Re: [MV] Original or Repro

Years ago the repro parts were all junk, or barely usable, having been
made really cheaply or for "foreign" armies that were more cost conscious
(you should see what's left of the brand new French "pull-out" lightswitch
I fitted to the Carryall)

These days I still here some complaints, but I bought nearly all
reproduction material for my current GPW, and the quality of wiring,
temperature gauge, and general fixtures and fittings (Genmark) is quite
good, in fact the (MV Spares) wiring must be well up to the original

Go with whatever makes you happy, keep original fixtures and fittings for
later re-use, but if it is more patch than original (like my GPA hull)
bin it and make or buy.
