    Not at this time. We had discussed it and I have chopped several other projects but for now no.
    Micky has a pretty good eye for the lines. We have actually figured how to lower the roof two and a half inches and not really chop it. The roof area over the doors and the windshield /back window can be lowered and not actually chopping it. Just not sure I want that look. I do not deny that I love the original look of the Gasser Passer.

    Picture caption
    Anglia /Prefect Gasser bumper kit. Some assembly required. 650$ plus the ride.
    Just Kidding.
    Ok. Got the bumper for Prefect built and installed.
    We are going to send both bumpers to powder coating when we start doing the final paint /etc.

    Actually gonna powder coat it chrome. (Metallic silver). The front axle on the Willys is done this way and you can't tell it's not chromed. Figure the front axle will probobly get it also. Chassis and underside will get the black out treatment. Got a lot of masking to do for the front part of the chassis.

    Running brakelines and tabs. I am OCD about neat bends. Tabs at Right angles and just correct flow. I'll be doing touch up paint on rear end. Wound up mounting tabs at different points for the flex lines for the rear disc set up.
    Come to the conclusion I probobly can't do production work. To damn picky. No pictures. Not real exciting stuff but makes or breaks a car. People don't want to pay for that though.

    Ok through with brakes. The pics sure don't do justice. I am knit picky about the way I run things. Yep I'll finish painting now and you won't even know they are there.
    Word of warning. Throw every brake washer that is not copper away. I had two of those stupid aluminum -or what ever they are made of -washers that no matter what you did would not seal. I am not cool with some of the junk I've seen in the some after market caliper /banjo fittings
    Also got gauges in. I'll be running a digital removable tach. And before you bust my chops over this. Number one it's set up for the mag. Number two it's paid for. Three its removable so I can keep the dash clean.

    Thanks. Tach was supposed to go in our fed. But it now resides in Oklahoma. Tach was there and it's paid for. That thing was expensive. I've seen more than one race car that didn't have a tach. Lol

    If this car has to go thru NHRA tech those brake lines won't pass. They have to run outside of the frame, thru it or be inside a steel tube where it passes the flywheel area. It can't run across the firewall if above the flywheel.

    Good looking install though.

    Not finished. It will pass in flying colors when I am. Not my first and all of my cars have passed in the end. Front engine rails are as knit picky as it comes from the NHRA.
    The Final assembly on the front axle. Installed kingpin end caps and packed wheel bearings and seals. Put in all the grade 8 bolts and locking nuts. Still got to paint. Lol

    Test fit trans pan/shield and cooler on dummy case. Cooler will be mounted to trans and will be hard lined. Will clean brackets up tomorrow. My reason is simple. Short hard lines,all mounted to the trans means everything moves together if it moves at all. No leaks no problems. The cooler does not hang down lower than the pan. Micky used a similar set up on all our front engine rails.

    Ok got the brackets trimmed and cleanedup and the first set of hard lines are done. Will use two line clamps at the mounting brackets to garentee no vibration issues. Will duplicate this and put It on both Willys and Prefect.
    Will be a while before I get back at it. Work picks up/starts getting hecktick again so will be back to weekends onlY. Summers over. Crap.

    Got another set of hard lines done for the Willys set up. All are identical as all the tranny for all three cars will be identical.
    Also weighed the Opel the Prefect and the Willys.
    Opel 1213- less motor trans and some other stuff
    Prefect less motor trans 1433
    Willys 1932 all it lacked was the doors and interior.
    That is just as they sit now.

    Got a new window regulator for the driver side door. Now my window actually works.
    Also built a set of rolling stands. Kinda like being able to slide under at will and work on em and move em easily in shop.

    You just need to move down here and make the number of gassers bigger in this part of the world. . Yep it gets hot here and contrary to popular belief it gets very cold also. But we don't have a lot of snow and a little secret. The shop has central heat /and air. Lol

    We are also close to Columbus Air Force base. But by county roads and Satelite this place don't exist. Nice and actually peaceful. Early in the morning and late just before dark if you look through the right places in the trees we get a free air show by everything from a B52 to some of that weird stuff that everyone says doesn't exist lol. And don't forget t the Ten Tom waterway if you like fishing hunting and speed boats. lol.

    Ok finished the roller/or rolling stands. Now the Willys is up like the Prefect. It makes things a lot easier to work on from the bottom side.
    Got some more hard lines built for the transmissions since we are gonna have three of them alike.
