GPW120671 update

Post by Ed Campion » Thu May 14, 2009 9:41 am

Hi all,
This is just a quick update to let everyone know that I finally have the hood numbers and stars painted on the jeep, the unit numbers will be applied shortly. Also on Tuesday May 19, 2009 the jeep will be appraised and have the out of province vehicle inspection done so the plates, registration and insurance will follow shorty after. Thanks to all who have helped me get to this stage.... and a BIG THANK YOU to Jon Rogers for sending me the hood numbers and star stencil files!!!!!!
B/R, Ed.

Ed.......
It turned out just perfect mate....
I wonder if the Gee blokes know the amount of trouble you have been through doing this jeep ?
The frame completely disassembled, new sections of the frame re-manufactured, all rivets replaced with the correct type.
All the body panels and parts made by you and the many years you spent doing all that.
To see it now at the stage where you can drive it legally on the road gives me great pleasure...

You're a Master Craftsman, and deserve all the kudos , Very Well Done !

JR......... say G'day to the family for me.....

Wow, you re-riveted the frame!? Man, that even tops a frame up restoration! David
