We have slow progress on the Koenig hard top for the 53 cj3a. The back door being completed in addition to the tub.
Awaiting completion of the front doors and then we are good to go for the paint.

After all the work the cj3a has been painted and has a Koenig hard top installed amid the lockdown situation.
Next we go for the electricals and completing the paint job.

Atlast, the cj3a is completed and running.
The engine died just before we could relax.
The engine was opened up and rebuilt after 25 yr.
After few hiccups, she now runs well and is back on the road.
The Koenig hard top looks good though I feel a bit cramped compared other jeeps that I dont have even a soft top on.
The 53 brought in another 1952 cj3a, that's under restoration.
Posting some pictures of the 53 cj3a after the restoration.
Thanks to the great forum and members for all guidance and help.

That looks great!  Good work!

I can see how that Koenig top would feel cramped; the windows are very small and the roof line is pretty low.  These are very small vehicles compared to anything modern.
