear and then wet sanded and buffed and then we put them on a nice soft table and put the new glass back in clean. Typically, just to do the doors you’re looking at a day’s worth of labor probably a half a day to paint them and I’m gonna say a few hours to wet sand them buff and a few hours to assemble. The doors are not a 5-minute project; you can blow a day or a day and a half on a set of doors.


The jeep got brand new steel latches, hood latches, park lights, side marker lights and a full stainless steel exhaust with Bora stainless muffler. We redid the brakes and belts and belts and battery too.
