have done the lights indicators for the grill and head / side lights fitted just need to do the  indicators in the back lights will draw out the wire diagram for you when i cut out all the rust will post the damage for you there is a large number of drilled holes i need to weld up for you there is going to be a lot of body filling and sanding for you the body filling is better going over the red primer. Have put all the bolts from the parts i take off with them so it will be easer for you to rebuild your jeep

Speaker I think as I removed a heater earlier,  it's moving along nicely now fingers crossed the axles aren't to bad although judging by the rest of it I'd be surprised,  better get cracking my end now,  biggest job I think will be the hood,  hinge repair plus oil canning,  then the fenders, grill, seats, windshield.

Great work Jerry,  although we've lost quite a bit there is still a lot of original material there,  my aim was always to preserve as much originality as possible,  tell taffy to turn the psi down,  what do you want me to do with the step, are mb and gpw's different?

Anyone tried one of these from JMP, seems to have a flick switch inside to convert 6v/12v as required, Jerry would this work with mine keeping an original finish?

the regulators that can work 6 volts or 12 volts and are solid state inside are great however what i have found and you should know is that jeeps and dodges and more that use the same type of generator there are two types first is a FIELD EARTHED and the other is a ARMATURE EARTHED there is no way of knowing which one you have from the out side you need to strip down the gen and cheque it out

After a bit of a brake from jeeps ( putting down some concrete out side workshop ) this weekend i have been stripping down ready for blasting both of the axles i have never seen a diff that was full of grease how it was still working i will never know   the pile for cleaning is getting bigger and bigger, only 2 of the wheels that are combat rims and they took over two hours to strip  so much rust i had to cut the tube from the rim hope to get it all to Taffy the blaster next week then i can start on the engine and gear boxes

a foot note about  the grease in the diff it was so thick i filled up the diff with some petrol/derv mix and put the drill on the pinion nut to wiz it over to soften the grease so it would sort of run out  when its back from blasting i will remove the pinion and wash it all out and cheque the two pinion bearing and oil seals

Well I guess it was better than none,  hopefully the grease has had some protective valve,  those combat wheels sounded a challenge   are they original rims Jerry
