Well, I actually got a full build done!!!!  I switched wheels & tires to skinnier ones front and back, I thought they would look cooler. I also tossed the blower in favor for Hillborn injection. I added fuel lines, plug wires( magneto ) aluminum pullies-with a real rubber belt. I added throttle linkage too. One thing about these Willys that I never paid attention to, was the fact there is no steering linkage to the firewall...so I added that too.   For my buddy Ray Kurns...can ya tell my wife did NOT take the pics?? LOL!!  I gotta leave that up to her!!   Comments welcomed...P1012295_zps7a1a3c1e.jpg

Nice build on that Willys Derrick, real nice. I take crappy model pics also, but when I shoot 1:1 cars they come out real good.

Ha ha . Whats up with the crummy photos ?  : )  Did you have a fight with the wife ?  You best get her a box of candy. Stick with the builds and leave the photos to the Misses.   BTW  the car looks great !
