Back at it again, the cold weather forced me back in the garage. Mounted the tail gate a few weeks ago and got new hood blocks this last weekend. Working on the finishing up the gear shift next. Unfortunately, the passenger seat frame I found turns out to be to big. Not sure if its off a 3a or b?

Your windshield frame is from an M-38, maybe that seat frame is too.  Note how the front cross tube on your driver's seat frame is welded on top of the two front-to-back tubes.  That's what your passenger's seat frame should look like too.  I have an M-38 passenger's seat frame in Ol' Unreliable and have been hoping to find a 2A frame.  No luck yet...

BTW, your Jeep looks great!

Finally made it though the winter. I finished my gauges, went with a VDO set. i wanted something that fit with the back bezel and face of the originals.  I ordered a new fuel gauge because I wasn't sure a VDO would work with the sending unit.  Also got the high beam indicator in.

   Russel,

   Your willys is sure Sweet. When the body looks so nice, they are worth washing up and keeping clean so they show the luster.

   How is the steering after the bellcrank rebuild ?

   ( I resoldered my fuel tank bung yesterday with no-explosions ) ! amazing.

   It will be years before my little '46 will get a Dupont overhaul.
Those new gauges look buff against the orange tangerine.

    Nice work, and it was a pleasure to look back through this thread.

     Len

Probably jumped the gun a bit but the weather was nice.  First time out of the drive way since I got it.

Very exciting day for you. Congrats on the "drive" !!

   It is a treat to have a street-legal billy-goat.

   In the "end" if there is one, we probably invest the same amount that it would cost to replace with a nice side-by-side. are they a UTV, ours are WILLYS.

Made a little more progress.
Got the chrome headlight rings installed. Working on the crossover tube to put a 'correct air cleaner. 

Finally broke down and ordered a passenger seat frame.  Got the seat installed.  You can just see the rip in the top of the drivers seat. I ordered a new one from Beachwood Canvas, hope to get is on this weekend. 

Finally outside. I will do the wheels next. I found some CJ5 rims, these stick out a little far for my taste.

Do you still have it around that you can help me.
