Tomb raider build...

Soooo.... much like a lot of other guys out there I have always had a thing about the Lara croft truck... Well I recently wanted to do an automatic v8 worked/massaged engine conversion so I guess I may turn this into a rhd 110 open top Lara croft tomb raider replica...dammit... Now I have to buy a pipe bender and aluminum welder...naturally I will update as it progresses..

Yeah... That's really neat,,, but double cab 110s are just too much money to go hacking one up to build as a no a/c no roof aluminum dashed toy...but that definitely is a beast...

Shayne, great minds....
We have started a similar project, and just got most of the body off last w/e! Getting frame blasted, and body parts to paint shop.
Let me know if you need some 5000's ;-)

I'm pretty slack at that Josh, sorry.
Truck chassis is to get blasted this week, body panels to paint shop- will get pics as time allows. Then to Brian for cage work...

Thanks, I think ....

No, I didn't use Brian as I needed mine back on time :-0
But the cage is another issue, and Mr Kandefer will be helping there.
