Sorry to hear of the rough patch you have been through and are still in. Don't be ashamed of spending time in the shop, it's good therapy for the body and soul.

Good advice from zz. Fortunately when we look back we remember mostly the good times. You are making good progress on the Willys.

Life ain't easy at it's best but all this nonsense is hard on this old guy.
Thanks for the thoughts.

Got the frame painted a dark gray [or is it grey?] instead of the same old black.
Now when I put stuff on it hope fully I won't have to be taking it off again.

Tomorrow I can put the engine/transmission back in for 3rd or 4th time.

Nice work on the frame Pops.
You only have to worry about the vowel in grey/gray if you live near the 49th parallel. You are at least a thousand miles into the 'gray' zone.
Keep on tinkering.

It always feels good to be at the point of final assembly.

Thanks guys for the interest.
I managed to get the engine installed hopefully for the final time. It looked like an awful long distance from the transmission mount to the tail shaft out put. It would probably be fine but I decided to mess the paint up by making and installing a removable cross member for the tail end.

All I lack is finishing!!! Still hoping to get there by Christmas.
We'll see how that works out for me.

Grey is good! It's what I did on the Packard. You're probably right on the extra crossmember, if you get into some heavy stuff in 4 wheel, it could do some damage, lots of twisty forces working on it.
