Them picts are so cool. Outstanding JOB. My first jeep was a Korean War era jeep. Many a time over the years I have wished that I had done what you have. I can't even imagine the research you've had to do to get it right.
The only thing I had done to mine was light cosmetic work and just enough mechanical work to get it to run good. (Plus I had to get rid of all the "ARMY" stuff and convert it over to "Marine" Stuff. LOL). I later donated it to the local VFW where I lived then.
Thanks again for the picts.

I just read through this whole thread....WOW, amazing, incredible job Beastmaster!! I can't imagine the personal satisfaction that brings.
You have 2 green jeeps, I have 2 yellow :-) One old, one new. Pretty cool!
Hope you can keep posting pics as time goes on with any other mods/projects you do, they are worth all of us ogling over!

Oh, I've been meaning to post my latest restoration project. I have an old wheel barrow that's over a dozen years old. I was trying to decide if I wanted to scrap it and buy a new one or try to fix it up. Well, with some left over paint from my Willys' restoration, a can of spray on bed liner and a new tire, I don't think it came out half bad.

I've heard about it, sounds like I need to check it out.

Not to take anything away from our Wrangler Forum, but have you checked out the G503 forum? Nothing but restored military vehicles there.

Tell you what, I'll try to swing by outside the gate this weekend and get a pic next to the "Air Force Plant 44" sign (ya, google it and you can figure out where I work).
Check out some of the threads in the Military Pic Forum. Lots of cool military looking TJs there.

|Gord P||Having never built or restored anything myself, I can only imagine the sense of satisfaction that you must be feeling. For it to be something with a historical significance must make it that much more special. Again, congrats on your accomplishment and good luck with any extras you decide to do.|
