Thought I'd post some cool rigs that struck me last weekend over at the Landcruiser Meet put on by Georg. Always great to see what you guys are doing and get neat ideas.

Though some of the rigs here were just light-years beyond the level I'm at! Honestly, with some of the vehicles I saw there, were they mine, I would be really reluctant to even take them on a freeway. LOL.

If any of these are your rigs----do let know, be nice to know I guess

And so...
I've always loved this year and style---the white and blue just does alot

This guy's rig, Barn find, is just amazing---the dash work is REALLY clean, solid and just the perfect blend of Old and New:

And, I'm really liking the blue barn find used here---his source of inspiration is kind of interesting...

This yellow I just really liked. I've been debating to paint mine yellow--something like this--or more of a CAT Yellow. Then again after seeing barn find's and being partial to blue....

Goblin Green.... and clean, clean, clean. Solid details everywhere. I know, it's not a Landcruiser, but it can dream, right?

The rack on this rig Georg was doing a major engine transplant was interesting. The whole thing swings UP pivoting from the bumper. I believe this rig belongs to a guy in one of those zombie groups? I could shoot myself for not having pics of really craftsman job on the Vortec in this thing. Like a glove doesn't do it justice....

Immaculate.... though I'm wondering if he dares go on a trail. Everything is just, wow, shiny. New. Showroom... I bet he'll post some nice, dirty pics of the rig and him on the kind of trail this thing is obviously capable of. Come on, I dare you! Kudos on the labor of love here... though I thought I took a front pic of this rig.

:meh: Not like he doesn't drive it in public.

This is the rig with the white herculiner headliner. Awesome job. You could eat off the LT1 engine too:



Nice Puglsey.

dave's green 40 is definetly one of the cleanest rigs around. best part is that he did all the work himself, even the paint. and he's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet.

the green bronco and yellow toy were also built by their owners; chip and ronald. great guys, super clean work. ronald is the original owner of that truck and it was all stock until a year ago. did anybody notice that the bed was bobbed? how about the fact that the bronco bed was stretched a foot?! clean work, huh?! :grinpimp:

Geez Georg, I gotta say that is one clean install on the engine. Obviously alot of little decisions/mods end up creeping in as the transplant unfolds----but all in all, how long does installing one of these, this way, take assuming old engine has been pulled?

the pic you posted is not one of my conversions. that's the engine bay in dave's green 40 and he did all the work himself. i did the vortech swaps on the monster grey 60 and the blue supercharged vortech 60 sitting next to it. a stock vortech isn't so bad, the blower added a lot of details and made for a tight layout. required a ton of planning to make sure it all fit. that one took twice as much work as a standard vortech swap. did you check it out? got any pics? i did'nt even bring my camera........:rolleyes:

if not, i have some i can post.

Yeah Georg, I got distracted with getting to the pics on the engine bays for either of your rigs! Would be real nice to see them up here... Well good, that engine is the Green Machine then. The hood was down and nobody around so nice to get the interior there....

I do remember the blower being EXTREMELY well fit into bay
