This Jeep I got with the ’31 Hot Rod and almost forgot about it. This is a very fast project 2 or 3 days tops. Since the body was ½” boards and I am running low on 1/2” stock I cut it out of 1-1/2” board. I added the gear shift stick if you want to go off road you'll need one.

Thanks for lookin’

This is a nice little project. I like the color combos. What type of paint was used and did you glue paint to paint or leave some bare wood between the parts? What type of glue? Thx.

Very nice.  I like the taillight detail, you painted the outside with silver but the tip red.  Great idea.  Did you make the windshield 1/8" like the plan calls for or does it look like 1/4" to me.  Nice paint job.  Thanks for sharing.

John, I used acrylic paint and did glue paint to paint. I used CA (Cyanoacrylate) glue, it works great with paint on paint.

Cindy, no the windshield is not 1/4" it is 1/8" per the plans.

Thanks for the good words.

Good looking jeep and nice touch adding the gear shift.
I could not zoom in to see if the top was a skull or 8 ball LOL.
