I saw earlier posts about the primer color. GPW 1871 has yellowish primer. Also, I did not see where anyone mentioned the additional support plate welded on the body below the seat. I was told this was VEP only.

Just finished media blasting the air horn. I found something interesting. The air horn on GPW 1871 has yellow primer and O.D. paint. I thought it was suppose to be black. Comments?
