Sorry to hear about your mom may she r.i.p.
Glad you are pulling through the rough time. Sorry you lost your mom.
The car looks amazing.
Is that a tile floor in your shop? Nice!
Belated condolences here also, Jim. The Willys is looking great. Nothing short of amazing considering what you started with. You're a metal magician of the highest order!
Amazing build, well done!
Jim so sorry about your Mom. It looks great.
Sorry to read about your Mom.
Good to see you back on this.
Holidays suck. I’m thinking a day of making windows roll up might be better than thinking about lost family.
Hang in there brother. I am thinking about you and yours.
Well, I made a little progress today. Trunk is all pretty , as is the engine compartment. The real deal lexan race windows that came with the car when I got it are in and the drivers door works perfectly. All I have left is passenger side door and window adjustment, and fix the scratches I have put in the car during assembly.
The car is looking great Jim!
Jim, you don't know me, but please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your mom.
Been watching you build the Willys..."forever".
Your time and effort sure made for a good one!
It looks great. Love the color.
Roll with the punches. Takes a while, but it gets...
...oh, bullshit. It just sucks...period.
Only thing that seems to really help is not being alone in it...and knowing it.
Looks nice Jim. Congrats on a great little hot rod.
Tried to get a good shot of the whole car. Can’t wait to pull it outside where I can take it all in.
Man, that is a fine looking automobile...
That is an awesome save! You sir have talent!
The Willys came out great Jim, sorry to hear about your Mum.
That is a GREAT looking Willys.
Sorry to see your Mon passed away Jim. Loss of family is always felt worse at Christmas time. Your crazy Hamb family are here with you watching the Willys come together.

could be a close cousin of yours
except for the lump of iron sticking out the hood
Wow, it's beautiful, like a piece of art.
Just listed the car. I found out on Wednesday that I need open heart surgery and I am going to be laid up for a few months, so my car needs to go. I am lucky to have this option, and I have pieces to build another one, so off it goes.
Sorry to hear that Jim. You gotta do what you have to do! Good luck with the surgery, and remember you have a lot of people here pulling for you! Please keep us posted!
Thanks greaser. Getting old sucks.
Wow my triple bypass was 2 years ago and it's working fine. Went in just for a checkup and the doc said OPEN CHEST NOW just from looking at a blood sample. It was done before nightfall and out of the hospital in 5 days drove myself home.
The leg they took the new sections of arteries out of was more of a pain in the ass than the open heart LOL.
Thoughts your way Jim.
