 Sounds like a day well spent. I notice Joe's motor pool do an upper bearing!

Mine is done but still needs a back seat [on order] and a towing Pindle 
I bet you have some really nice route to drive in your area with some nice steep hills to give the engine something to do.

Keep in touch as it would be nice to have a UK branch of the CJ2A Forum

Hi Sam,
              and welcome
Swansea is the other side of the world isn't it, LOL

As Jon said we love pictures, pity you were not closer as me and Jon live about 2o minutes apart.
Anyway if we can help you in any way just let us know as there doesn't seem to be many cj2a owners in the UK and if there is they are keeping quiet.

You look like a bit of a veteran!
I thought my CJ needed some work.
Have you got it all together? 

Plus, better hills in Wales, not many in Essex!

Another UK cj2a owner here! Only just stumbled upon this post! I've been looking for ages for a group or page for CJ owners in the UK. I have a few spare parts tucked away, and there's plenty of bits I require for my restoration! Be good too see some other UK cjs!

Hi
    The rear seats are new but original style with the short back as opposed to the long back type and is just the frame no cushions

These are being sourced by a contact I have

Give me a bell on 07470218371 and I will give you the details

Hi!
How did I miss that post? Am I too late?

Also I’m having real trouble getting headlamps, housing through to door. Also parking lights. Atlantic recon they have them and are delivering in a few days. If not I have looked everywhere so might have to swap it out for an MB grill. Don’t want to but summer is burning away!

Hope your keeping safe and well

Jon
