The plan is evolving all the time, and I am open to suggestions!
While the contours of the Willys are not all that different from a jeepney, Americans tend to be quite a bit taller than the typical Filipino, which is why I need to raise the roof. I'll also square off the back end and add a little bit. I'm not sure if I'll square the front window area or not...
Most jeepneys are open, but jeepneys in Baguio where the weather is cooler have windows and doors. Mine will need to have these, I live in cool, wet Western Washington.
Vehicle will be used for parades, intercultural events, Filipino-American festivals etc
