    steering is out and entire brake system and clutch control, gone... now to snake the remaining wire harness, (which on the surface is intact)..
    leave the frame and front and rear differential and suspension to remove and then sand blast the frame

    Those are cleaning up nicely. Not a lot of rusted or eaten away places, just a few character marks.

    I'm no authority on the "little Jeeps", but from what I read about folks who buy a whole replacement tub, even "the exact fit tubs" end up being a cut, weld, grind adventure. If there's enough there to fix, stick with the original if you can.

    Looking at that spring - that could have rattled someone's teeth! (Probably just rusted quietly away though...)

    Sprung springs aren't that rare.
