The prior owner had bought it for parts. He was building an all original f script Ford. What I got is the left overs with lots of new parts. There was a new floor pan that needed to replaced. The rest is all in boxes. So after I get it home and start working on it one night after work my 13 year old daughter comes out in the garage and is mad that I started working on it without her. So I had her unborn all the sheet metal and pull the tub off the frame.

Very cool, I'll be sure to stay tuned.

Darryl the prior onwer had already sand blasted and painted the frame and running gear. Thanks Darryl. But now I get to start from scratch (kinda like playing with Lego's) trying to figure out what goes where.

I've decided that I will have the tub sand blasted and start from scratch. While this is being done I will attempt to bolt all the drive train together.
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.
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.
