I wanted to make a new thread that deals with the riveting work on the GPW frames in detail. When I was faced with having
to do this work on my 2 GPW frames and 2 more owned by my friends, I saw that we needed to get a lot of info and buy or
make some special tools for this job. I want to show you how we did this, so that maybe more guys will think of saving their
frames (Jeeps) insted of scrapping them.
There were bits of info here and there to be found on the net. Ed Champions and Paul´s (pj-tigger) threads here on the Gee
where helpful. It took me over a year to find the right Huck riveting puller to do the blind rivets in the frame and to find a
reliable supplier of the BOM rivets that would sell them in low quantity.
I managed to find and aquire what I beleive is the most original Ford GPW 1942 left intact, in Iceland. It had been sitting in an
old mans garage for 47 years. The frame was in very poor condition as can be seen here:
