    Might not seem like a Big Deal, but I was able to set the Body, on the Chassis. I now can measure, how far down, and back, I need to move the Drive Line. I have all of Rolands sheet metal, and Willys replacement trim, and small hard parts... Just need more time, to work on things... Still not hitting on all 8, in my Head...

    Thank you, and no, not a Cut Off Wheel, I was gifted a Brain Anursiam. Happened while I was working on this. Now my Wife hates it.... Hhahh

    I've been following along and boy, you're checking all the "perfect Willys" boxes so far. Sorry to hear about your health set back but so glad you're still here and getting better! Believe me, those big health issues can take some time to recover from. I had open heart surgery a year ago and I'm still not 100% but I'm out here in my shop mort everyday trying to accomplish something.
    Didn't Brown & Butkovich run an altered roadster with Ford FE power at one time? or am I misremembering.

    Yes, they are a Major set back... Glad you're on the mend, as well. Thanks, on my build, and yes, B&B, did have a few different cars, over the years. Still trying to have a Burger, with Tom Brown, as he is a few hours, South of me..

    It all depends on the distance back, and lower, that I can mount the engine. This was a Mock Up, for the clearance issues. It's similar, to putting 10 lbs of Crap, in a 5lb bag.....

    They did. I follow the Denver Hot Rod page, from the 60's on FB, and their name pops up, now and then. Tom, lives in Pueblo, still.

    Hey, @SOHC427
    I like it when someone presses the like button about some dumb stuff I've said some time ago, and it brings me back to a great thread.
    Back to hang out with the cool kids some more LOL.
    But came to find that you had a sich-ee-ay-shun recently. I probably don't have to say... we're lucky to be talking with you right now. I'm happy for that. All the best!
    The car is so cool LOL.
    Talk about weight transfer! :)

    Hello, and Thank you... Yes, that was a Bad Dance, I don't care to try again. Still have a few Negative problems, but back to Full Time work, and some time with the Car. As winter hits, that means more Shop Time, so Hopefully I can make some good Progress!

    My wife's sister's brain aneurysm burst. She almost died. Did the doctors detect yours before you had an emergency?
    Give yourself time. Don't let frustration bug you too much. Enjoy yourself. Looking forward to the rest of your build.

    Mine burst, on my 2nd visit to the ER... Looks like your Sister in Law, and I dodged a Bullet! Yeah, I do get frustrated, mostly Short term memory, a Stutter, once and a while, and a slow left side... It is all improving, though! Thanks Rickybop!

  20. Lucky you are Sir. I had a friend whose ruptured in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. He just made it in time and the right doctors were there to perform immediate emergency surgery. Took them twice to shock him back but he is still kicking. Sounds about the same as you with the short term memory occasional stutter and a definite limp but he is still here. Just take it slow and continue healing as he did and got back to work and retire.
