Why would someone go to all that trouble to build a 130 and then ruin it like that. I just don't get it. As much as I hate this particular rover it is still better than that pink range rover a few posts ago. That thing was aweful.

Ironic that someone complains about real 110's being imported into the states and this Euro-trash POS auction is still being allowed. I mean where is the consistency here?

I hope that the malcontent that got the other auctions pulled sees this.

ITs actually just all laying together. I have to take all the body parts back off for prep and paint soon but this cold weather hinders preping in a garage. I prob. will have the bulkhead painted over the winter then everything else in the spring. Then I can at least get some of the stuff up and running.

Maybe it will be ready in time for the '04 D90 Get Together?

Better keep an eye on it as you are building it... it would be a drag to get it all together and realize you cant back it out of the garage because its too tall.

Good one Chris. Thats why I have the little donut tires on it. The thing looks jacked with those 3" springs right now with no weight in it. I have my fingers crossed and my walet on fire right now so I can have it ready for a d-90 group run in 04....
