Hey all,

like i posted in newest purchases i now have a willys MB from 1942
i have made a webpage where you can see the progress so i dont have to post the pics on multiple boards.

i will post here if there are new pics, and i can also post some pics in this topic when asked.

have fun scrolling through the pictures, and tips are welcome of course..

My English friends say you left out the apostrophe in that subject line.

That is a comma, not an apostrophe. The apostrophe would denote "possesion" or multiple items.

It might be best to put an apostrophe behind the "s" of the proper name of the Willys Motor Company (Willys'), to denote this site, is that vehicles restoration page or something. But I don't think it should be a comma.

Although a comma makes it more definite as to what is being displayed.

It's a "Jeep" let's not worry about it and move on. Anytime you can combine welding and WW2, regardless of grammar, is a good thing. OP was making a joke.

hi all,
a lot is done last week. Below you see a sneak pic. the rest you can find on my website.
Next is the last side panel. and then the floor. My plan of having it painted green before the winter starts will be no problem i think.. :)

Here are some pics of todays work.
I made a bath and filled it with oil, and let the wood soak in it for a few days.
So now a large piece of the floor is done.
enkele fotos.
On the first pic you see still a lot of original paint. Im not going to remove it but just overpaint it. Just for the feeling of it hahaha

Here are some extra pics from last few days
the first is the dashboard leg. Most of the time they are rusted. So a piece of this piece is new..
Posted Image

The lower floor is also done. on the right side i still have to attach the step and a piece of wing. I tryed to keep as much as possible the way it is. So a few patches of new floor was necessary. The wood is also back in the profiles. And i placed some cablebinders..
Posted Image

Here busy with the last piece of floor. Offcourse the piece where the wood has rotten through.
