I certainly will . . . I spent ages reading through so many posts on G503 before pulling the trigger.

I need to sincerely thank every body who contributes here because without the knowledge, I’m sure I may have purchased a dud from the start.

This place ensures I knew what I was looking for and was at least armed.

That said, I have so much to learn but I’m finding the more I drive it the more I learn and I just love wasting hours “tinkering in my garage” now.

Thanks again everyone,

Michael

Hi Guys,

Congratulations Mike. I to am a recent GPW owner. Picked mine up the end of last August. I can’t wait to Get on it. It’s pretty beat up but actually very solid. I plan on getting it as straight as possible and replace as little as possible because it’s mostly original. I just have to sell off a few more items from my last hobby to make more room in the pole building.
Good luck 👍🏻

Nice Willys.

Are you going to join AMVCS or are you already in a club?
Next year is Year of the Jeep at Corowa NSW. Would be great to see you there.

Cheers,
