    all of the fixtures are good but no damn lenses and got voltage to the things and the dimmer indicater is right and works but no darn lenses

    I wandered around eBay and looked at "M38 dash light" and related stuff.

    Here are some listing numbers:

    303141348025


    263911369858

    113722393986

    283473898234

    There are some lenses, a socket, and just stuff in the lot here.

    And, as for the new friend ... "Awhhhhh, cute".

    Good find LarrBeard,

    A lot cheaper to purchase the piece parts, then the big price for what you don't need.

    Great looking puppies!

    This eBay vendor guy has a lot of interesting stuff:

    bluemoonscooter11

    Bits and pieces of MB/GPW/M38/M170/Power Wagon. It takes a while to sort through the stuff ...

    "...hi/lo only kicks in when foot switch used.."

    That's the way it should be. My grandson couldn't figure how to shift high/low beam on the truck since it doesn't have a turn signal handle!

    I saw 10, 24-volt panel lights for $10 somewhere but I can't find them now ... Let me poke some more.

    It kind of helps if you don't care if you can use the tire again...

    Works for us!

    A pilot friend of mine once said any landing you walk away from is a good one - and the company is happy if they can use the airplane again!

    Lighting Accessories

    Here is stuff you may or may not be interested in. I wish I could find a set of halogen or LED headlights for the '48 - that would light things up a bit better.

    Nice old Ford holding down the jack! It looks like some solid Detroit iron.
