Bob that is ridiculously awesome. You doing some winter wheeling up there?

Did you repaint it? If I recall, I thought it was like a single-stage flat/rough paint when I saw it last.

No, it's not The Goat. And I think Bob still stayed leafs too...correct? (Goat was an early ECR coiler).

I've been toying with my own title, though it would be "Series IIA TDI". This spring I'll be starting galvy chassis and new tub...sort of kicking around the idea of a Tdi as well to replace the tired 2.25. Though I think (but not sure) that it's quite a bit of work to pull off the change. I'll have to pick Bob's brain before I do anything.

I am hoping we actually have a winter, otherwise I will have to go find some. The paint is as you saw it before. It's a 2 coat PPG . Base with Ceramic, which MB spec. It's pretty bullet proof on the trails.

Yes leaf, the Goat was a coiler.

I can say I am glad I did a power steering conversion as well. I am now toying with a disc brake conversion, not sure it's needed though, once you let off the throttle there is not much of a coast factor

That thing is so cool. In the latest LRO international, some dude called Sir Ranulph Fiennes drove a 110 with tracks on it and the front track rotated and tore out the front wing. Pretty cool. Any more pics?

He's pretty much the last of the true badasses. Or, the real "most interesting man in the world". Nice truck by the way!

So what constitutes it being a TDI; rover or other power plant?

Rover; it's a 200 Tdi. Bob did all of the work, and it's a spectacular install coupled with a galvy frame.

I believe VW has the trademark (or whatever the legal term is) on TDI in america, but TDI means turbo direct injection, so TDI really doesnt even mean its diesel, just means its turbocharged and direct injection, which until recently was only commonly found on diesels.
