This is Fast Attack Willy, a project that started in November 2011. Now, finally, I am able to add the finished car to my showroom 8D.
The idea was to build a Wild Willy M38 themed FAV.
So basically this is a FAV with lots of nods to the WW M38, including; all-round Padlatraks, winch, jerry can, NOS bottle, fuel cell, roll bar foam and spot-lights, fire extinguisher, spare wheel (including a spare wheel), and of course Willy himself at the wheel.
I would like to say a special thank you to the following members;
To Skottoman - For your inspirational Willy FAV Scorcher, and for all your encouragement and input throughout the build, helping me to get the best out of the theme.
To SRB Bloke - For those front padlatraks which are awesome. Also for your baja build. It's not just the car (which is one of the best) but more your dedication and perserverence over almost two years to finish the project. I kept that in mind during this build.
To IBIFTKH - The master of Wild Willy projects which are a constant source of inspiration (have you seen his HEMTT project?). Also for showing me how to back a jerry can ;-)
Thanks also to the following members for their input and encouragement via the forum; mr crispy, madInventor, bromvw, mongoose1983, skywhelp, commiedoor, bjr250, pastimesteve, Toykid, markbt73, Theibault, shenlonco, Grastens, KEV THE REV, biggamehunter, mechplas.
A special thanks also to ModMax for hooking me up with Neal at Freqeskinz, who printed and cut the wheel cover decals for me; thanks Neal.
