Man, Marcus.. It just looks good. All these little details that an average person will never notice, much less realize how much thought and effort went into making them subtle and understated- it's great to see what you do with them.

I really like what you do.

Hi, Marcus checking in on your progress after a few years. Youre still going ! Looks like you might have it finished in the next year or so.
Do you see any issues with registering it with VicRoads? Id assume it needs a vin & a engineers certificate ?(being a modified vehicle)

You pops would be amazed .

Needs full engineers certificate but have been building to the guidelines for that all along.

Has original 1948 chassis number so shouldn't need a VIN as not a new chassis.
Hope to drive it registered before paint and before the good weather ends.

Thought it was a good time for the engineer to come out and inspect the Willys in person for the first time. I had been in contact right at the start of the build when I was making sure I could do this project and get full registration at the end of it. So he had followed the build on my website and knew how everything was done. I still wanted him to see it though before I started with interior trim so he could inspect seat belt, seat, steering column mounts etc. before they are covered up.

Well he couldn't find a single thing wrong!

Certainly was made easier using everything from the one donor because all compatible and that it also had a higher kerb weight than the Willys.
He said fully assemble it and do some testing miles on it on a unregistered vehicle permit, https://www.vicroads.vic.gov.au/regi...ehicle-permits, and then he will finish checking everything that is not fitted yet and do a driveability test etc.

Best outcome I could have hoped for.
