We removed the interior today. Revealed very little rust. Only problem spots are surface rust areas under the lefthand front floorpan. Nearly ready for por 15 application and undercoat.
We requested a build sheet for Ole Blue via email from Chrysler Corp yesterday, late at night. It arrived at 4:00 AM this morning!
Ole Blue has been in the garage nearly a week and we’ve been planning on what to do with him. We removed the soft top and half doors to get at the interior and see what we’re dealing with as far as body issues. Surprisingly we found very little to no rust, one ding, and aside from being shrunk due to 19 years of weather, the top is in excellent condition.
On December 23, 2013, we purchased a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ, which we named ‘Ole Blue’. This wrangler spent the first 19 years of it’s life on a horse farm in Sykesville, MD, and saw very little action on public roads. The vehicle was purchased with 28,000 original miles on it.
