Tools maybe, but NO tool boxes... Mr. Green


Okay... I know it's a gay refferance but I don't get it. I'm not sure I want to even know.


Well you DID drop a tool box on your foot at one point...

What needs to be done Rob? Can we help somehow?
Was it original military or a convert? My dad is looking for one now Laughing Laughing

How can you say such a thing about such a sensitive and forgiving group of people as us? Wink Laughing

Nice Jeep,

congratulations...if you need some stuff to flesh it out I might be able to help you. Do you expect it on the road soon? If you need vintage insurance I know of a good broker...he has all my vehicles ....be careful now...next thing you know there will be a CMP in your future....That would be cool to see marked out in PARA markings.

cheers and good luck with the project

Thanks Mate. I use the Silver wheels plan for my other car, and I will use the same for this one. I hope to have the Jeep finished for the 2011 season of living history events. Like I've said before any help will be taken advantage of. LOL.

Be careflul when you go to Silver Wheels about your jeep. If you say it is a military vehicle they may not insure it. I have had this problem in the past with them. As a result I found a broker in New Hampshire Ontario....he has done several vehicles and I was very pleased with the outcome. In fact there was no requirement to have vintage plates on the vehicle. So I put vet plates on. I would insert a pic but am a little confused as how to from my computer.

cheers
