Man, is that looking good!
Nice to be on the downhill side isn't it?
I look forward to finished action shots.

|firepainter||Teaser shots before I had to remove the front sheet metal because a few stripped bolt holes in the bell housing. Dang it.|
|03-06-2014 08:57 PM|
Made some progress, fresh coat of olive drab.
Now to finish the rest of the parts.

No prob, it took me a while to figure out all my holes too. (ew, I don't like how that sounds out loud, sorry)
I came across a site called Jeepdraw that had diagrams on everything you could ask for on G503 Jeeps. For $2 a each, this guy in Australia can send you drawings on hole patterns, items you can fabricate, etc. My anti-virus program doesn't like the site but I have used him and I can assure you he can be trusted.

|firepainter||Good catch beastmaster.|

One thing though, if I'm not mistaken, I think the rear strap bracket goes on the inside. I think it attaches using the bottom bolt for your forward top bows bracket.

Mocking up hardware to see if there is too many or too little holes.

|Beastmaster||Looks great, coming along nicely|

|firepainter||Impressive, if I had everything there it would still take me fore than 5 minutes.|

Cool, you are doing well but I'm on your tail.
It's a race between the Willys and the Ford!

Before and after the sandblaster. Looks like I got some hammering and welding to do before a coat of olive drab.

|Beastmaster||Nice, sandblasting makes things allot easier.|
|01-11-2014 11:16 AM|
Body and wheels off and ready to go to the sandblaster this week

So today was slow at work so I disassembled the light housings, sandblasted them then they got a coat of etch primer. The black out lenses that go in the grille also had 70 years of paint on them aswell. So I resurfaced those as well and got them looking decent.

|JKBrad||What a fantastic piece to start a project with. Too many guys are starting projects with pure junk, then giving up. This one looks great.|
|12-12-2013 06:17 PM|
|demarpaint||Subscribed, I like it.|
|12-11-2013 01:59 AM|
Cool, another one surfaces!
Looks like a nice solid project. I look forward to seeing it unfold.
|12-07-2013 09:00 PM|
Last week just to give me hope I stripped and painted the grill.
I ordered the paint from Army Jeep Parts.
