If it's OK to put pics up il do it here, if not please move.

After building the chassis did a dry run with the body before paint, this is my wife's and mine, we use it as a posh tractor I'm afraid.

Lada is all up and running with its 2L twin cam.

Image

And here is the pinzs, constantly been washing her down, it's been over the muddy fields daily.

Image

So I'm hoping over the next couple of weeks she will be fighting fit again with a new colour.

That's a superb collection of three very different off roaders
And a brilliant number plate on the 130

Thanks lads, keeps me out of trouble, the plate was a nice little find.
More stripping of the pinzgauer today, the only thing that's knocking me for six is the price of parts, as they are still being used in the services around the world, the money is crazy, i.e. A clutch slave cylinder, from PUCH is nearly 300 notes, now we all know it's a 30-40 note part to buy. :cry:

Four new OME nitro charger shocks and an OME steering damper fitted and some mud flaps for the rear.
Then took the old girl for MOT and she passed with just one advisory

I have indeed John yeah I'm really impressed with the OME stuff, I've noticed a huge improvement in road manners since they've been on, it's made the truck feel much more stable

Cleaned up Jimny inside and out ready to sell. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I have had to buy a car that my daughter can get affordably insured on, as she has recently passed her driving test.

Not advertised yet. Still thinking about how much.

In the process managed to find all sorts of stuff I'd thought I'd lost.
