we are getting the first of the armor ready to go back on, as we are starting with the front cowl section that builds off the already installed fire wall
we managed to find a set of NOS window armor shutter stays, from our friends at Garry’s half Tracks. As you can see, these are yet another shade of OD Green, and came out of a 1943 marked box.
Also, readers might notice pitting, particularly on the bullet deflector on the top cowl. We have found areas of pitting, and decided that instead of replacing all these parts, that we would do a factory level resto, but, keep her story intact by including the scars and souvenirs of 70 plus years of life.
