    Ahhh, this explains why Rommel was very proud of his new laser cutter doing the dashboard holes.

    To be honest my brakes worked better when the front sagged down increasing weight on the front end under hard braking, though now I can take corners without fear of rolling the car, and without the...

    I thought the information might be helpful to others, I wish I had known about them before I started my restoration.
    This is how I "renewed" my springs the first time as I couldn't find them...

    Little update, with over 180,000 views on the video MD Juan asked us back to do a more indepth video. Not sure when we'll visit yet though, I'm just a tag along and hold the camera at times.

    Thankyou.
    OK now but it was pretty harrowing being "stuck" in a pub for three days due to heavy rains - pretty harrowing hangover that is ;)

    Hey, thanks guys. We're OK. The storm hit the South, we're in the Northern parts.

    Not sure what is going on with the death toll, the heavily left leaning paper is reporting large casualties, the...

    Just to finish up this thread and give a better idea of the 'jeep' situation in The Philippines, here are a couple of photos from the other day. Scenes like this are fairly common still.

    That sounds very familiar. Combined with the cheap cost of hiring a taxi or car with driver this is why it took me over 15 years to buy a car in SE Asia. Eventually my wife found a car I liked and...

    I've stayed in LA for a bit over a year and the people high on consumables, spaced out on pharmaceuticals, or just plain spaced out/drunk behind the wheel was interesting to say the least, at least...

    Here's a video of the current Owner Type Jeep scene in one of the enthusiasts clubs, as you can guess being fully customisable people take it to the limits.

  11. A LITTLE HISTORY OF THE JEEPS IN THE PHILIPPINES (summarised from a website I can no

    Well The Philippines was destroyed by WW2 with the Japanese destroying infrastructure and vehicles as the Americans retook the islands, so at the end of the war the only vehicles left were the US...

    FYI The front half of the business premises now make "Japan Surplus" light trucks. Basically the hard to register 3 year old cars from Japan (due to their stringent vehicle laws) are cut up and parts...
  13. Quick Tour of a Filipino "Willys" Jeep factory. Also to note parts delivery worldwide

    Since I am here and the Jeep (copy) scene is still fairly popular I thought I'd share this video a friend made when we went out to MD Juan (Manila) the other week.
    I ordered a new set of front...

    Great, thankyou. It is what I suspected, hence the body being in good shape - it's only 35 years old (according to registration at any rate), so still a piece of Filipino history as the first "Owner...

    There used to be 30+ manufacturers here but only a handful left and only MDJuan and maybe one other that still do Willys shells/parts, they used to use imported shells, local made copies and of...

    Cheers, for some reason that website did not come up for me searching from here. Looks perfect, lifetime warranty says it all. Only issue is the $100 postage to The Philippines which will also...

    No VIN as the chassis is locally made and the engine is Toyota 12R so no useful number there either, dash is replaced (pic attached) with a glove box welded shut on the left there (has a swing door...

    Thankyou, I am looking forward to finding out what is really is. I do suspect it is a copy though a copy still has value here as it still represents Filipino history and has a lot of nostalgic value,...

    Hi Guys,
