I would recommend spending time reading thru all the old forum posts. There are some really large postings that are very detailed on how they did the various item. not many books other than the manuals that tell you how to take things apart and put them back together. All the how to fix broken parts are more likely found in the forums than in any book

Hi,

Go to the sister site “Jeepdraw” and download the TM’s and SNL/ORD9 from there.

That will be a good (free) starter.

Yes get all the TMs and read them.
Get AAW.
Military Maintenance for MB/GPW 1941-45
Of course read Jeep Draw
Ren's jeeps; that might be a video; can't remember but I have it somewhere.

Thanks for all the replies! Sorry, its my first time restoring a jeep. My question was focused to books that may have some pictures or something that might help with my project. My father is travelling to the States, so its a great opportunity to buy some books, maybe from amazon or somewhere else.

I found All-American Wonder vol. 1 & 2 very helpful. I would like to get vol. 3 which has lots of photos. Portrayal Press has some bundles available and many titles to choose from.
