Project Zambesi - Td5 NAS 110

Have been working on this for almost a year.

NAS 110 with Td5 frame and engine.
Most Td5 parts came from low miles wrecked 110 Hi-cap.
Got new TD5 frame because Hi-cap was T-boned.
New bulkhead, new doors, new paint, new seat covers. The list goes on...

Check out the link:

Enjoy,

Ze

love that color. Looks like that NAS was really rusty. Was it from up in the rust belt ?

No. Believe it or not, it was from San Francisco. Was parked outside, close to the ocean, under a tree from new. The bulkhead was shot but everything else was in good shape.

Very nice. What kind of paint are you using to paint the block and diff housings?

This picture explains why my 95 door catches don't hold in the out position - I don't have the the rod!

Suuuuuwwwweeeeet! I remember her too.

I grew up on Lake street, just above the Presidio in San Francisco and remember seeing that old girl around. I've always been a 90 guy but appreciate the bigger brother 110's. I think she was my first exposure to the 110. I'm so glad to see her in the state she's in now! Very good choices on all accounts, paint, power, etc. and meticulous at that. Your garage must be an certified outpost factory! Can't wait to see more!

Nice project. I notice you have a couple pics of my Defender in the gallery. It must have been when Jim Newman had it a couple of months ago. I'd like to see that thing when its finished.

One more thing, who do you use for powdercoating?

Yes. I took those shots because I liked the rear view mirror and the Bazooka subwoofer. Your D90 is the one that had the supercharger removed. Correct?

I use ECP Powder Coating in El Cajon.

So the yellow truck was originally going to be Nick's.

Now it's getting folded into your SF NAS110?

Interesting...

Well it all looks very promising so far.

Updated the site with a few more photos. Stripped the old bulkhead and got the intercooler and radiator on.

It's looking very smart.

'tis a good feeling when you fire the lump up for the first time isn't it? The Td5 sounds good as well, doesn't it?

funnily enough, i recorded my exhaust today to see what the turbo whistle sounds like (i've got a standard non cat downpipe, standard 110 middle silencer, and a straight out stainless V8 sports tail section i used to have on an old 110)

sounds pretty good!

I've got to ask... you fitted a panel in the rear tub to get to the fuel pump... what did you use for the actual removable piece? thats just what i want to do to mine. i suppose any round piece of steel or ali would do, but yours looks like it's got a recess punched in it?

cheers

Jamie
