Re: Grand Willys project

Lukla is crazy. Back when I was training for my pilots license, I would occasionally take a brake from practicing ifr and practice landing at Lukla in vfr on my flight simulator. It is crazy landing up hill and then parking in a tight 4-spot strip. Have always dreamed of flying in there one day.

Re: Grand Willys project

Still trucking mate! Looks great still. I love the meticulousness, thats only way to do a project like this. Have you ven though about things like color/wheels, what the final product will looks like? That sketch in a previous post was pretty cool looking.

We were very lucky to get in at all to that airport.
This is a video I shot after we landed of the plane taking off again.



It deserves the title of most dangerous airport in the world that a TV show 2 weeks ago named it.

For colour I am looking at a bronze with a pearl in it. Prefer to use a Jeep version if I find some thing that grabs me like the latest compass.

Called copperhead pearl. There were some Wrangler shades in the bronze too that were quite good. Trouble I have is over here is finding one in the flesh to look at in different lighting conditions as not many Jeeps sold here.

For wheels I will most likely run a Smoothy with an original Jeepster cap in the middle.

Thanks for all the comments guys in this update.

Might be slower while I do the renovations, but happy wife means happy life.

Re: Grand Willys project

Thanks for the comments.

Just bought some headers. They are to suit the 6.1 HEMI but are only 1/8" larger in the primaries than other 5.7 brands that cost 3x as much. Will move the max torque up only 500 rpm, but the longer length of them will bring that back down again anyway. Will help compensate for the tight bends close to the flanges too and the difference in size will help it work as an anti-reversion plate. Fortunately the D shaped ports are slightly bigger all the way around than the 5.7 round ones, so no flow restriction. Was not worth paying an extra $1000 for the smaller primaries. These were half the price compared to buying the header flanges and a box of stainless bends as well.
Will fit them up once they get here in a few weeks time.

Re: Grand Willys project

Might not be able to work on it right now, but doesn't stop me thinking about what I need to order from the US in the mean time.
Just ordered the Mopar/Corsa cat back from the US as was $1000 cheaper than buying it from the dealer here including freight and duties etc.

So jealous... The Twin Otter is by far my favorite plane... Too bad I changed my career path to IT. lol.
