On a somewhat related topic, my GPW doesn't have combat rims.... At first I figured that someone along the way put solid civilian (CJ2a) rims on it, but someone told me that because it was intended for use only in the US during the war that it might have had solid rims form the beginning. Has anyone heard of that scenario, or do you think that it had it's combat rims removed at some point?
Yup. The chemical dipping place is in Santa Fe Springs, CA. I talked to the guy there for a while on the phone. He seemed to really know his stuff. I bet it would be great, but it seems so expensive compared to sand blasting....
