Thanks for all the positive comments. All the bars are made from paper
clips. Wheels are old tyco pro and were opened up to fit the AFX axle
in the rear. Chassis holes opened up for the fronts with spacers.

Wheelszk some pics without the body as you requested




Far from done, Now if I could get Randy to paint it LOL I'd be
in good shape.

Thanks again
Kevin

Kevin, that looks so good it doesn't even need the body... but I love that too. Keep us in the loop okay? :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Here's a Willys modified I started a long time ago. Work has proceeded
slow but steady as time has permitted.

Still a lot more to do, but I thought I would share.
There are more pics here if you want to look.

Comments and criticism welcome.
Thanks for looking
Kevin
What a nice car!

Your detail work is impeccable, sir!
Paper clips!:cool:
Before I read through your post, I was wondering
what cool little diecast became the donor of those great
little parts!

Your choice of wheels is a perfect fit. I love the no-nonsense
and bare-knuckled look that they add to the build!:thumbsup:
I am very excited to see how this one turns out!

What I find so cool about these... (Yes, these! If you missed the link to Kevin's PB album, maybe if you ask nice he'll post it, or bump the post it's in)... is you can still see the Willys roots in the body, but it's taken a whole new character having been sliced, diced and sanded and sculpted to the barest minimum in areas. Every hour of TLC he puts into a build shows. The paper clip bars and roll cage are another miracle in themselves!!!!

Joe you flatter me with that post, but you also have your own nich with
what you do with those light up projects. Many thanks to all for your
positive comments.

old blue, drivers are a nice addition to cars, but many times there is no
room for them by the time you get done with lowering and chopping the body,
lucky to have room for the motor let alone anything else.

Update fubared the the paint the first time, had to strip it and put
second coat of primer on last night. Also waiting on matchbox car
to come for correct headers so another die cast will bite the dust.

Here is link to photo album

I know this is old for some but will post anyway.
Many of these are old and in need of restoration, some even look
crude today as I look at them but they are mine and I'm stuck
with them. :lol:

Thanks again
Kevin

Progress

A little more progress on the Willys. We have some fresh paint and got the
body mounted. Motor is in and headers put on. Headers got a little rusty
sitting around but we put them on any way. Just need to find some
graphics and we'll be done.



Came out well considering, but then I know where all the boo boo's
are.

Kevin
