    Hey all,

    like i posted in newest purchases i now have a willys MB from 1942
    i have made a webpage where you can see the progress so i dont have to post the pics on multiple boards.

    i will post here if there are new pics, and i can also post some pics in this topic when asked.

    have fun scrolling through the pictures, and tips are welcome of course..

    My English friends say you left out the apostrophe in that subject line.

    That is a comma, not an apostrophe. The apostrophe would denote "possesion" or multiple items.

    It might be best to put an apostrophe behind the "s" of the proper name of the Willys Motor Company (Willys'), to denote this site, is that vehicles restoration page or something. But I don't think it should be a comma.

    Although a comma makes it more definite as to what is being displayed.

    It's a "Jeep" let's not worry about it and move on. Anytime you can combine welding and WW2, regardless of grammar, is a good thing. OP was making a joke.

    hi all,
    a lot is done last week. Below you see a sneak pic. the rest you can find on my website.
    Next is the last side panel. and then the floor. My plan of having it painted green before the winter starts will be no problem i think.. :)
