I might want to ad that the ORIGINALS were lead coated. The cover was not coated. I pulled the one off my 44 GPW and wondered why it was so dull after bead blasting it. I used electrical Knock-outs to fill the holes left when I used the hole punch. The junction block was from an old electrical service and not original. Really easy to knock together.
Many thanks to jeep-draw for the plans, Jon has been a life saver to all of us.
Cheers

Neither of those two internal connections appear correct to me. As Paul has already stated his bakelite insulator is not correct, lloyd is missing the floor stud by the looks and the large capacitor is missing on both.

You are correct Sean…

The capacitor (filter) in the upper middle is:

WO-A-7600 filter unit, .5 MFD, for the radio terminal box.

See, even the generator between the seats has a bloody filter.

cable connector

Were the cable connector (dont remember the correct term on this part) pressed on or were they soldered originally?

Here is an unmolested 1945 GPW Radio Junction Box. The ground stud is in the lower left corner of the box with star washers. Box is lead coated as Paulie pointed out. It looks like the one Svenn posted.
