Got round to cutting out the tool box holes in the arches just looked at lots of pictures then marked them out then cut it out with the jigsaw i also filled the holes.Also got some body panel bonding adhesive to mount my hinge. :) iv'e also cut the line on the rear panel where the rear panel is joined to the the body on the real jeep :)

That looks like a Hotchkiss Blackout Light. The shape of the lamp holder is quite different to the Willys/Ford type, although the guard is similar.

Finished up my wheel arches i took the plunge after debating if the size was right for the angle on the edge of the arch after looking at plans i cut them out.I then sanded them and then cut out a peice if fibreglass matt to the same shape as the inside of the arch then bonded that in then after it had dried i added filler thne sanded it down now ive just got to stone chip it then fit them in :)

I'm asking this question because I dont know, was the Jago Jeep ever a military vehicle ?

 

No, the JAGO jeep was a popular kit car based on Mk2 escort running gear. No doubt makers JAGO Automotive used some `artistic licence` (more commonly known as taking mould off originals) to engineer this kit. I think JAGO were based in the Sussex are for some time

Dan, what was the approx width you used for the wheel arch/toolboxes? About 11" looks about right?

 

nice work bye the way!

originally i used proper Jeep plans but i ended up making them thinner after I test fitted i haven't fixed them in yet until i get the rear seat.

 

They measure:12' wide

I've got my rear seat and all the brackets just got to clean them up then prime them then got to make some adjustments to the wheel arches as I thought I would have to that's why I haven't fixed them in :) also got the rear light brackets back from my uncle he made them using some plans :)

Update hello all I have finally done something to the jeep ! I have made a cardboard template of the inside of the tub which I'm going to line with plywood also I have been modifying the rear bumper to get it as close to the real one I removed the middle and outter parts then test fitted the bumperettes which fitted after removing an angle pice off the bumper I had a repro willys rear bumper that I got of ebay ages ago I then cut that up in 3 peices and roughly bolted together and test fitted i like the look what do you think? My plan is to make it flush by removing the middle peice of the tub at the bottom and the cut some groves for the outer parts of the bumper to slot into it will make more sense with pictures :) that's where I'm at
