The following five (5) pages depict the sequence of restoration beginning with the body off.  All the pictures from the "Before Restoration" section documented the purchased condition of the jeep.  These pictures show the 'rebirth' of #55511.  I have included the date of the work when it was completed.  A complete log of all time and expenses for the project can be accessed from the HOME page.
