Ya, and they're allot lighter lately since I run topless 90% of the time.

It was my first restoration project so all I used was some Krylon I bought from Ace hardware.

On more research, I'm going with some paint made by GCI coatings (shade 33070) for my Willys restoration. Its a much better paint and more period accurate. You can get it from Arpyjeepparts.com. It's roughly the same price and they give a discount if you order 12 or more cans.

Thanks
I believe the main differences are the tail gate and the lights. The civilian version has a tailgate and 12 volt lights. The military has no tailgate and 6 volt (later 24 volt I believe) lights. My trailer has been heavily modded and has a tailgate (a real "bubba" job) and the blackout lights are long gone in favor of 12 volt civilian ones.

It's a little rough around the edges but I see potential.

I'll post pics as things progress (things will be slow due to time constraints)

very nice!.

Thanks

In most of my pics, I had Covercraft covers in the rear and Smittybuilt seat savers over cheapie seat covers in the front. I'm currently running Trak Armor.

Thanks, It's amazing what you can accomplish with one arm and lots of free time (I'm at home recovering from rotator cuff surgery). I just finished phase one of my trailer restoration, here's what I did:
  • Checked and re-greased all fittings
  • Repaired and improved sloppy tailgate mod (it didn't originally have a tailgate)
  • Fixed spare tire carrier (formerly just a large bolt, replaced with my old carrier I had laying around)
  • Sprayed on undercoating and bed lining
  • Replaced trailer hitch with removable lunette ring
  • Re-wire lights and replace reflectors
  • Re-paint body and put on WW2 markings
  • Purchase Tarp and Jerry cans
More work to come over the next few years, but it didn't come out too badly.

Here are some before and after pics:

Before


After
Note: Not sure how old the First Aid kit in the last shot is (it was on the trailer when I bought it) but it may be original equipment.
