The paint is nice and I love the chassis detail! The exaust looks like perfection. I also like the roll bar extended to the trunk, nice detail! The engine belts look good and........ Oh! Has that thing got a Hemi? Nice.

Two things.

First, where are the taillight lenses? :blink:

And second, you have made the same mistake that 99% of people make when they build a Willys. That molded-in edge on the windshield represents the rubber gasket, it should be painted flat black.
