    Need to get my 48 CJ2A running again!!

    Hi all,
    It was a little beat up but ran well when I decided to take it apart 23 years ago. Had 2 kids and haven't touched it since. Really itching to get it back together and running again. It has a flat head Kaiser 6 in it. I think it spent some time in the forest service. Originally Orangeish red and used to go fishing in it in Chester, Ca when I was a kid so has sentimental value. I started painting it yellow 23 years ago but am now thinking I'd go with a deeper red/burgundy. I have since bought a yellow 72 Chevy C20 truck so don't need 2 yellow rigs. My fuel system is gunked up and need to replace the gas tank. Debating over a plastic or metal tank. I'm strong on paint and welding but not as much on mechanical so will probably be asking a lot of questions.

    That's my story and looking forward to joining this group!

    Thanks,
    Tip

    Which Red?

    It's gotta be red.

    The original Red for a 48 CJ 2A was Luzon Red. My '48 truck was Tunisian Red and BMorgil found the lady in the Dupont Vintage Paint Library who gave us all the formulas for the original color.

    Luzon Red is just a bit lighter and brighter that Tunisian Red.

    (We sound like a bunch of women talking about this and that color. We really can't match shirts and pants and neckties...)

    Red is red. Not two syllables. Pics or it didn't happen!
