It's both a nice feeling and a proud moment when a new restoration hits the road.
Looks like you even shaved for the occasion :wink:

Yeah, gotta get me one of them too! I'm looking at a "radar" cap at Sportsmans Guide right now - $15 for 3!

Thank you. It took a lot of work. Than buying new parts so I rather try to renovate the old original parts to the most original Jeep. I also renovated the 90% of all screws.
I also bought Dodge M37B1 that I renovated. More photos from renovations to http://10th.rajce.idnes.cz/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Here is another photo and M38A1 from 1954 that I renovated for a friend Hary. We do SFGA 10th serving in Germany.
