So how about you post some pictures of this prototype or some of the other cool stuff hes got, Enlighten all of us jeepers. Im guessing that this is a MB ww2 prototyoe of somesort. I have seen some pictures of those -Too cool! Its real un-common to find classic jeeps, other than CJ's, down here. Thats why Im building a Command-J7. A commando front end onto a CJ7. Ive been buying parts all over the country to build it. And hey Ive never even seen a commando in person until last week. Great build! keep up the good work!!
Well...the body work is coming along slowly. Tedious as it is, it has to be done.
Just a lot of pics....(I have filled a 4 GB memory card in 3 months....do I take too many pictures or what! with a 12 megapixel camera!) sorry about the quality of some of them, couldn't get the camera to focus right.
this is another patch panel I made awhile ago, it'll go in tomarrow.
restored the gauge cluster...Did that back in May...
the TO DO list is getting smaller
I have found a radiator, should be in by Wednesday, maybe. will be spraying POR-15 on Labor Day, if the body work goes smoothly...I also could use about 6 guys helping me in about 3 weeks to mate the cab to the frame (a weekend of course)
Well, Labor day didn't go by without me working on the Jeep again this year. Last year I organized the hundreds of parts I had in baggies this year I worked on getting the engine to start easier I made my dad take a video of me starting it after "guessing" the timing so I could start it with greater ease.
Take a look at the pics of the 1950 P/U in my signature line. I have decided to sell it for $1,500, but looking at your project, is kind of getting me in the mood to finish mine. Very nice job! I had a 3 piece chrome front bumper that looked really cool on her. Believe it came off a wagoneer. 1 of the pieces got bent in the rollover, so I had to replace it.

OK I have finally gotten around to using POR on the bottom of the cab...and a lot on myself.
I only applied one coat. I am going to put a truck bed coating on the underside to act as a undercoating. The reason I left some unpainted, and the reason the floor pans are out (again) is because I thought it would be easier to paint the underside of the floor riser, and I left some unpainted, so I can weld the pans back in, without grinding the stuff away. The top half is going to be body color. I also didn't do the rockers because I forgot abut them...
things are coming along slowly now...school, sports, girls...you know but things are coming along!
Very nice work. Hate you though since I have fallen so far behind on my projects. Looking at yours making nice progress and mine just sitting, man I hate you. Just kidding looks great. Great color choice too. That's going to look sweet when painted for sure.
