Hi all

I've enjoyed reading the forum for quite a while and decided it's time to go legit and register. My dad had the jeep bug many years ago and had a variety (slat grills to M38A1s). They've all gone on to new owners and I received his last CJ3A.

I'm always looking for maintenance tips and new ideas. The bug was obviously inherited.

Your info says you're from Washington state but the picture is from the bottom of the earth, must be Australia. (upside down).
  

People think I go out of my way to piss them off.
Trust me, It's not out of my way at all.

Hi Mike,
Nice looking 3A.  I'm seeing it right side up. Tell us a little more about it.

Heh, posting images can be a challenge. Here's another one.

Converted to 12v and a 10si alternator, front parking lights have twin filament bulbs for turn signals, spare tire mounted on the back but not on the tailgate or draw bar, Harrison heater currently being installed with a homebuilt core. Entire jeep was rebuilt from the ground up by my dad 10+ years ago. It is pretty much 'stock' but not 100% original, e.g. the M38 windshield.

Well damn, your Dad did nice work.  What year is it?  Have you added it to the 3A Database?
