That brings up a question I have concerning GPW radio suppression boxes.
Mine has the three "modules" fused to the bracket, but am I missing some
sort of cover that would have a data plate on it? (There's a picture in
AAW concerning suppression boxes.) If so I need a source for the cover,
complete with the Ford data plate.
