Hard for me to say. If you are seriously interested we could talk. PM me. If I don't do anything other than install the parts I have coming it would probably be in the range I mentioned before. The cost of the past brings it up some.

well, looks like I was victim to a scam on this page parting out another 95. those parts were going to be used to rebuild this truck and start the restoration. Given that has fallen through I will likely just sell it. If interested please PM me.

Not sure what you are referring to about selling here (the truck or parting it out) but if there is a 95' Classic binnacle gauge surround that is not cracked or broken then I'll take it. As well as the front driver seat ECU.

The canadian guy? It does take longer to get parts from the North....

How much are you out?
I was recently scammed for a RRC console on another board...$140+

I did receive the first box of items but I am still waiting on several others. I am really struggling with the restoration question. I want to fix it up and drive it for a couple years but do wonder if I am spending too much in the process. here are a couple pictures of it from this weekend after I washed it.

This second one was a donor truck to keep another 87, and two other 88s on the road.

Try not to part it.

I will not part it, that is for sure. I will give it away first. White was always one of my favorite colors in these trucks. My thinking is I will put 6-8K into it and drive it for a couple years as my daily driver and then decide what to do again, or sell it to someone who wants a decent truck to restore.

Please consider me first in line to buy it. How is it in the rust department?

Nice collection!. talk to me about those black TWR wheels. I am hoping to get the the TWRs I paid for from OntarioRover to put on my 110 but have no idea if they will ever show up. yours may work well with my epsom green 110.

See having two trucks the same color is hard to come by especially on Epsom green. In would not separate the two. They are long lost brothers.

The wheels aren't black they were plasti-dipped. I started to remove the plast-dip and they look great. Some minor scuffs.

It looks in great condition. Other than the rust repairs, what all does it really need? Is the HG blown and are you dumping oil? How's the interior?

The first thing I would do is take care of the rust. The longer you wait the more expensive the fix. Then treated it with waxoil or similar to prevent (slow) future problems. You can address other issues as they come or as time / money allow.

I have a number of customer's with County's and Classics, long and short, that are absolutely smitten with their cars. Sympathetic renovations are the most common event here.
I have a rust free 215k mile 92 that I will likely never get rid of, as well as a S3 and a LR3. New, old, and a back-up! (Unfortunately, all 3 are down right now......)
