6 colors are becoming one color. There may be a light at the end of the tunnel after all.

Isn't it a problem in the US when a chassis number isn't stamped by the factory? Here in Holland it isn't allowed to stamp one your self. Without the Leyland logo's before and after the number one can see instantly the number is not original.

And there is one digit missing in the VIN, it should be 17 digits and this one is 16? The 7 or 8 is missing wich states if it is RHD or LHD..

In the US the chassis is not required to be stamped. The VIN plate is the critical verification point - even more so on import than once in country.

Great job! Having painted my truck myself, I can totally appreciate the hard work it takes to properly take everything apart to paint every part. It will look very nice, nothing worse than painted-over nuts/bolts/trim.

Couldn't agree more. Slow going to pull apart every little bit, but knowing that it is done correctly and will last another 25years is encouraging. Hoping to finally start putting body parts onto the frame in a week or so.

I was wondering how many Arles 110's are running around the states. It's a color I've always liked for a variety of reasons, but seldom see it on a 110.

Yeah, he does. I saw him pulling his boat out of the water for the season with it last Summer.

Made a little progress over the holidays

Coming together a little bit. New suspension, new fuel lines, new brake lines, painted parts being reassembled, and lots done in not too much time...

Thanks, coming along nicely. Hope to have the rest of the controls and wiring in by the end of the weekend... At least it's starting to look like a truck again.

Working on my Popeye forearms...

OE lines replaced with braided SS already. Easy to just lift the front of the chassis without bodywork to release the springs.

Didn't do too bad this weekend getting a little shop time in.

Truck is not necessarily staying up here...

I've been running the 130 with the stock heater box without issues so I'm not certain it's really needed. Wouldn't mind heated mirrors though and they fog up every time I head up into the mountains.

Was planning on operating on the RHD wiper setup, trimming and converting to LHD for the next build.
