    Nice looking truck! Like the hub caps. "Going through Old Fort on 40 was an effort." I know a cure for that :)

    TWT -- The Wrenching Thread

    Keep the faith Ramon. If you told me a couple years ago that I'd be taking on a shop build like this 380 I'd have thought you were crazy. Yet here I am doing all the ground work for one of the largest business investments I have ever made. Odd thing is, I am not worried at all about it...

    I'd be happy to put one in a LC for you Ramon! It's just money right? :) I am already at about $65-70K all in on the 380 build. That is more than enough on a shop spec build.

    Builds A little "Sugar"

    What you said makes sense regarding the rotors, thank you. These are installed as per manufacturers directions. The direction of the inner vanes dictates the rotation over the direction of the slots.

    I've just done some preliminary reading so far. Our radio, heat/AC blower, horn, hazards are not working currently. So I figured that I am pulling all out related to motor, trans, gauges and the rest are basic electrical circuits. So on a build of this magnitude it only makes sense to go back...

    Indeed Jon, we have found everything that we already know we need. Even a complete bumper and valance replacement "it" that gets rid of the HUGE rubber sides on the American version. The European version is sleek, thin chrome. Cheap it is not at over $2K. This is a big leap for the business...

    Right there with you buddy. It's sitting right outside the window in front of my desk. Turns out that parts for a 30+ year old Mercedes are far more plentiful than a 30+ year old Land Cruiser. Seems that the folks at Mercedes believe that the vehicles they make will live forever and support...

    Go back to post #4845 and imagine it all in this :) I've been wanting to build a RestoMod that is not a Land Cruiser for a while. I also want to build something different that has not been done to death. NO TRANSFER CASE!!!! and only one drive shaft. Goal is that only the wheels and tires...

    Builds A little "Sugar"

    Sugar's finally got the correct adapter! Somebody thought a quart of silicone was a good idea for putting a T case together.

    That's what you get from people with too much time and a good supply of moonshine on their hands

    The COVID Thread

    That really sucks, discrimination based on occupation. I can understand the land lord's position but I do not agree with it. It's a risk you take as a land lord, the possibility of loss just like the possibility of profit. I left the lower FL Keys in 05 because the cost of living had just...

    Stuff in the back is not so shabby either, Art Morrison. I'll go broke building it but with any luck it'll sell before complete. Been saving a long time for this one and I have to build out a 62 and sell it first. And it won't be in a Camaro, or a Mustang, a Tri Five or anything else most have seen.
