Gonna manufacturer combat wheels and not the stock farm truck wheels shown here. Also no
Mickey mouse spot lights. Want combat look. That's also why we put fuel and water cans on her like the m3a1 where supplied just 6 months later.

That is the early model then I'm building , but very cool to see, those are M1 or some call them T9s, it did cross my mind to make one of those, but I fell in love with the sloped front grill on the M2A1s, and the back fenders like a street rod, I'm an old streetrodder .Thanks and keep them coming.
