Been a while. So I got new tires and a new fuel sending unit and fuel gauge. I also removed the add on turn signal mechanism that had a ton of wires that were not connected to anything.

Oh and I painted the spare to kind of match the others.

Looks sweet. I've always wanted a flatty. Maybe someday.....
I always loved them too. Just never thought it would happen as they are not a practicle vehicle and I wasn’t planning on having a garage queen at the moment. But the situation was right and it fell into our laps. So I had to jump on it. Glad I did.

We have a new Jeep dealership that opened up in my neighborhood, so I decided to take the 3a down there and ask if I could park on their “rock” out front. They had a green JL parked on it and they had to disassemble some of the rock as it was fiberglass sections hiding the ramps. But they did it willingly and asked if they could take some pics of the Willys on the ramps as well.

Well a local magazine (Ashburn Magazine) included the Willys in an article they did on antique vehicles in the area. Here is the page with the Willys and a couple of other pics taken but not in the article.
