I have only met a smigeon of these folks and I have to tell you they are a mighty touch crowd to give a thumbs up on anything.
That being said - you already know what you have as a mission laid out in front of you - and I think you troopers can do a JUSTIFIED job to it.

Awsome project and well worth carrying out....there are two gun trucks I know off in the U.K. and they show up at the war and peace show in the "living history" section display. So good luck with the project and look forward to happy days and events with it.

Update,

Started installing the front winch and stripping the old exhaust and mirrors off the M54A1 this afternoon.

I'll be welding up the mirror mounts and re routing the exhaust this week(weather permitting).

The reworked 10 ton mirrors are done ,just waiting on the mounting tabs to be welded on the front grill.

I did cut a section of expanded metal for the screen behind the grill as well.

I gotta make a trip to SC in a couple weeks to pick up my M813A1 and extra parts from Ferro,then I can install the front winch and wrecker warning light.

I am also in need to 2 armor headlamps if anyone has a couple for sale.

You going to be looking for yellow headlights too??? Send me a PM on the Armor lights as I have one set left. Since I don't need em and I already sent a set to Sammy when he built ACE and then once again when Ron built Black Widow. I will dig them out.

Ive got to dig some arty stuff out for a guy in the UK tomorrow, I will grab them when I see em. I also have some amber lights if you go that route. Dont bother with the new ones out there, not the correct tint as the originals

Will do. I will also throw out there that I have a MX-2799 antenna base and a intercom system I will not be using. All are in Semi gloss paint. Stuff I have collected for years for my GT project and to only find that once I had chosen BRUTUS, well they had no intercom and the later antenna base in 1970.

Well,seeing as that is the antenna base I need for Justifier,I guess price that as well.

Update,

I finally got a chance to get the mirror arms finished and installed on the grill today.

I also finished fabricating the downdraft exhaust as best as I could copy it from the pictures.

pictures of the progress. one picture of the Justifier itself to compare it to.
