Willys is painted
« on: September 19, 2013, 04:41:46 PM »
Hi all,
 well the Willys is painted, now for the lettering. This winter the motor will be assembled, and if all goes well, hit the streets and track next spring.

Plan for this winter is to not do much to the dragster, and start on the 49 Chevy Gasser, I have a long way to go to get to your point.

Looks awsome . Can never go wrong with blue.As I tell everyone even god likes blue.Sky blue water cover 2/3 earth and for most part is blue.
Relecting obama is like shooting right foot because it did not hurt enough when you shot left foot

Company for the 33 Willys gasser street car, a 49 Austin A40 pickup. Future plans call for a blown on alcohol small Chevy in front of a automatic transmission.

well I put some vinyl lettering on the car to try and get it to a show, Didn't make it. Now I will redo the lettering this winter with some oneshot and gold leaf. I'm going to make the black shadow larger and also increase the overall size of the lettering too. I'm going to order a new front axle from Ron Pope that is a few inches narrower than the one in there too
