1994 RRC LWB Daily Driver

Bought in Texas off Craigslist. Delivered to DC area by List member Ron Dade (Thanks!)
Has LT230 conversion, otherwise stock.

These pics are the ones the PO sent before I finished the deal. Upon arrival it turns out to be just as rust free as advertised. Only rust is under the front footwell carpet pad as you would expect. It is only on the surface tho.
The PO pretty much butchered the center console and dash so that all gets replaced. Leather is fair as are the carpets. Nothing that Leathertique and a powerwash can't fix. Wood bad, getting replacement. Headliner is a fail. Have fobs but the central locking/alarm is a no go via fob. Keys work tho. Interior lamps don't come on when you unlock or open the door. Usual fails; seat switches, mirror switch, seat heaters. AC and heat OK. Binnacle mostly working, speedo drive unhooked.
Rock chip in windshield.
Not a bad truck for $1500 plus the cost to ship.

Contacted George at Leathertique. He's also a LRO (P38, 2 Discos). I'm getting the #3 kit that will do all the seats, plus enough dye to redo the door cards.

Thanks for that...I just ordered the Rejuvinator OIl and Prestine Clean, I want to condition the seats in mine before I install the covers I bought from Brooks.

I'm gonna let Lav's kid burn it at next year's Conclave. It is absolutely useless. Well, not unless you want to go to the trouble of gluing all new veneer on, or shooting it with Rhino Liner.

Spent the afternoon at Rob Bass' shop. Got enough parts to rebuild the dash and console. Found good second row door pockets. We got rid of the cow catcher and replaced the bonnet release cable. Also found source of the steering leak. Steering box shaft bearings likely no good cz on full lock left the shaft opens up a 1 mm gap in the seal and the fluid pours out.
Need to swap out the seat ECU with the black truck.
So I still need a good tan color parcel tray, tan door pull pockets (2) and a tan owners manual pocket.

Repairs to lower dash and center console.
Switch panels are welded on but when welds fail I drilled and tapped holes for 4-40 screws. The posts are hollow so you can feel when drill bottoms out. I'll set the screws with thread lock.

Screwing from behind was a fail. I broke the extremely fragile plastic studs. Wound up using model airplane cement to glue the switch panels in place. Meh, it works.
On to the center console. Jeez with 4 to work with you'd think I could put one good one together. Gluing cracks back together. Trying to come up with a permanent way to repair the delicate cross bar at the top...

Not completely rust free. Found a few quarter size imperfections. Tool roll has never seen daylight apparently.
Usual trouble areas are good

Did you figure out the issue with the speedo? I'd assumed the guy either failed to hook it up during the T-case change or he broke it. Will correction of this issue also fix the inop cruise control? When I'd punch the master cruise switch, it would light, but not stay on. Would have been SO handy on trip from TX to DC! Garmin speedo was a trip!

As for the rust under the carpet on passenger side, sounds like the old condensate drain issue.

Powerwashed carpets and pads. Vacuumed out the truck. Worked on center console some more. Glued reenforcement on upper cross bar. Got all the cracks repaired. Onnly thing left is to reattach the vinyl that has lifted here and there.

Speedo lower cable/sender were siting in the back of the truck. Bought new lower cable from RN. Have not installed it yet. I would venture to guess that with the speedo restored, and all new vacuum hose run, it will cruise control.

Rust I will just spot treat and eventually Waxoyl the rear crossmember.

Bill, that's about as close to a rust free cargo floor as you'll see(unless you peek under my Hunter's carpet)
Nice score.

Yup it's all just light surface rust where the paint is scuffed. Should be no issue to remedy.

Amazing re: speedo! PO simply threw in the towel, Bill. Have you attempted to put 12V to the OEM stereo head unit that was also in the box in the back, yet? Probably nothing wrong with it. Security code would be easily obtainable. Yep... all that vacuum line was toast. I didn't even want to handle it much as I was afraid it would crumble.
