Ciney Nl

Very nice restoration ! Congratulations
:o
But for the sake of accuracy, Ciney and its nice beer are in Belgium, not in the Netherlands.
The giant Militaria Expo is over there and you can have a Ciney beer while shopping for military stuff...
This is where I met your guys of AUTOPLACHTY NEKVASIL :wink: .

Hi Yves, I'm so sorry I somehow got it wrong, :-) thank you for the praise, it's a pity that the Ciney expo is canceled, I was really looking forward to it and now before finishing the jeep I would need to buy a lot of small things there, just canvas straps, those from Nekvasil I don't like it very much .-), so maybe in the autumn we will meet there and have a beer :-)

You could contact Philippe in Gerpinnes, just a little further to Ciney for you :wink:
He is the best man in the world. He has many original parts and he proposes reasonable prices.

Contact here;
https://philippejeep.com/contact.html
English is ok with him.
Better to shoot him an email with your requirements.
He is my favorite supplier and located very close to where I'm living. So only advantages.

If you need gears pinions etc .., he has a link with an Italian manufacturer for gears made from the original drawings.

Hi Yves, thank you for the tip for the perfect site .... I will definitely use it for shopping, I need a NOS fuel gauge so maybe they will have it, I tried to order it from Army Jeep Parts and it didn't work :-( I didn't even answer with regards Milan.

.. so again a slight progress ... and the first ride :-) and rides great .... the first Jeep in which I drove as a co-driver for the first time in my life 26 years ago, the first Jeep I ever bought, and the first Jeep which I drove for the first time in my life yesterday :-) it's a very first time ....

I'm missing the right NOS speedometer( Motometer,King Seeley) and NOS thermometer ... if anyone has for sale please let me know ..... :D

so in the end it turned out well for Army Jeep Parts, and even the order has already arrived, so great joy :-) and the order from TJ Zackman(thank you very much) radiator seal set arrived, and it is already installed :-)

I'm still looking for a NOS speedometer, does anyone happen to have it for sale ...
