      Hi friends.....last week after getting my Willys....i found the battery was discharged. so got the battery charged at battery shop to find that alternator isn't charging. opened the alternator to find that the commutator were in bad shape and one carbon brush was broken. since it was a specialized job so had taken it to a local service guy and in his presence i did the repair works.....now he has become a good friend.The alternator is charging again and fitted back. In addition i also changed the voltage regulator with Lucas one as the old one had fragile electrical cables which might have given trouble later. The carging is now highly stable and nice flow of current. the engine is more smooth now as it is getting full current and voltage.

      Here are some pics:

      Love the old horse and admire the attention that gets bestowed on it. Please put as many snaps as you can. The jeep is droolworthy.

      A great find today....finally I could find the original cork oil sump gasket...not one but two. Picked up both for just 200/- INR. Had been looking for this since a long long time. Now I can fix the oil leak which used to be very embarrassing at times as Jeep use to mark her territory where ever it used to go. Heres the pic-

      After a long time...started some work today on the Willys...this time trying my hands on paint work. Idea is to refresh my painting skills as its been really long time since I painted something. Bought Putty, Body filler, Sand Paper 150 grit and 320 Grit, thinner and scrappers. It costed me mere INR 400/-. Scrapped the rough parts and rust on the body, it was really looking shabby to drive it in this condition. After rust and rough removal applied first coat of putty today in the morning and after 4 hours did the first sanding with 150 grit sand paper, cleaned it nicely and applied second coat. The second coat has started making the difference and body looks quite level with certain deep patches here and there. Tomorrow will again sand it and apply third coat of putty and so on till its all level. Here are few pics -

      THIS IS HOW IT WAS BEFORE WORK STARTED-

      Hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I am enjoying doing it. DISCLAIMER- This is not part of restoration, its just playing with the Jeep before the final restoration.

      The jeep is turning really well with your hard work.
      I wonder about this Disclaimer. Whats the final restoration actually? If this is just playing around?

      And what did you do with those rust holes?

      P.s- A small suggestion. Buy a wire brush for drill. Costs merely 200. And makes childs play of removing rust quickly. DO NOT use wirebrush without eye & Face protection. Small wires will fly like needles. Wear thick clothes too.

      Well the final restoration would be removing the tub, remove the engine, remove the gearbox, transfer case, differentials, road springs, all wheels, all nuts and bolts, rubber beadings, windscreen, seats.....scrape everything, professional painting, new wiring, original speedometer, upholstery, folding top hood, new MRF NDMS tyres, decarb the engine and replace what ever is necessary, do up the gear box and transfer case. Restore the Jeep to all stock condition with correct measurements and material. As of now I am collecting the spares for the restoration....in the mean while playing around with it to teach my sons the beauty of this marvelous old generation vehicle, like my dad taught me....pass on to next generation. The jeeps gonna be in family forever. A million dollar question is when? Well to be honest I also don't know, yet to find a mechanic of my choice who doesn't throw tantrums and show attitude and works on my liking....soon will finalize and try and do it up in 2019.
