Customizing a Landcruiser for Overland Expedition We are very happy to announce that Laser Cutting NorthWest will sponsor the building of our overland expedition vehicle by providing state of the art technology and LCNW creative input. Our part will be to provide our own labor. This is a great arrangement for us because we still get to build our cruiser. LCNW is located in Auburn, Washington, here is their website LCNW - Laser Cutting NW We arrived in Auburn, Washington on August 17th, the following day August 18th, we got to work at the LCNW facility building our cruiser. Our plan is to be here until September 1st (14 days). This is what we plan to accomplished: 1. rebuild the camper shell so that it is completely made of aluminum. 2. build a fuel tank made of aluminum and relocate the fuel tank to the center of the cruiser. this will reduce the weight of the cruiser and improved the current design. There are other things on our list that we want to accomplish if time permits that is to redesign the bull bar and build a running board. our ambitious plan is to post daily updates on our rebuild. we want to thank ih8mud and the community for all your support. our journey started at ih8mud so we thought it would be appropriate for the first laser cut to be ih8mud mud flaps (see picture), we hope you join us over the next 14 days... enjoy.
