    In my opinion, decals aren't needed. A basic invasion star on the hood would be as far as I would want to go. If you were to put a USA along with a registration number of random numbers on the...

    I have had the same issue until late. I had put in a recycled cable from one of my donors after the original cable gave out. The slightly used cable worked for a time, then the...

    Projects are projects for life. Money spent is an investment. Although one may never see a favorable return on their investment besides happiness or accomplishment.

    My gut tells me that it is the parking brake cable mount on the crossmember. I'll have to scour my photos and look to see if I can spot it. If not, I'll need to confirm my suspicion on our 2A later...

    The serial number looks to use MB as the prefix. The WWII Jeeps used the MB prefix. The M38 used MC, but the serial number range is too low for your engine to be an M38.
