Hey guys if you get a few moments check out the project we are working on here in the Ordnance Shop, you might get a good kick out of it.
We are restoring 2 of the 3" /50cal mk22 mod 4 from the Douglas Munro Memorial.
For those that dont have Facebook these are the guns we are working on, currently about 90% complete on the tear down of the gun in the background. Trying to take apart a gun of this size with 60+ years of rust and god knows how many paint jobs requires a LOT of PB blaster, heat and grunt work haha. For anyone that is curious about the history or reason behind this, these guns are at the Douglas Munro Memorial, Douglas Munro was awarded the Medal of Honor while in charge of a group of Higgins Boats saving the lives of approx 500 Marines during the fight at Guadalcanal. He used his Higgin Boat as a shield from the Japanese attackers, loosing his life at the end of his efforts.
If anyone wants to we are accepting any and all donations to try to complete the rebuilding/refurbishing project. Any help would be greatly appreciated and feel free to PM me if you want any additional information.
And to keep it suby related this is my current winter setup.
sorry for fuzzy cam, sadly I dont have any pro shots of the car, it is an absolute daily driver and have managed to rack up about 160k miles. Pretty proud that before I had done my drivetrain swap I was at 155k miles with the original clutch and flywheel
