Jeep CJ-7 Build

The POR-15® team is excited to showcase our in-progress 2017 SEMA Project - a 1980 Jeep CJ-7 that we will take down to the bare frame and restore and refurbish. It’s a great opportunity to demonstrate POR-15’s capabilities to protect a variety of surfaces, enhance the appearance, and improve durability of a vehicle that is incredibly functional and robust in a trail environment. This latest build exhibits the POR-15 brand’s commitment to delivering high performance coatings to vehicles from the pristine showroom floor all the way to the off-road trails.
Installing the M.O.R.E (Instagram Account) heavy duty steering box mount
Fitting the front & rear bumpers. Only required a little bit of modification to fit the new spring hangers. All holes drilled and bumpers are mounted and mocked up in the correct position. As the bumpers come from OMIX-ADA they are a direct bolt on for a most applications. Because we have larger spring hangers we needed to clearance a bit. And we got to use our favorite spark creator and grind away as needed. Of course the bare metal will be prepped and coated with out 3 step system so it'll be well protected. Definitely going to make this CJ look tough!!
After the engine and transmission were removed from the frame the engine was bolted to a stand and the disassembly began. First the head was removed then the engine was spun over to remove the crankshaft, pistons and rods. Now it's down to a bare block and it's off to the engine shop to be cleaned and checked out.
