    Looks great! You guys did a terrific job. I'm a little sad the project is over though. I really enjoyed the Calamity Jane video series. Will there be one with her wheeling or overlanding/exploring as soon as the weather gets warmer?

    Just finished watching the entire series all over again. A few questions:

    1) how did you decide to leave the windshield frame black and not paint it blue to match? Just preference?

    2) what were the power tools you used the most for the job? If I do a restoration, plan on spending a few hundred on some new tools to make it easier

    3) did you consider doing a frame off restoration? What stopped you from taking the body off? Did you do anything to help the frame out?

    Huge thanks for documenting it all. So valuable to me as I consider doing similar to a Scrambler or CJ7. Great job Eddie and Cindy!

    That's how intermediate Renegade model CJ-5's came back then.

    If you're gonna strip the paint off your Jeep like we did, you're gonna want a good dual action orbital sander. If you plan on patching up and fixing holes, you're gonna want a good welder. The more tools you have, the more options you have to work on things.

    3) did you consider doing a frame off restoration? What stopped you from taking the body off? Did you do anything to help the frame out?
    We were never planning on doing a full restoration, just make her look "better". This project became a slippery slope and the more we worked on her, the more we wanted to do a good job. I did give the frame a good look and it wasn't in need of any more help than it already got from the previous owner.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
