Oh yeah, it's CAREY...
I suppose I should've worded it differently as well. I don't walk around with a vomit bag all day , it's just a "different' color,...who is anyone to judge what someone else deems appealing. I'm sure it will turn out well. I would've tried talking them into metallic orange metal flake personally!

Orange with a metallic gold flake on top. My Sycip Diesel Single Speed came that way. Awesome paint.

Sycip Bros repainted one of my Swiss Crosses - so sweet.

I think Vesuvius Orange would look sweet. Of course Tangiers would also be great.

Celeste is similar to the pastel green. Another tasty classic color.

Are you painting the cappings, or galvanising them? It also looks like you are retaining the euro rear light layout.
Galvanized cappings
1997 NAS tail lamps

The body tubs sides we use have the hole as they are from a Euro 110 (NAS tub sides have cage holes and are NLA), but those holes get covered up with the NAS side trims.

color

mike, that's good come back color. i like it. i bought a rangie from the local toyota store and they offer that color in the fj's.

how much do these cost anyway? with a supplied donor. auto, 4.6 conversion, a/c, jump seats, alloys, removeable hardtop and soft top. have you done a hardtop/soft top coversion?? seems like the cage would all have to be shrunk down, as well as some modifications to the hardtop. just curious.

looking good.

The rims are 130 rims (same as NAS 110) ANR1534PM

Top color is going to be Black. I was thinking tan, but customer choice in Black. There is a lot of Black on the truck so it will look good.

I wanted to do SIII style headlight trims as well for the old school look, but the fabrication time to fill the extra holes in the front fenders correctly was going to end up not being worth the slight change in look for the customer.

The truck is nearly done and undergoing road tests now. Its headed to Badger for the top in a week or so, then off to the customer. I'll get some final shots of it posted soon.

The next one is Arles Blue (looking forward to seeing that one), then 2 more White ones.

Flares are a must. The tires stick out about 2" past the body, so we have to install them. Defender wheel openings without flares would look a bit goofy without flares with that small of a tire IMO.

I agree 100%, and I challenge anyone who disagrees with me to personal combat.

LR part of choice. No driveline parts, and you must be able to manually wield it - i.e. no chassis or bulheads. I choose the front radius arm. -5 to initiative but +5 to damage.

Mmh. Unless you are a pretty big guy, wielding a front radius arm would be slow and tiring. I could dance around you for a while and then once you tire, use my rear trailing arm to inflict massive blunt force trauma.

But I'm on your side on this, so I'll watch your back while you rest.

LOL,

Gotta agree with Charles- the rear trailing arm would be my weapon of choice once I had exhausted my cache of alloy lug nut projectiles and let you in close enough for hand to hand.

A drag link with the tie rod end still in it would make a nice hit and puncture wound device...

Sadly I have given this more thought. Are we to consider the time to remove said weapon from our vehicles before we can use it. That would radically change my choice - I think I'd just pull the hood prop and start wailing at you while you wrench. How about using third party accessories like hi-lift handles and bars? When's the fight?

Sorry to perpetuate the hijack Mike.
