Re: Grand Willys project


After many years of searching I have finally found a colour that I really like for the GrandWillys. It is Jeep Grand Cherokee colour to boot which ties in even better with donor. I was fortunate enough for the owner of this Jeep, '5.7Hemi' on this forum, to give me this high resolution shot he took in Utah.


After looking at this photo I am wondering if I should continue the factory bead that goes along the edge of the cowl vertically until it meets the guard on the angle. I don't know if it is because I extended the sill that the part without the bead looks unfinished now? Maybe I should see if I can make a piece to continue the bead down to the sill?


I felt that the gap along the edge between where the stock bead and the new sill ended, looked unfinished. The area was also a bit thin from where the rust had been on the inside.


So I cut the area out and extended the bead to meet the sill. Blends in a bit more now. I have also been working on improving the door gap as it varied a lot, especially nearer the top where the door must have over swung and compressed the edge away on the cowl.


The original sill was welded back on again after repairs and matched in well with the new section at the bottom of the cowl.


The louvers are still just sitting there as I will have to make ducting behind it to feed the A/C intake once it is attached to the donor firewall.

Re: Grand Willys project

Marcus that thing is gonna be a 100 point show winner for sure! I love your attention to detail. I just hope the first people who see this when it's finished have also followed this thread because they're gonna think Willys built it(until they look under the hood or in the cab) You really ought to try your hand at embossing a "Gojeep" panel to weld into the tailgate just for posterity's sake. I truly love your work. Keep the updates comming!

Thanks for your kind words.

I have one more embossed thing to add but wont be on the cab as run out of room without looking over done. It is on the way here from the US at the moment so you you will have to wait.

Re: Grand Willys project


This will be my last name pressing I swear! Got this Overland pressing from the US from a 1913 Willys Overland Tourer. Supposed have been part of the running board but can't find any pictures showing it? It is made from 2mm/14g steel the same as the bed will be made from, so thinking the best spot might be the front header panel. Can't think of anywhere else as the tailgate already has a WO pressing in it stock.


After a few years of searching I came across a local rear drive shaft from a 6.1 SRT version of the donor Grand Cherokee. They run a different transmission and transfercase and run a longer drive shaft as a result. Works out that I can use it to take up the difference in the wheelbase in mine.

[
It is in excellent condition and had only done 72,000km/44,000 miles so has plenty of life in it. I spent an hour or so prepping the cast steel ends for paint. Should be able to sell my shaft off to offset the cost as has only 36,000km/22,000 miles on it. These will be in demand as you cannot change the unis on them as staked in place.


Bolted it in a fitted perfectly. Was actually nearly an inch longer than I needed but there was plenty of compression in the slip yoke to take up the extra and then plenty still left for suspension movement. The driveshaft is alloy and nearly 4" in diameter.

Re: Grand Willys project


Ok, need an opinion please. I was originally going to add the louver for the A/C intake in this position but have been asked why not centre it on the side of the cowl. It works out better for ducting inside the cowl position here and is fairly centre to the flat part of the upper cowl.


This is what it looks like being centered on the side of the cowl. Can actually see the opposite side of the cowl on the trestles with it in the forward position too.


With it forward. the distance from the bead on the edge of the cowl to the louver is also the same as the width on the leading edge of the door profile also.


Another view with it centered.
Which do you prefer forward, centered or either way?

Re: Grand Willys project

I would say on the forward side, like you did on the opposite side. Can not explain it, but looks better in my eyes.
Im following your thread for some time but didnt post sofar. Very nice project and what a workmanship. If i was living closer to you, i would have liked to learn some of your skills. My deepest respect to you sir.

Re: Grand Willys project

Think the forward looks more factory as function would have been more important, rather than centered which looks more like decoration in this case. So I think I will stay with forward. Thanks for the input.
