Glad to see that old chisel getting some use! You might as well finish painting it! You have a pretty farm... oh, and the parts look good too.

I don't see it flaking off...its on the underside of the dash, it will see no rough use, just acting as a sound deader. Besides, I used POR's marine clean, and metal ready before I used the Dupicolor. I also roughed it up with 60 grit real good. I also had to do some trimming the other day where the stuff ran when I smeared it on,, and I had a hard time with a razor blade. We'll see it it holds up to times test

The dash and topside of the cab, and the A pilers being body color ("craftsman red").

I did some painting of some small things today, I did a few things under the dash Craftsman red, just so I would have some contrast. I also painted some of the block off plates, and "mock fit" them in. The "theft deterrent" device I also painted, and mock fit. I even installed the instrument panel, just for kicks (will have to come back out for painting though). Heres some pics.

PICS:



















Heres a pic of my lock out hubs, Dual-matic hubs.

Looks really good Man, 1 Question. I've seen that style of hub before but never close enough to see how they function. What's the trick to lock them in? Just Curious. Thanks

To lock Dual-Matic hubs, you have to take a screw driver and pry the sticks that are running parallel to each other up (they are hinged) then you spin them 180 degrees (both of them) then tap them back in like you found them with the other end of the screw driver. These hubs are the MOST POSITIVE LOCKING HUBS EVER MADE. Also the strongest, I think. I saw a set going on ebay for $200+ the other week.

OK, so yeah, working on the floor pans right now. Used more of the Dupi-color stuff tonight, and "smoothing" some stuff on the floor pans with short strand fiberglass bondo.

PICS:






















The POR stuff might be being sprayed in this weekend, if all goes right.

I purchased WAY too much of the sound deadening / heat insulation stuff from JC Whitney. I have a huge roll of it here. If you give me the dimensions and pay for the shipping (maybe a couple bucks if you're feeling good - but not neccesary), I'll cut you some for your floor, firewall and for the area between the roof and headliner. Let me know. It's the stuff that's dense material on one side and the silver refelective stuff on the other. If not from me, I highly recommend the stuff.

Also, you might want to buy a couple rolls of JC Whitney's silver tape for the insulation. It really cleans up seams and ends. You'll also need HD spray adhesive for fabric. JC Whitney sells it, but you can get it at craft stores or fabric stores.

Did a lot more today...I went out at 8 this morning, and quit at around 6 to go to town get some more stuff, and eat, then kept working from about 9 till 11....what a day!

Today I did mostly bodywork, and replaced the thermostat (again), got the engine running; planed to "move" it under its own power, but it isn't starting again....try again tomorrow. I really shouldn't be a critic...note all the circles in one of the pics below, those are dings, which im going to have to ether glaze or putty (bondo). I have no pneumatic body tools right now so the work is exhausting (and slow), but I will have huge, strong arms when im done right, LOL. It looks like I will have to do 3 or 4 more days of what I did today (amount of time) to make the body look "ok"...but OK is all I want - com'on ITS A JEEP! I also updated my ---TO DO LIST....now a little smaller, yay!

PICS:















I also installed the clutch petal, and the gas petal. Brown came with a shipment from 4 Wheel Drive Hardware today...rubber mounts and some ther bits...I only got 3 of the 4 mounts.

Looks great! I'm really envious and am really glad to see another old Willys pickup saved! There aren't enough of them left. And not enough that are left in near stock condition. Good work and I'm looking forward to more. You gave me some good ideas for POR 15ing my 3B!
