Hi Beeman,

Great looking jeep!! Are you from Chennai. I have a friend who has a very similar job on his jeep. He got his done in Kerala. You may want to get in touch with him for parts. I remember him telling me that he and his dad spent hours in old gujlis and antique shops to get spares. plus his dad had some old parts saved up for the jeep serveral years back! Let me know.

Cheers,
Spyder

What Beeman calls a "sniper light" was actually a single armored baffled lamp mounted on the left fender with a long visor and a steel ring guard for protection from a stray bullet. This was called a blackout light.


Blackout lighting was a second world war requirement for night-time combat operations.

The design intention of the blackout light was:
To provide a white light of 25 to 50 candlepower upto but not beyond 10 ft directly in front of the light.

While operating the Jeep in total darkness, the light was to barely indicate vehicle position to another vehicle walking behind or in front of the Jeep yet keeping the Jeep invisible to a distant enemy.

The light had to be shielded so that the top of the low beam was directed 2 or more degrees below the horizon. On a level road, 100 feet away the light was required to be no more than 30 feet wide.

And the light was to be invisible to an aircraft above 400 feet, even while the Jeep was climbing or descending a 20 percent grade.

Congratulations on a nice restoration Beeman! A solid capable VFM vintage off-roader with near original appointments.

Ram

very very neat...i gotta get me one of those...!

wooden steering wheels arent original as far as i know...the thin 3 spoke ones originally fitted are still easily available, i think they were common to the mahindra light truck range and some other assorted vehicles...

There's this Sikh restorer of old jeeps and Gypsies in ND that I was reading abt in an article in The Hindu(Bangalore/Karnataka ed), on 13-12-06. Apparently he purchases rusted/broken down or otherwise derelict jeeps/Gypsies from various sources including the Indian Army auctions, and painfully and lovingly restores them with new engines. He even gives his customers a 1 year warranty on these, which includes a new engine swap if the fitted engine breaks down.
