I wouldn't worry about rolling over offroad. You have to get your wheels over 3 feet high up a Nieman Marcus wall before risking a rollover.

Charles,

As usual , thank you for sharing the valuable personal experience of yours.

BTW, I though the Galleria in Tysons Corner only allowed you to go to 1 feet as you almost had a panic attack attemping the 1.5 feet

Practice man, practice. Go to Tysons II - less security guards and jersey walls to get you started up the wall.

Nooooo, Gustavo!...I'd say ditch the cage too and keep it old school. If you really have to "modernize" it, I'd say at most a front hoop and the rest should be an internal cage a la Camel Trophy. I say keep the cages for the NAS trucks...also show off that white roof and don't cover it up with a cage!

The black paint and white roof look great, btw! My vote is for beluga wheels though. Anyway, nice work! I'm sure it will look great when you're done.

+1 for the cage and black wheels. I think the black lines on the white roof will look awesome.

Gustavo already owns the cage. I have had do go back to square 1 three times trying to get it over from the Uk reasonably from a cost standpoint, otherwise it would likely already be going on the truck

Goose, it's looking great. I would do black wheels and keep the cage. I am already wishing I kept my black rims.

My sliders are Mantec and I bent up the nerf bars myself by the way.

Jonathan,

Thanks. It had the black wheels ( powder coated black ) and I like the look of the Chawton wheels matching the roof.

BTW, paint the wheels ( professionally done with several coats of paint and several of clear ) probably 500.00 and matching Frank.

After is done, and the cage on , I might do the wheels Beluga, but I think it looks RARE *LMAO*, seriously looks different

the 45 inches of snow in the past week has impacted the restoration. I special ordered some parts from RN that showed as NLA with my UK sources (door strikers) for second row doors with roll up windows and lift up handles-only used in 84-85. I haven't had mail delivered in a week. Not sure how backed up UPS is.

45" ? the rear deck is buried.
Everytime I go down the driveway I feel like I am on a Luge ( barely clear the sides of the D3 )

Doug, BTW I forwarded you an email from Tony UK
