Default 2020 Lock Down Willy's

As you can see I added some scale goodies but the light kit from power shift was a lot of work and time routing and soldering wire but worth it . Wanted a little more out of this one and went beyond even what I thought I would ever do. Yes I built this Willy's to sell ,had to convince my beloved to let me spend in these LOCK DOWN times.. Gonna catch up with pics as today. Only In A Jeep ,,

That's freakin awesome! The work you did on the conversion to a 3A is perfect. The color actually resembles one of the original colors, Transport Yellow. Well done!
