    Hi folks,

    I just saved a non-running 68 Jeepster truck from a slow death sitting on a Horse Ranch. It last ran about 10 years ago. After changing all the necessary fluids and a carb rebuild, It Runs!!!

    Now, I'm trying to find all the necessary rubber components ( window rubbers,shifter and transfer rubbers, half-cab rubbers, etc.) so that I can get it painted.

    Also looking for web sites where I can see pictures of what the factory seat or seats look like? My truck has a bench seat w/ headrests. I don't know if this was factory installed?

    Anyway, thanks in advance for any help. I'm sure I will be asking you folks a lot of questions.

    Clickey link-([URL="http://www.jeepsterpartsdude.com/]Jeepster Parts Dude[/URL]) aka Jeepdog should be able to help with most of the rubber seals. The shifter boot and TC rubber he may have some used ones.
    The bench seat was not used in the Jeepster, they were low back buckets whether it was a standard or automatic. Automatics also had the center console. I was going to send you to the Half Cab website but I see it's not up and running right now. Trying to think where there's a picture of the original seats, I don't think I have any of mine. I lied, I found one. Not mine, this is in a Vert but the same seats.
