Not been posting on patina jeep in a while. Don't think nothing is happening. Been acquiring parts as I find them. Im taking some time off this month (first time in YEARS), and I plan on dedicating a solid portion of it to this jeep. Im organizing and trying to find all the goodies I bought for it over the last few months so everything will be ready to start with in a couple of weeks. A few major items are due in but I'm not sharing just yet
I'll do photos, I promise... Phone camera died and my digital doesn't play nicely with my Mac, bit I WILL find a way.
Yellow Jeep is going to get a block of time too, just don't have as much that I want to do to it right now, other than enjoy it. _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators
Gotten a lot done over my vacation but came up just short of being able to start her up and drive. About a dozen more electrical connections and bend and fit one fuel line. Other wise its about show time.
Getting the mount for the M2HB just right took way more time than I would have ever imagined. It can't be close, it has to be perfect or it will not interface with the frame brackets. Here it is (the Mutt wheel is just on there to move the Jeep around).
Final touches and get ready to put her on the trailer for a meet later this week.
The body is pretty much been left as found. Everything under it is rebuilt or new old stock. Just added a NOS in the 1951 box air cleaner. Nothing better than the original stuff!
New seat cushions and covers, lots of parts in the windshield, dash, wiring, priming system, So many pieces.
Had it down to the Tag service place today, All registered and licensed and insured.
Really looking forward to a convoy or two this weekend as well as static display! _________________ 1952 Dodge M37, 1942 MB script, 1948 FrankenJeep CJ2A/M38, 1951 M38, !942 WC-57 Command Car Undergoing factory original restoration, 1944 WC-51 Weapons , (2) M1941 Sperry 60" Anti-Aircraft Searchlight, John Deere M-gators
