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.





















only 2 hours of work to do that

MORE PICS



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)

Congrats! I'm scared to put together a to-do list for my wagon because I'm afraid I may not have enough paper. It's good to see it all coming together, though.

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.

VIDEO:

I don't think JF allows embedding videos, only images. You can always just post the URL...

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.

I got all the POR off my hands today...scotch-brite and some pumice rocks do wonders! My girlfriend thought I went nuts when I was painting!

You should probably use latex gloves next time...

BTW... I've used brake fluid (not cleaner) to clean my hands... but ONLY as a last resort. It will lift the layers of skin and your hands will peel if you use it too long.
