Houston here too but I get to New Braunfels often. My 76 wagon is still 2-3 months out from completion (I hope). :cry: I am going to have a heck of a time when it come to reassembly,... Clovis, let's meet up in Gruene as soon as I get my rig back on the road. And I would be happy to help you out when i am in the area. Will let you know.

We should start a list of Texas salvage yards that have FSJ's for parts. I am still searching Houston.

How about a houston sandblaster recommendation?
Come on down to Galveston, I'll buy the beer and the fishing boat when we're tired of messing with the jeep!

I am new to the dallas area. moved my family from IL a year ago. The waggy is almost ready for the road again once I get the temp gauge working and maybe even the AC. I am really not used to the texas heat yet

I replaced all my instruments with modern old school looking guages. You're welcome to my old instrument panel. A note of caution, all my bezel mounting post broke due to dry root and deterioration. Only take off what you have to and only if absolutely necessary.

I really appreciate the offer twikel, but I just have to trace the wire and hook it up or run a new one. the wires for the temp gauge and heat and ac got lost when I replace d the engine. The buddy who helped me forgot to tag those, and it took 9 months to get the project back together and then I moved to texas and another year has passed so its been a lot of head scratching. runs good now though now . I could drive without it but I replaced the waterpump radiator and all the hoses when I replaced the engine and haven't run it for more than 20 minutes since I got it running again.

I have eyed the digital gauge set on BJs site a bunch of times too. I really would like a tack too.

Twikel do you have any pics or a thread of the project for the gauges.
