Thanks guys! Now on to getting the charging system set up, have had this operating just on the battery since I got it running.

Hey Ez8, our MB’s were stablemates, built in the same week, maybe they were sitting in the lineup together waiting for crating or transport?

Paul,it looks great.Robert's stencils made what was a unique font easy for us to use, and I for one cannot know how they could be any better.
Your MB is in the benchmark category.Now get that Amp gauge moving into + :mrgreen:

Totally agree Ralph, those stencils are pretty much perfect in my opinion!

I cobbled together some parts on a 2X regulator, cleaned it up and painted, sanded the points, but still no charging so need to do some further diagnosis. Had the generator checked out by an old time shop a year ago and they said all good, but I’ll start from scratch on tracing the problem. No movement on that amp gauge as of now :(

I did do some work on the windshield and acid etched an LOF mark on each pain of glass. Ron didn’t have the stencil so picked up one from Kaiser-Willys. Pretty straight forward to use, I like the way it came out. I don’t have original glass but my guess is these panes have been in here for decades so just reused them.
