Three total paint jobs: the original "Tempered Gray", then 012 Super White, then Conniston Green. The 012 paint job was a cheapo (~$600) done by an airplane shop in AZ, I couldn't afford anything else at the time!

Good to see the old girl getting some love, lots of memories. Her original license plate is still on the wall of my garage.

You built such a venerable land cruiser that was so formative to the mud community.

It was difficult to see her in her current condition. But some therapy from Georg, Kelly and others should bring her back.

No, Henry installed the box. I did have issues with some fluid coming up through the shifter hole.

My 4BT80 that I sold had 700r4 issues. Gets expensive fixing trannies. I couldn't afford to put in an NV4500 at the time.
