The vehicle runs and drives excellently. A fully refurbished bulkhead is installed.
Paint matched to Dove Grey (seat box). It has a new Auto Sparks loom, and voltage regulator and all other electrics are new.New Pork Pie tail lamps. New headlights and glass indicators all round.
The brakes work very well. Machined brake drums, New brake shoes etc..
New fuel pump and refurbished fuel tank. The x 5 wheels are 5.5 wide and from a Stage One V8 NZ Army.
Tyres are new Kumho Road Venture AT 215/85R16. They have been powder coated'Arctic White'. A Toro overdrive is installed. A very good unit that makes no noise. An Aeroparts Capstan Winch is installed - no drive gear (just for looks).
Chassis is VERY solid with only a few very minor repairs needed. Needs a new rear cross member as original was cut off to be replaced with a Hilux step type. Front cross member has been notched - had a holden 6 installed before. Needs 1 x passenger side body outrigger welded on (I have a new one from Radfords) - original was cut off to allow for LPG tank. This is a very good driving project that is not far from being road worthy.
The repairs to chassis can be made without having to remove the body or engine which is great for someone that wants an immediate driver. RORO could be a good option.
