Talking Yet another new guy here from so cal

Hello everyone my name is chris .


I am a caraholic .
I purchased a 1976 Cherokee chief back in July that used to belong to a member here (Wesdog). That I have been tinkering with. I also have a coupla other AMC cars , so I am some what familiar with the oddities of the AMC stuff.
Tried a pic post but it did not like google photos. I am currently in the process of welding on a new roof . https://youtu.be/TFNPojJP9dc https://youtu.be/hfxgEB-eZg4.

Any way just wanted to join the fun..........

Chris

Thank you all, I am glad to finally be on the inside. I have been lurking for a few months. And have liked what I see.

the rubber strap is to secure the rear bench when it is folded against the front seat. Seems like no rear bench in your chero, the bench has a little divot to receive the strap

Nice job Chris! Makes me want another Cherokee even more now. My '77 had zero rust on the roof but much rust on the rear fender flairs though the buyer didn't even blink at that! Anyway, you now have a very nice example of this great old iron.
