First willys ive done. First time ive wired a motor and much more. I over did it with the glue in some spots, unfortunatly, but for the first time of wiring i think it was pretty good.

I spent the weekend painting the willys. Its Plum Crazy Purple from Model Master with gloss clear. 3 coats of primer, 4 coats of paint, and 4 coats of clear!

Nice job on the paint I like the color. Is that from a can or airbrush?

Very nice job on the paint. I think this car looks best in a dark color, and you've proven it.

One tip with respect to the wiring; on a HEMI the spark plug boots are recessed in depressions in the valve covers, and so do not protrude above the surface. On a model they are best represented with a dab of flat or semi gloss paint where the wire enters the valve cover. Nice work, and nice use of the wire looms.
