Wow, John, looking at the stock Willys I have in the queue (thanks to you!), you really created a killer dash. It's nothing like the kit. Awesome work!!!!

Absolutely. I think it could be refered to as 'jewelry' in some circles. Not only am I completely in XXXX'ing awe of your work, I still can't believe how short of time it takes you to create such a XXXX'ing masterpiece.

Can Teresi just get his own forum category here?! Better yet, John, start a 'Youtube' channel! I see many great builds by many talented builders, but I don't think I'm offending anybody when I say that JT's builds are in a league of their own. I look forward to NNLWest just to see what this guy's gonna bring! You never disappoint, John. Truly appreciate your sharing your techniques with us mortals. :D

add me to your long list of admirers, you are a model ARTISTE!

I do however have a small nit to pick.... your driveshaft is improperly "timed" and would not survive "real world" use for very long. Universal joint positioning should be mirrored otherwise there would be vibrations at higher speeds.

Mike.......thank you for the tip.......that is good to know.......believe it or not.......when I attached the drive shaftt to the axle and engine......I thought to put the joints in the same position but,i over looked it :( ......one of my weak points not paying close attention to what I am doing.........thanks.

I'm fairly sure you must have gotten distracted by something SQUIRREL!!! because you saying you weren't paying close attention to what you're doing just doesn't seem to jive with the models we've seen you produce.

PS. there have been a few other builders here that have not timed their driveshafts correctly either. ;)
