I could not source a replacement gasket for the rear window. It has a metal trim strip insert. The body guy was careful and able to save and reuse the original.  Other shops had told me it could not be done and they would just have to tape off the rear window for the repaint.

I was leaning towards gold, but wanted one that really popped. Jeep Aztec gold could be a natural choice. It looked good in the sun but seemed too dark and orange in the shade. It was a tough balance to find, not too orange but not too green either.  I had been looking through paint books for months. Then I finally saw it driving home from Vegas on I-15! It was on a Scion Xb, "Inca gold mica," a limited edition color offered only for a year or so.

Ground out the rust and pulled the dent.  Then filled and sanded the body straight.

Starting the body work. Pulled off all of the body moldings and got to see what we were dealing with.  Not too bad considering it was literally a barn find in Western Washington state.  Turns out it is a Ziebart dipped car.

Hello Denizens, Wow does life change!  Joined an accounting practice in West Los Angeles and living in Santa Monica.  Never imagined I'd be back in LA.  Still have the house in Bend, it's a much needed refuge.  Loaded up the Eagle and brought it down to a shop in Chatsworth.  A friend of a friend who builds cars for the movies when he's not building Jeeps.  Left La Pine in the early afternoon and made it to Gorman at the top of the Grapevine before spending the night in the back of the truck.  750 miles from the snow to the sun!
