If I could restore my 110

So I am sick of mocking horsey boy. Well not sick enough that I will stop but we need some new topics so I want to start a thread for the NAS 110 owners where they can discuss what their ideal resto would be. How they would set it up etc. I know some people have done a ton of work but everyone has ideas so I figure I will start first. This is if money wasn't an issue and it only applies to NAS 110s.

Galvanized Chassis
Disc Brakes added to rear
Repainted Alpine white - done correctly so rivets are not painted
New doors including a new style rear door
Mantec tire carrier
Wheels painted black
Cage painted black
KM2 tires (not sure of size)
Bilstein shocks
Genuine HD springs
TD5 dash with new AC front and rear
Tuffy box with CB
Exmoor G4 seats
Full rubber interior - genuine
300tdi engine hooked up properly to dash
New style locks so the ignition key opens doors
Stock 93 bumper
Stock 93 rear lights
Euro side steps

I think that is it. Oh and the truck will be full of hay for my horses

That is basically the look I want but black cage and wheels.

I have a shiny new rear door already but no money to paint it.

You can actually do a pretty awesome job with a rattle can if you take your time, do some good sanding, and use multiple coats. Did you get some of those tower paint ones on the group buy? They actually work really well.

I bought a couple cans from tower on my own a few months ago. I painted some hinges with them. I have too much OCD to paint anything. I end up redoing it a 1000 times.

New door is awesome.

I'm confused. Does that mean you'd put $$$ into a motor without thinking about where or who could actually service it, if at all?

I don't think JohnsD90 even has a defender and he thought boosts wheels were made by toyota.

As for my truck I would like to galvinize cappings and bulkhead but worry about paint sticking.

One other addition my vent flaps will be painted black to match the NAS plastic ones.

If I had to do it all over again, I would do the following with the bulkhead and other galv parts:

1) Remove paint with chemical dip to preserve the smooth surface of the metal and ensure inside cavities are stripped.
2) Galv.
3) lightly blast surfaces to be painted, then prime with zinc primer and paint as normal.

At some point, I wouldn't mind doing a NAS 110 to an original-spec restoration just to do it and try make a perfect, functional truck. All the 93's seem to get restored to more modern specs.

well not anymore, and i meant buy the TD5 and figure out how to service it yourself, that was about it. No alternate meaning. And I know now that Boosts are LR wheels, they look very similar to a set of toyota wheels though.

I was just kidding around. I am not sure a td5 is serviceable without some computer

I would......

add a Series II windscreen and roof (nice and "squinty" versus high forehead look),

keep it flat fendered and remove the flares,

if possible a recessed breakfast like a Series if it allowed a good engine to be installed,

and full external cage.

This would have some of the modern upgrades of the 110 in a classic iconic 109's clothing!!

Pure Awesomeness!!

If money were no object... and the wife wouldn't throw a fit... (first I'd BUY a NAS 110)

I'd probably commit blaspheme and change darn near everything...

I like your start but with a few changes:
Galvanized Chassis
Disc Brakes added to rear
Repainted Alpine white - done correctly so rivets are not painted
New doors including a new style rear door
Mantec tire carrier
TR beadlocks 17x9.5 3.5" backspacing
Cage painted black
KM2 tires (37x12.5)
Rovertyme 3 in kit with Bilstein shocks
TD5 dash with new AC front and rear
Tuffy box with CB
Exmoor G4 seats
Full rubber interior - genuine
4bt engine (I'd stuff in a 6bt or a duramax if it would fit)
New style locks so the ignition key opens doors
change the front end to a 3 link
Toyota axle conversion
new drive shafts (not sure which ones though)
requisite fender trimming so everything stuffs nicely
ARB lockers front and rear, gearing changed to 4.?? (not sure on that one)
Ashcroft underdrive
SG or similar bumperettes
sliders...
upgrade/new skid plates, ti rods etc. so my underside doesn't go to crap

I'm sure there's a lot more stuff I'm forgetting but the list is obviously long... and expensive...

I've never really understood those that want to keep the NAS 110's 100% original. I saw mine as a block of clay from which to make my dream vehicle.

The rear drum to disc conversion was was the 2nd best mod I've done so far. the 1st without a doubt is the driver side convex mirror conversion.

I'll add to all the lists what I'm about to do when I get home in the spring. I have $700 worth of Second Skin sound and heat barrier products waiting in the garage for me to install. I'm stripping everything in the cab out and doing it right. The wife will ultimately love riding in the 110; it is my mission in life.
