  1. That is what Steviem said as well right? Prefer our ww2 stuff. for me no tupperware car either
  2. Got a nice mail from Tom Wolboldt! From Ford Dallas plant records. GPW 268872 was prepped on May 16, '45 by being crated for shipping. The assigned registration number was USA 20734628.
  3. Lifting wise, I have the possibility to clamp pulleys to beams against the roof. I plan to build a front and back attachment frame so I can hoist the frame and pivot the tub so I can access it from all sides. I can pull it upwards for 'storage' against the roof.
  4. Gathering stuff so mailing around for original body parts. Scored some NOS rebuild kits and prepping a shopping list for the obvious stuff like bearings and seals. I hate to miss parts when I start a certain rebuild job so want everything on the shelf before I start. But things like gears etc I will get after inspection/requirement of course. Seems that an original GPW top bow and a Sparton R2-14 are quite rare these days. Do you work with original parts of repro mostly?
  5. Make sure you have these butt welding clamps ready. Will make life much easier. Trick is to prevent excessive heat.
  6. That is nice Stevie! I found a place where I can do it myself on an hourly rate. Disadvantage is that it's a one our drive but probably efficient planning would limit the wasted hours for traveling. Meanwhile I found a rear seat as well so we are getting there! last big thing is the top bow next to 'smaller' items like the bumperettes, spare wheel carrier, hook pintle, etc.
  7. Always useful! No need for spending lots on money on this kind of stuff imo.
  8. Anybody aware of any shop selling these books? They are out of stock wherever I look. If anybody has them on the shelf and willing to sell, would be a hero! JP
  9. About the indicators.. a standard repro cable harness seems not to provide for these. Do you pull 2 extra cables for it? Or do you use the convoy light cables for this? (Sorry, did not study the electrical system as yet.)
  10. Other question, do you guys have a sandblast cabinet in your workshop/garage? I Consider buying one.. That one thing I am still missing for smaller parts.
  11. I will call around here in Belgium or NL first. I was at BAIV last Saturday but forgot to ask. Most impressive workshop I have ever seen. They restore tanks and heavy armored stuff for the hi-end market.. They had a '44 comet and 2 Pershings in the shop.
  12. Learning every day from your posts. 😃
