Well it's been awhile and lots have gone on, although NOT to plan. I am not going to go into it right now but to sum up Willys is still in primer.
June on the Isle of Man is TT so the Willys is back on the road for some much needed cruising. First stop is Ramsey sprint day, an 1/8th mile Dragrace event on the promenade [bikes only].
Our newly formed club the Manx Drag Racing Association set up a stand and displayed some of the machinery which will be racing at our first Drag race event in Sept this year.

A couple more pics of the dash.
Dakota digital supplied the gauges, Ebis Engineering of Douglas, Isle of Man made the billet insert to my design. The idea is to copy the custom front grill on the Willys.
Built at home the fibreglass dash is painted in, what will be the final colour of the car, Lexas Tungstern Mist paint. The final touch is an original "Willys" dash logo.

A couple of update pics.
First stage of the fibreglass fan shroud which has improved cooling efficiency by around 15% during normal driving.
Highway temp before installation was 190deg F, after 160 deg F.

Also fitted the electric exhaust cut outs for those open exhaust moments
