M38A1 paint...clear coat??

Post by jnissen » Mon Nov 18, 2019 9:10 pm

Looks really good. Good to see younger guys get involved. My son and I just finished a 1955 M38A1. We would do a number of things differently if we could start over! I’m sure you have areas that you would like to change as well. In the end it’s your vehicle so if you enjoy it that’s the bottom line.

We’re now considering adding a trailer as the next enhancement. ImageImage

Nice projects!

Surely in the future I will upgrade my jeep between other projects!

It would bug me as well; but you learned a valuable lesson at a very young age.
