On most of our Willys we beef the chassis up pretty good because Willy owners like the horsepower.

We have tach welded all of the tubes in place and will weld in later.

tom-12-19-24

 

 

 

 

We bent the upper tube of the crossmember to hold the master cylinder and also the clutch master cylinder.

Now that everything has been set in place we've taken the chassis apart to start the finish welding on top.

tom-12-19-27

 

 

 

 

Here we took the chassis out of the jig to finish welding everything underneath.

With the bracket hanging down so far, we had to gusset the steering bracket for strength.

Jaysun has put the front shock mounts on the side of the chassis and on top of the tube axle.

Here we go again reassembling everything.

Here's the Big Al's engine getting ready to be installed into the chassis.

Well we made it! It's hanging in place.

We're making sure the pedal assembly will clear the engine.

tom-12-19-36

 

 

 

 

The pedals fit in great, but what are we going to do about the gas pedal? We put a notch in the tunnel to see how that would work.  

tom-12-19-37

 

 

 

 

We didn't like the way the pedal fit. We noticed that with a 5 speed there was alot of room for the floor to be flattened. 

tom-12-19-38

 

 

 

 

Because the upper part of the tunnel could be flattened, that will allow us to have plenty of room for the pedal.

tom-12-19-39

 

 

 

 

We changed the back half of the tunnel to match the front.

tom-12-19-40

 

 

 

 

Here the tunnel is roughed in.

tom-12-19-41

 

 

 

 

The seat was set in and the hole was cut in for the shifter.

tom-12-19-42

 

 

 

 

Now it's time to smooth out the bottom of the tunnel.  

tom-12-19-43

 

 

 

 

A little bondo here, a little bondo there.

tom-12-19-44

 

 

 

 

Sand, sand, sand, sand.
