Re: Grand Willys project

Glad to hear it. Should be back on it again in a weeks time. Been working on my other Jeep which has been neglected while working on this and want it ship shape before our end of year camping trip into the bush over Christmas/New Year

Re: Grand Willys project

Thanks for the comments. Just perfected the suspension setup on the XJ and just put in the new stereo head unit today, so just have a few interior mods left to go and back on the GrandWillys, I promise.

Re: Grand Willys project


Been sitting like this for a couple of months but there is a little progress again. Been working on my other Jeep and went on holidays and then into hospital due to back injury. Just getting well enough now to do a bit of work on this once more, but nothing worth showing for a week or so yet.


I have decided to run the 58 grille on the right instead of the 48 grille that matches the chassis year on the left. The reason is the I will be widening it and adding an extra grille slot to each side in the process. The 58 will end up with 10 slots just like the original 48 one.


You can see why they call the later style 'pointy nose'. It also looks narrower due to the extra depth in the grille, but by the time I add two extra grille slots, will look similar to the flatter 48 on the left.

Re: Grand Willys project


The de-construction has finally finished!!!
Chassis now just a couple of rails.


and some cross members and a box full of brackets.

Now a lot of time needed to clean the rails and to inspect them. Done a couple of faces already and showing none of the frame cracking or large areas of rust pitting the 58 rails had so think I will be going with these instead. Who would have thought that the 10 year older 48 rails would be so much better. I have found 4 layers of paint on them though, so must have gotten better care over the years. The 58 rails had the original factory paint only.

Re: Grand Willys project

Little update. Have the rails power wire brushed and plotting a few lines to workout where everything needs to be.



Chalk line shows how much of the bend in the stock Willys frame rails needs to be pressed out. Will be working on removing the 3* of twist it has too at the same time. The front of the frame will not move this much, it is the rear that will be pinched to get everything lined up with the rear suspension pickup points.
