body also received several upgrades by Precision Street Rods. The shop
started by installing a Kugel side-mount brake pedal system with a Corvette
master cylinder. The shop also installed a hidden radiator overflow bottle
under the dash, so only the cap is seen on the firewall. They also made
the mounts for a huge Be Cool aluminum cross flow radiator with dual Spal
fans. Precision also modified the dash by installing a working glove box
door with a mount for the Eclipse AM/FM/CD stereo system & switches.
Precision also mounted the grille, but instead of mounting it on the outside,
which looks like an add-in, they frenched the grille, making it more uniform
with the smooth lines of the body. The rear of the Willys also was improved
with the addition of frenched '37 Ford taillights instead of the round,
Precision Street Rods sanded the body seams, primered the parts & assembled the body & fenders to make sure everything was fitting together properly before painting the Willys. When they were satisfied with the results, the car was disassembled & taken to Lawson's shop, where Gary Baca did the final preparation & paint work. We probably don't have to tell you that the car was painted Mazmanian-style candy-apple red along with the frame & engine. Baca did a great job on the difficult-to-apply paint, & he also painted some of the interior parts & rollbar a light tan to match the color of the upholstery.
