Welcome to WF! I am stationed in Germany, but I have Sky TV. One of my favorite shows is Wheeler Dealers; Sky re-ran the Willys MB restoration last month. One of the hosts, Mike Brewer, said it was cheaper to buy vehicles/parts in America and ship to the UK than purchasing originally in the UK. The other host, Edd China, restored the MB...it reminded me of what Beastmaster is doing to a '43 Willys. I am sure he will welcome you to WF as well; hit the link on his signature block to keep track.
Once again, welcome to WF; great group of Jeepers here.
