    Looks like it sold: “this listing no longer exists”.
    Appeared to be an interesting project… or affordable source of WWII jeep parts.

    Your comments prompts a question…

    I would imagine genuine WWII sheet metal, or even frames, would be sought after by restorers who want to avoid reproduction bits.
    Even if you have to sand or fill a hole, I would guess they would be sought after…even at a price

    (I learned a lesson with a flimsy CJ-5 windshield frame years ago).

    Thanks Joe!

    John: Agreed. Original parts were made almost 80 years ago. They all will likely develop fatigue at some juncture, which could prove a safely issue. On the other hand, there are some cheap aftermarket that don’t hold up as well as an original part. The challenge is which are one and which are the other! So, it is kind of a gamble in that regard.

    Did I answer your Q?

    Yes, I’m just glad I didn’t have to buy a parts truck to get a good hood, side panel or windshield frame.

    While I can see why the do it, I’m not sure I’d really want an “original WWII” Jeep with an aftermarket replacement body made from 2023 steel. Nothing wrong with replacement parts, just personal preference.
