I've been wheeling most of my adult life about 35 years. Last few years I have been building and using my 89xj. Now I'm in the process of building a 46 Willy's buggy.

Mine changed just this weekend. Decided to push the grill out a couple of inches and lengthen the hood so I can mount the rad in front, to simplify everything and maybe keep the fan noise down.
