Was driving the Troopy all of last week to work and early this week I got a bunch of SMS notifications for 9 traffic violations. The crime? Not wearing a seatbelt. The tickets are SR 150 a pop. Around the corner from my house, on my commute route is an overhead camera that also nabs seat belt...
Picked up a beater ‘84 with FF rears, PS, AC (non functioning), had the seats upholstered, painted the bezel white, and threw on some old 255 KM2s laying around on a set of 70 steelies, to be used for beach driving and teaching the kids how to operate a manual box.
Looking forward to good...
Have you tried putting a wheel spacer on your spare tire carrier? That may, just may, give you enough clearance to open the small rear door fully without any obstruction from the spare tire. I recall doing that for my 76 that was running 35” BFGs.
Very cool trip and write up.
Looking forward to seeing where you go with this. Already regretting selling my 200, if only because it made getting to and from the trails a breeze, and ate everything that came its way with ease.
Thanks for that! No new projects lately other than spending a lot of time riding motos. Got a Hilux 2.8L D4D, running a 2" lift and 285s. Use it to transport the bikes everywhere as well as being my daily.
@Lo2aY and @HemiAlex The caster shims I'll get on pronto. How simple is the 80 box...
