I have a few ideas though to get the tranny higher. Will keep you posted.

Hummer wheels arrived and are I already got them modified to look like steel wheels that came on a stock willys. They look good. Taking the body to work with me tomorrow to paint it's first coat. Then I'm putting the second color on and then the aging process starts. Will get some pics up when I get new batteries for the camera.

I agree... you need to PTO that thing. I'm surprised. The drawing in the first post made me doubt you. I was like; "Yeah right....there's no way it will look like that" I was wrong. Sorry. Looks like the real deal to me.

I totally understand, when I showed the drawing to my girlfriend, she just looked at me like "yeah right". I am planning on the willys wagon next and I drew up some scale drawings of the 70's jeep pickups with the wagoneer front end. I am going to build these as well.

Yep, the gladiator truck is sweet and my step dad owns the 1:1 version so doing this one will be easy.

It appears that the left front fender is about a 3/32" too high. I suggest starting over on the front end to fix the problem.





But seriously, even with all the time in the world I wouldn't be able to come up with something like that. Amazing job!
