    That’s great Nathan! Glad to hear you’re making progress on it.

    I have a few questions for you when you have time:
    - Is the transfer case divorced like the M37 or is it mated to the transmission?
    - Looks like you got the front bumper and is that one of the rear fender flares on your trailer?
    - Did the seller give you any details about where the truck came from?

    1) The transfer case is separated to the transmission I believe but I would have to check again to be 100%.
    2) I don't have the original front bumper but I did buy an M37 bumper at the last meet and I'm going to cut it down to make it 6" wide to fit the frame. I did a little scaling form the pictures. The book I have has the M37 next to the XM195 and form that I'm doing the scaling. I got two m37 fender flares from the guy I bought it from he was nice enough to put those in with the truck. But I've done some other comparisons and I believe that they are the same or close enough to the XM195's you won't be able to tell the difference I think.
    3)The seller told me that the guy he bought it from told him that he had some random m37 tuck he showed up and realized that is was the XM195 so he bought it. I don't recall him telling me anything about where that guy got it from.

    Few guys here are on Instagram, or even know what it is. For the best help, you may want to upload direct to here or G-741

    I'll try to post some pics here but its harder. Also if you have a smart phone, Instagram is just like Facebook just go to the app store and download it make a blank account then you can just look at pictures. If you can't do that then I will try to post here as well but it won't be as detailed or as many pictures.

    Nathan, if you're willing, a lot of us folks who just use phones to make calls would be very interested in seeing your project here.

    Also, this board is a longstanding one, and a good place to carry the history of your work into the coming years (I have no idea what instagram is, or how long posts there last, as in can you find a post from 18 years ago on there?).

    Cheers
    Rory

    Yes pictures stay there forever and as I said I will try to post pictures here it's just a little harder. I am also making a slide show that I will be posting on YouTube, here other places when I am finished so that there will be a couple of places you can find the whole process. I'll try to keep you guys up to date here.
    Quick question if I'm posting on steel soldiers should I make a new post specify for this project or should I just continue posting on this thread?

    Start your own thread, that way you can title it as your build, and keep it all in one place.
