06-22-2010 05:17 PM Willys - Tilt Front
I applied a few beads of the Panel Bond on the saddles and clamped them into place on the body. I also used screws through the saddles and into the wood body reinforcement to hold things together until the adhesive set. The saddles are now in place and work can start on fitting up the tilt shell.

06-22-2010 04:59 PM Willys - Tilt Front
I'm starting work on the one-piece tilt front for the Willys. Outlaw supplies two "saddles" that mount to the body in front of the doors to support the rear fender portion of the tilt shell. These were sanded down with 80 grit paper, along with the corresponding areas on the body. To permanently attach the saddles to the body I used the 3M 8115 panel bond adhesive.

01-13-2010 03:52 PM Willys - Finished Brake Plumbing
A few more photos of the completed brake lines with all clamps installed. I'll install a heat shield on the portion of the exhaust pipe where the rear brake line passes above it, and also some high temperature sleeving on the line itself to make sure the brake fluid doesn't get overheated.

01-13-2010 03:43 PM Willys - Roll Control & Brake Plumbing
The first photo is another view of the front brake line. Still to be installed are the clamps that will secure the line to the frame.
The second photo shows the finished brake line layout at the firewall and roll control. I ended up using a straight bulkhead fitting for the rear brake line instead of the 90 degree fitting shown in an earlier photo, and running the line parallel to the front brake line. Also seen is the hydraulic brake light switch. I will also have a mechanical switch on the brake pedal. The two switches will be wired in parallel so that the brake lights will still stay on if I engage the roll control and let my foot off of the brake. The last port on the roll control is unused and plugged off.
The third photo shows the finished lines with hold down clamps installed.

01-13-2010 03:30 PM Willys - Roll Control & Brake Plumbing
The firewall has three bulkhead fittings: The top fitting is for the front brakes, the middle fitting for the rear brakes, both of which are -3AN, and the bottom fitting goes to the clutch hydraulic release bearing, which is -4AN.
The first photo shows the front brake line coming from the master cylinder to the inlet port on the roll control. All stainless steel tubing, nuts, and sleeves were used. The roll control comes with three outlet ports. Unused ports are plugged off.
The second photo shows the trial fit of the outlet tubing to the front brakes. I mocked up most of the bends and did trial fitting with inexpensive steel tubing, and once I was sure of the routing, I duplicated it in stainless.
The third photo shows the almost completed front brake line from the roll control to the front brake tee. I need to dip down low on the frame at one point to avoid the steering universal and then come back up to get over the steering shaft support and motor mount.
