The frame rails is original lenght and the grill have moved approx 30 mm forward with the highline fenders.
Front axle moved 1½ inch forward.

I like the banjo style hose fittings. They really clean things up! I wonder if they make those for SAE or metric USA boxes.....mmmmmm....

Finally finished the bracket for my circuit-breaker. I will make a busbar out of solid copper.



I have started my rockerguards.





I will make the footstep out of 40*3 mm tube with a 90 degree bend.
The underside of the rocker will be very similar to Meisers.

Welded together and I have welded the underside of the rocker.


Beginning of footstep.


And with a piece of steel on.


The angle iron on the inside bolts threw the floor.


When they are painted grey most people will not notice that they aren't stock


Tomorrow the will be of to sandblaster

I really hope they will hold up better for some abuse

Nice! And I like that you welded the corner on the back side instead of on the front side, that's slick.

Here haven't been any updates for a very long time, but some things have happened.

some pictures of my finished Rockerguard.






I have also finished my switch panel in the roof.


A very poor picture of the result.


And the backside of the panel.


Had to bee a little creative when I couldn't take it out of the car.

Now I have been home for a couple of days after this weekends competion.

The Willys worked flawless for 12 hours of hard offroad racing.

Approximately 4 km of trail with 24 special tests with very mixed terrain, mud, rocks and small very bad dirtroads.
The special tests were mixed but most of them were rocks of some sort.

Race inspection on Friday evening

Saturday
Drivers meeting 07:30
Race start 08:00
Race ends 20:00


The only two pictures I found online





We drove 6½ lap on the trail and took all the special tests on each lap
So we made 154 special tests in 12 hours.

How did it ended?


We came 2nd out of 10 starting cars in the unlimited class


It was very close on the first three places after 12 hours of racing

Nice to see some swedish

We are working on a timelaps from a part of the comp.


I washed the car a little quickly on sunday afternoon.
Not much of damage on the car, what I found so far:

*Both front fenders mangled a little, my rockerguards really helped to protekt the fenders and the tub
*Steering is a little strange but nothing big I think
*My airfilter have broken


Don't know when this happened during the comp

Engine bay looks like we have been driving in concrete mix or something.

Here is our first ever timelaps.

Youtube

Next time we shall mount the gopro higher, probably hanging under the roof, so there will be less hood and more trail.
We should also try to take a pic every 4 sec instead of every 10 sec like it is in this one.

Long time since I wrote anything here.

I have wheeled my Willys a lot this summer.

In mid July I blow my engine. No oil pressure and blown head gasket.
The plan were to rebuild the engine and have it fitted before the Ren Väg Offroad meet in the beginning of August. But the engine needed a new crank shaft because the old one were bent and damaged, it took a couple of weeks to find a god second hand one.

So to have the Willys running for the big meet we took a chance and mounted a engine that were standing in the workshop, it sounded god when we started it but condition unknown. It worked over the meet but were weaker then the old one.

Towed out to the trailer with blown engine

The third competition were canceled due to to few participants.

The forth competition were held in southern part of Stockholm.

Race inspection on Friday afternoon.
After the inspection we found out that the fuelpump feeding the catchtank just were working from time to time so we changed that one.

we had some beers and barbecue and relaxed the rest of the evening.

Saturday:
07:10 drivers meeting
08:00 first start
20:00 last finish


We started first out of 12 teams

Some pictures



Take one test with the stamp.


It was very dry and dusty.




A tired co-driver








There were a trail with 12 specialtests
We drove 12 laps.
We took all the tests on every lap except one.


We never tried this test.

we ended up in 4:th place
