I haven posted in this forum for a few years now. Life etc.. The amount of talent that is here now is mind bottling.. ( VGG ).   Anyway, I had picked up a couple resin '37 Willy's pickups off eBay on the cheap years ago. I had planned on building a version loosely based on the Silver Dollar Willy's Gasser pickup. The project never took off and there the resin sat on my self while l did other builds for eBay. A couple months ago l decided l wanted to build a Willy's Gasser, but l just wasn't "feeling" the truck version any longer. So, I chopped off the front fenders off of one of the resin trucks and put them on the AMT 1940 Willy's Coupe. Here is where I am so far. I hope to have it complete and for sale on eBay buy the end of January. Thanks for looking all comments are welcome. Jim image.png.30cab213f6194e02c695570b50607a44.png

Jim U, I like what you're doing with the Willys '37 front end, a great new approach. Suspension seems correct too, looking just fine!

QUESTION please;  how did you do the gray-looking finish on the rear wheels of the Willys?  They look a lot like this type of finish, just I haven't a clue on how-to.  I'm looking for a dark and unpolished Halibrand magnesium wheel finish....like this;

Your wheel appears to be the right direction....thanks.

Hi Mike, Thanks. I used Apple Barrel acrylic paint from Walmart. I mix dark grey and black until l get the color l want. I hope this helps. Jim
