    New radiator
    Electric backup fuel pump
    Re-wire
    All new shocks
    All new wheel cyclinders

    Re-sewn seats by hand
    memory foam stuffed seats
    Rebuilt jump seat to pivot again
    Repair temp guage
    Repair gas guage
    Mechanical fuel pump
    New gas lines

    The first generation Jeepsters were the American version of the MG's or Austin-Healys. There was nothing that looked remotely like them and they were unique.

    I've always considered the Jeepster to fit in a niche kind of like a Corvette; sharp looking, fun to drive and not a lot of practicality.

    Now, you just need some flashy white sidewalls on that lil' critter!

    Keep us posted!
