    heres my willys coupe I had for sale but no takers, so im finishing it up and its coming along nicely. put real willys chassis under it, willys dash, front A pillars with hinges, rear floor and fender wells, winshield wiper bulges, car looks like a steal car now, heres a little slide show of how its going.

    Great lettering job, '60s style looks authentic and reminds me of my youth at the So Cal tracks. Going to be a fun ride.

  10. The new paint looks good, usually I'm not a fan of faux patina but that is tastefully done.
