Feb 1949 Popular Science Weatherproofing Hint

• CATEGORIES: Features, How To, Magazine, Old News Articles

Dexter spotted this 1949 issue of Popular Science at a local swap meet the other day.  A reader of the magazine sent in an idea for waterproofing a jeep for only $.75.  Not a bad price.  Probably wouldn’t cost much more today.  Note that it was in 1949 that the CJ-3A came out with a mini gutter to distribute water similar to the role the weather stripping hint accomplishes.  I still have one of those gutters if anyone needs it.

And some other neat hints that aren’t jeep related
