Fantastic looking jeep, John! The perfect amount of accessories, too, in my opinion :wink:

Sean,

Thanks, you are not the first one to say what you did re accessories, I will give make some comments of my thoughts regarding the way I did this Jeep.

Records confirm this was never in Australian service so I decided to mark is a one of the Ghost division units operating in the UK in the lead up to D-Day, after sand blasting I located bondo filled holes on the dash where the coke opener lined up perfectly likewise there was a Jeep medallion covering the hole where the siren switch once again fitted like it was made for it.

Its can be a long struggle getting a Jeep together but I am doing it again with a 43 MB which is going to be a very long road.
