Thanks for the welcome...I actually found it on the G503 forum for sale in Idaho. The guy I got it from has had it since 2000 and he got it from some guy from California. It is in the condition that he originally bought it in. But that is the only history on it that I have .....


Looks like a nice score!

Spent the past weekend prepping and painting the 151.....Mounted the Antenna mount and I am just waiting for a Sponson plate to mount the radio mount. Plan on painting the hubs and adding the Army makings on it this weekend if the weather works out for me.....Also ordered canvas seat cushions and the correct canvas top for it as well..

You have the antenna pulled down too tight, not good for it. You want the front part horizontal to the ground or a little above. You also need the ball for the end of the antenna. Other than that it looks great.

Yea, I will have to adjust it...I cant find the correct ball for it that people dont want $75 for it....All I can find are the small balls not the large one for this antenna and the few i have seen for sale people want insane money for them.

Is it supposed to be a NSN 5820-00-437-2353? They come up pretty cheap on ebay from time to time. The one up there now from Eastern Surplus lists expedited shipping $$$$ but it also lists standard shipping at the bottom as a possible option for about $4. I bought stuff from them before and was pleased. They also list it on their website for the same price. I'd give them a call and see what's up shipping wise. https://www.easternsurplus.net/PartDeta ... ntenna-Tip

I see a 4 latch battery cover!


Looks good!

Hambone, If you have decent canvas cushions I would be interested, especially backs.
