I purchased the 94 D90 cage from a member.

More photos as it is today. Im making new floor and seat box pieces. They will be powder coated white. Man, my photos are blurry. Ill take better shots tomorrow.

Disco seats need to be installed. They were just sitting on the box during the transport.

I assume you will have an A cage to attach to the back. Are you using a gutter kit? Badger making the top?

Yes I do. I have a complete 94 NAS ST cage freshly powder coated.

Badger top with gutter kit?

I have never seen such a professional powder coater. The ones I've used have been a joke.

I've always liked the 110 STs with the full doors - no extra storage needed like when you have the 1/2 doors with the door tops off. Plus if it starts raining you're already covered - not to mention they tend to seal better.

Keep up the good work! What engine is under the hood?

Tell me about it - I still can't believe you were trying to charge a premium for the POS PC you had done on the bike rack mount.

Barry, not sure about the soft top. I have a good used best top that Im thinking of "extending" to fit a 4 door. Not sure it will work so Ill have to research it a bit more.

Actually the mount came out well. I had it done with my cage, tire carrier, etc. Of course I had the place redo everything as it wasn't to my standards the first time around.

Still I want to find place like that. Most of the places I have gone look like back alley abortion clinics.

Joshua, That is a great looking 110 soft top, I know it now has a new gavy frame and is painted black.


The engine is a Toyota 3B Turbo Diesel from a 1985 Land Cruiser.

Still waiting for this kit to come out. Yours will probably get done before they release it.
