  1. Hi, That sounds like a very likely explanation. Bit of a collectors item! Never seen one before. many thanks
  2. I don't think is it home repaired, the welds are very very neat. The interesting thing is the round cross tube in the seat back. ai'm guess I might be repro but strange in that all repros I have ever seen are a much better copy and pay attention to detail. Thanks for the reply
  3. Hi, Can anyone help identify this rear seat for a willys jeep. It is not original but I have never come across a seat with no swaging in the seat base or on the rear backrest frame the cross member is round tube the same size as the rest of the frame. Is it Hotchkiss, is it repro? I think it is at least 30 years old. Has anyone ever come across a seat like this? thanks for your help
  4. Can anyone else add any more information about the rear seat. The difference from a standard jeep seat is that there is no swaging in the seat base. Then on the back of the seat back the horizontal cross tube is round with studs to attach the seatback cushion. Its unlikely to be a repro because of the differences. Might it be Hotchkis? I am not very familiar with these post war vehicles. Thank you
  5. Thanks Nick, I had a feeling that the kick plate was a "field modification"! That said what do you make of the drivers seat, I am curious about the threaded hole near the cut out for the fuel sender. What might this bolt hole be for? On the passenger seat can you suggest what the bracket is for? The back seat, what feature(s) suggest that it is Hotchkiss? I have failed to find any pictures of Hotchkiss seats on the internet many thanks
  6. They came off a Willys MB. However, they do not look like standard, particularly the kick plate on the back of the drivers seat which protects the fuel tank. Also the is a thread bolt hole near the fuel sender hole. On the back seat there is no swaging ribs in the base of the rear seat. The seat back cushion where it attaches to the frame is similar design to an MA, I'm confused! Thanks everyone for your help.

  8. Can anyone identify these seats removed from my jeep. The front seats appear to have plenty of age, the rear seat less so but what mod el of jeep were they made for? Drivers seat - passenger seat - rear seat Thank you
  9. Are there any repro fabric covered looms that include extra wires for indicators?
  10. I need to rewire my MB jeep. Can anyone recommend the supplier of a good fabric covered repro wiring loom, obviously the inner cores will be plastic insulated, I just need it to look right from the outside. thanks
  11. Hi, Can anyone supply me with any more information about this Klaxon Klaxet 6 volt horn s/n K462833. Was an original factory fitment, field modification or post war fitment? many thanks
  12. Hi, It seems that fittings such as the oil filter, air cleaner, horn, radiator etc should be painted black. However, should they be gloss black or satin black? Any thoughts? thanks
  13. I am located near to Northampton so restorers in the south and midlands would be best although for a good company I am prepared to travel but Scotland and Cornwall might be a little bit far! Thanks for your comments.
  14. I have a jeep which needs a complete re-spray. Unfortunately I am not in a position to do the work myself. I would like to have all the parts stripped off and then painted - I suppose a virtual ground up job. Can anyone recommend a company that could help me? thanks
  15. Ever since being a young boy I have always had a passion for green machines. I have dreamed of owning a tank and being able to drive a piece of heavy metal - dream on!! Think I will have to settle for a jeep as it is the thing that will fit in the garage !! I have good basic practical skills but not an expert with years of experience working on military vehicles. So, hopefully when I get stuck a quick message posted on this forum will get a reply and I'll be sorted. I really do respect experience and craftsmanship. I do also read quite a lot covering all aspects of WW2, that said I also do a bit of WW1 and post WW2. Best wishes to you all.
