Can anyone guess where the grill is from?

I think the mud is going to bring the whole build together!

Looks great Doc. You have done the workers at the Toledo assembly plant proud . Yes they built the Willys car there before they built Jepps for the war effort.

Thanks, Andy, and thanks Donn. We'll see what happens in 2013. Only the new year will tell what kind of madness will run in my blood. Plus, there are rumors of an impending article in MCM that is supposed to rock the styrene world! LOL. Well, I hear it's like some sort of World Wrestling Federation "DEATH CAGE" type of match . . .

I looked here and didn't find anything about this RUST VS SHINY all-out brawl! ;):lol:B):rolleyes::blink:

If you were'nt the master at weathering, I would say leave it shiny and clean the tires. The eyeball needs to stay with. Another master piece, I love it!!!

Cool build either way, doc. Of course, I prefer SHINY :) :) :)

It's Friday!! Pizza, popcorn, and WWE Smackdown. Spent the day building. Does life get any better?

Love it Virgil !!

Looks great.

At first I thought the tires were too big. But not now. After a short while, I decided I like them.

( I would add just a tiny bit of dirt to the fenders and around the bottom edge of the car.)

LOL, and nobody says anything about my lovely Miami Dolphin socks. HA!

Thanks, everyone. I will add just a little bit of mud all the way around. I am finishing this sucker today.
