Good for you! I think most of those people that say you can't do something have never tried or never succeeded.

Thanks for the comments guys.


Skip,
This Silver Dollar is just fair condition wise. Should be worth $350 to $550.
If I had any that were worth over $100,000 I dang sure wouldn't stick it on a gear shifter.

Default Seats and shifter installed....

I got my $25 [each] seats installed today. U Pull It specials. I had a hard time finding some that weren't electric to fit my KISS mentality. Seats are out of a mid sized Ford Explorer.

Also made an extension for my shifter and finished the installation of it.

More steps in the right direction.

Life has gotten in the way lately. I seem to be in a funk. Friends are passing away right and left.

My mother isn't doing well.

My new hip is giving me hell-o.

My daughter in law had an infection and blood clots after surgery and went into cardiac failure after going home. Thank God my son was there and knows CPR and was able to save his wife and my grand kids mother!

I have made some progress on the Willys tho. Maybe things will level off and I can get back in the swing of things.

I got the brake booster and master cylinder in its place. Got the stop and go pedals just right.

Steering shaft out of the '08 Dodge one ton modified to fit.

Got a new shiny steering column installed and fitted to my liking.

A center console with a couple of cup holders and a hidden cubby hole underneath.

Got the sun visors in place and made an over head switch panel and installed.

Then took it all apart and did the finish welding on the frame.
Sand blasted and primed it.

Paint the frame tomorrow then the much dreaded body work starts.
