Holy $%@# that piece of art opens alot of doors for many folks that considered the Willys a pipe dream. Seriously, how many hot-rodders have an all-time favorite ride other than the 40-41 Willys but the only reason they hold that rig so dear is they have deemed the Willlys a phantom. Hats off to you Randy for living the dream!! BYUTIFUL

With Randy's ability, he does live a dream of many. His artwork allows others to live their dreams thru the Willys parts he produces.

What is really a shame about that front end is that someone will paint over them! I'd be tempted to polish them and leave them natural. Even though Randy's work looks like it was "polished" anyway, it's just his way of wheeling them.

Man, is that front end sweet!

I remember a few years ago, Randy told me that the metal work was not done until every imperfection could be fixed with two coats of primer.

Not only is the outside perfect, there is a lot of detail matching an original under the hood.

From what I have seen of Randy's work, he is not one to skimp on any details. The 'glass front ends will not have some of the stuff in there, but Randy's will. Usually the 'glass parts are only "pretty" from the outside. They may have braces where there are not supposed to be some, and none where there should be.

BTW Advanced.... For some reason, I couldn't see the photos. Maybe it's just me.

1941 Willys fiberglass fenders

I currently have a 1941 Willys pickup prostreet truck. It has a tilt front end that I would like to change out to a stationary front. My quest for replacement parts, whether steel or fiberglass have been discouraging. The fiberglass that I have seen is either too flimsy for street use or the quality is poor (needs a lot of body work) and these pieces are brand new not used. Does anyone know of a company that has quality front end parts, fenders, grille support, and hood that would not take my entire retirement fund?
I also have a 1941 Willys pickup that I converted from a tilt front to fixed fenders. I was unable to find good solid front fenders made of fiberglass. I ended up spending a few days adding glass mat to the underneath of the fenders to make them strong enough for the street. I did have some help with a Willys builder here in Ohio with some special matting resembling something like a foam matting that absorbs the resin. It really worked for strength. It is a lot of work and really smells.
