Post by gearhead » Sun Jan 15, 2012 6:09 pm

My June 45 GPW afte repaint. The non factory OD was so thin it was begining to surface rust and some prior owned did not bother to prime it either!
So it became a USMC GPW!

Totally agree with Chris. If that was mine, I would have kept the "original" look.

Mary Frances is aganst restoration of the last MB. She REALLY likes the hardtop and white paint! I'm working on her. Of course we could do a nice paint job like your GPW and leave it at that.

Nice looking JP, the original look was sharp, but the new look is nice too.
