Since the last uploads of pics back in Oct 06, time in the garage has been scarce but some fabrication has been done as can be seen.
Seat frames, hand brake (emergency brake for you U.S. readers), shifter mount and seat belts have been installed
The frames will be glassed to the floor at a later date.

Hinges, which were constructed sometime ago, were welded in place. A steel 3/4" box section frame surrounds the hinges and hinge plates. The hinge plates are hidden behind the hinges and were drilled and tapped to accept 10mm bolts.
The frame was then constructed from the same steel 3/4" box section.

Having no inner door skins worth using (supplied skins were a joke) and nothing to take a mold off, a plan of attack was drawn up.
Templates were made from 3/4 ply, then carefully cut to shape to flow with the bodies contour. These were then drilled and screw fixed to the body. The door outer skin was then attached in the same way.
When all was well construction of the inner steel door frame could begin.

With the bonnet fitted and the grill in place it begins to look like a Willys again.
