    Well I got up at4 this morning and drove 2 hrs to pick up the A2.
    It wasn't worth the effort to purchase and restore.
    I was shown a vehicle that didn't even look like what was advertised!
    Was told it was running! 1/2 the engine was missing!
    Not one salvageable sq ft of vehicle left!
    Why do people lie! when they know your going to come and look it over? never could understand that!
    Vehicle was in Rocklledge fl!
    So im still looking for the next build!

    WOW!

    "Nothing ventured, nothing gained."

    Glad you "got eyes on the target" before any cash was fraudulently exchanged.

    Yet, had you not pursued it to that point, you may have regretted the "chance" that it was a diamond in the rough.

    I'm subscribed and awaiting you next build.

    Carry on.

    Finally was able to get back to one of my own projects!
    Started working on my own A2 again. Had it sand blasted , finding only minor rust .I welded up some cut out patches.
    I also filled 153 bolt holes in the body.
    Primed, painted every part.
    ordered a new clutch kit, front trans seal, new shift knob, 4x4 shift knob, new glass for wind shield, new signal lights, also new tires.
    I saw a picture either here or on g838 of a mutt used during Desert storm and am replicating that vehicle.
    It was from the 101 st airborne. Possible recon vehicle with 416 trailer.
