    I am pretty sure the M38A1 is based more on the CJ3B. gmwillyis will know for sure but I think the height of the door might be different.

    A 3B door will be taller, but the width may still come up a little short. A door from an early CJ5 would be spot on for the dimensions, but then you would have to recover it with the O.D. canvas. The Civilians would all be covered in vinyl

    Check with these folks to see if they have a door set available.

    I did find one place that carries the doors/frames, but it's in Europe.

    It is good to hear from you.

    Things had been quiet so long some of us were sending PM service messages wondering if you had suffered another misadventure - maybe the WooHooFloo had bitten you.

    Where did you find the canvas for doors and top?

    I don't know if you have been reading the mail or not, but a lot of what we learned with your 24-volt system is helping out several other guys working on M38A1's.

    We need to see another dog picture. That boy should be a strapping teenager by now.

    Glad you have gotten everything in order on the top and sides. Now on to your engine build! I second the pup pictures.

    This epic cannot end! I do believe it would be of great interest to see a picture of the final Willy's Jeep on the fly. Maybe a few words? Any chance?

    Can't wait Ira! An epic for sure.

    I just had the same problem you had with the oil line a while back. Brand new leaking at the swivel.
