Yes a hole saw was used.
Fabbed bushings, 30 mm internal diameter, 5 mm thick.
Same as the ones used at the rear.

OK, now I can say I´m happy with the color...to be honest I did not like the way it was, to shiny...so I asked them to paint it again.......now it looks like a WW2 Jeep
Shocks were installed, only thing left is the drag link and to bolt the seats.....for sure next monday will go home...

Looks much better not glossy. I think military vehicles always do. Came out nice! Love the frame setup you did on that, wish you were closer so I could bum ideas off it.

That rig is a work of art.

I have a picture request. Can you take a picture straight from the side. Either side. I'd like to really see how it looks with the cowl/hood stretch. I've been considering the same approach on a future project of mine.

Thanks

Thanks.
Yesterday the "baby" arrived to home.
Now is time to start wrenching alone. On the coming weeks I will be working on the wiring, fuel lines, brake lines etc...

That MB was the inspiration of my project, I dont know how many times I have seen all the pics I have of that Willys.
If you check the post of my build at twistedandes.com (Chilean version of pirate4x4), you will see that the first pic I posted was Graham´s MB

Well, it has been a good week.
I had been working in different things.
Brakes: I decide to bought all the brake lines, fittings, etc, of a wrecked 2001 Cherokee. It was cheap and easy to work. Actually the rear end line was a perfect fit, only thing needed was to give it the shape I want. Also I bought extended steel braided lines, wich are on the way from the US with a bunch of other stuff.
Secondly was to solve the clerance problems of the TB/water pump neck and TB/alternator mount. I just cutted the alt mount, so an idler pulley relocation bracket will need to replace the stock mount. In the other side, I cutted the neck of the WP and I´ll weld it in a different angle.
Also I connected the Art Car shifter.
Finally gave a good bath to "him", in order to clean up all the dirt it collected after 9 months at the shop.

Still waiting the engine harness to arrive and a few other things...., like mufflers.
Also I forgot to tell to the guy from which I bought the harness, that I have Corvette injectors, so I need to change all 8 conectors
In the meantime, I finished the hydroboost lines...
