Default French Wagoneer


I love Grand Wagoneers, but they are not really usable anymore. As I want to drive my cars, I looked for a Wagoneer. Not an easy task in Europe.

I found one in Italy.
1987,160 000 km (who knows), new paint, good engine (as far as I could check).
But plenty of small things to solve.
Still it was very expensive.

The aim is to build a usable and very desirable Wagoneer. For road use.

My priorities are

- change the wheels (what did they do?)
- put Maxxis Ma-1 (?) tires with the white strip (are they any good ?)
- repair the seat (any advice or source for the fabric) what is a reasonable cost ? I plan to use fabric from the lower part of the door panels, behind the door Pockets.
- change a side passenger mirror. Can I buy a black replacement and just put back the chrome cover on it ?
- charge the AC that is empty (since ?) how would you proceed ?
- do something for the windows they are veryyy sloooooowww and need help to go up for some of them
- change the locks as the keys are lost (i have the one for the neiman). I bought a set for the 2 doors. But what about the boot ???

annoter question. Does it look normal ? Not too high, in the back ?

well, plenty of things to do.

I love the front of the wagoneer with the split headlights. The one from the movie "The Burbs" is the jeep that made me love that style can't wait to see it built
