Looking good. Does it have a custom dash?

It will. That's a cardboard mock-up in the picture. I'm toying with different ideas

Why the custom dash? Why not just go td5?

How much is a td5 dash? I assumed they'd be to pricey.

Yeah they would but I think after the work you did it would be worth it. Even using an original one like what came in the truck would be nice

Wow. That's awful. I was gonna just do a flat panel out of stainless or aluminium instead of the dash tray.

Sam's 110 resurrection

I finished making my rock sliders out of 1x3 square steel tube. I had to taper the ends of course. In an earlier post I showed how I remade the rocker panel out of 3/16 steel and left the outside leg long and put several holes in it for attaching the sliders from the back side with bolts. I tapped holes in the back of the slider. I also put a tab in the front which attaches through same bolt that holds the bulkhead to the frame. The back has L brackets that attaches to the rear frame outriggers. It's all pretty solid and as integrated as it gets IMHO.
I also had the crummy plastic coating blasted of the front brush bar. You know, the original coating that traps rust underneath. I then primed it with an epoxy primer, then two coats of black single stage automotive paint on it and the slider/rocker panel pieces.
Also finally put the boost wheels on. Just makes it in the garage. In fact the three supports on top of the roof slightly rub the rubber flap on the garage door molding at the top when it passes under. Talk about just fitting in.

I say spring for the Td5 dash or at least a year specific dash. After all that work it will look so much better.

I'm starting to think that may just be easier. You're slowly convincing me.

While we are at it. Ditch the brush guard. Your truck looks better without it. Plus if you ever hit something it is just going to bend into the nice paint.

Sam's 110 resurrection

I got the brand new rear door on. Just used sheet metal for an inside panel. Don't ask why the tire cover says "Santa Fe, New Mexico". It was free and it fits! Beggars can't be choosers. Ordered all new door seals from Safari HP. Should be here in a few weeks. Also gonna get a TD5 upper dash section from him too ($169). Think I can blend it with the existing and have a pretty cool look. Will take a little customizing. Can't afford the $1800 for the whole set up. That's a little too pricey IMHO

I got my new wing top protectors installed. I also reinstalled the sliding rear windows. I had to take them apart, clean, repaint, then reassemble. I put new felt in the sliding part too. Feels nice and tight but still allows the windows to slide open. Shouldn't have any window rattle. Now starts the wiring/ dashboard portion of the project. Oh boy.

Great Craftmanship

I was hoping to look for a TDI engine implant but I discovered all the areas that I had been addressing. Well Done. The sill's I have to rebuild and attach them as well. Do you happen to remeber the dimensions for this?

Wow! You are doing an amazing job on the build. I assume you're not married, or you have the coolest wife on the planet to let you work on that thing as much as you must be.

Funny you should mention that. I am married and I thank her on a regular basis for letting me have this kind of project. She's a wonderful woman. I think she see's how much enjoyment and satisfaction I get out of doing this so she lets me. I fully realize that none of it would be possible if she wasn't so cool about it.
