    M100 resto finally started

    I bought my M100 a little over 5 yrs ago - on Easter day actually - for $200! I brought it home and cleaned it up. I did a little bit of light sanding to see what numbers I could dig up. I found a USA number that started with a W - not consistent with what others have (with known "correct" tub...

    Can you get scratches out of semigloss OD?

    I have some real light scratches (they are really only scuff marks) on my M38a1. It is painted 24087 OD. I tried buffing them with a soft cloth. I didn't want to try anything else until I consulted with the forum. Has anybody had success using any other methods?

    Antenna mount ID needed

    Can anybody identify this antenna mount? It came with a bunch of radios and power supplies I bought from a fellow G503 member. It looks like a very well made mount, but not a production piece. So, can someone identify it, or did bubba make it?

    Willysmjeeps forums to be closed

    We, over at, just got the announcement from Wes and Ryan that the forum will be shutting down. This was spurred by way too many spam applications, resulting in way too much time having to be spent on administration. The website is free, therefore there is no...

    Is a CUCV right for me?

    Been wanting one since I was in the Army and drove one. Now, my old pickup is in need of some work on the brakes and interior (1992 Chev. K1500 Silverado, 305, 5spd), and now would be a perfect time to "justify"buying a CUCV to the wife. I mainly use my truck to haul trash off, pull the...
