I love what you're doing with this Willys. It's highly modified, but to the average observer it will appear to be a stock resto... At first. They will have to study it to figure out why it looks so good.
Before my Cadillac project I did a roof swap and mild chop on a 57 Chevy. It was so subtle, and smoothly merged that people would stand and stare trying to figure out why it looked so "right". You're going to get a lot of that when you roll this truck out.

Wow, many thanks Jack.

That is exactly the reaction I am hoping will happen.
Not just a couple of things that hit you in the face, detracting from the whole.

EXACTLY!!!! The whole vehicle should just grab the viewer all at once. The overall look.
