    My apologies. My brain wasn't engaged when I wrote that. You are correct about the Philippine MDJuan bodies being troublesome. I was so closed minded about the body kits, that I didn't know this outfit existed. If Brian is sold on the bodies from India, then I might need to change my thinking towards body kits, since he is such a perfectionist when it comes to fitment.

    No apology necessary. You are right about him, a perfectionist to his core. He caught me off guard with that one. In fact I was bringing him the only body parts I had remaining, thinking we were going that route... I’m excited now, it’s going to be Luzon red with beige wheels and the red stripe on the wheels.

    Now for sure Iíve gone as far as I can. Maybe I could look at early wiring. Gotta adjust the brakes. The body from India is somewhere in the pipeline, held up we think buy the Suez Canal blockage backup and covid still going hard over there. Iíve started to stockpile parts that will be needed to finish.

    You sound ready. On the beige wheels, is that color original? I was reading some debates about wheel color and am wondering how you addressed it

    Like yourself, I read up on the topic as much as I could and then there’s Brian in Connecticut who knows a thing or two. The consensus is two colors were used with the Luzon Red paint, the beige and a light yellow, probably used randomly as supplies allowed. Wasn’t it like that with the same parts from different vendors? Anyway, that, along with a few pictures swayed my decision. I just like the look and it happens to be correct, although I’m learning that “correct” in the Jeep world covers a wide spectrum.

    Awesome. So, in conclusion it's the same stuff different century, and whenever the canal shipping starts flowing normal life is good, and we don't know why but, my how original colors are correct to see on a resto. Love it.
