Topless 110 Rebuild

Seen this truck change hands several times. Its now at my place for a frame swap, RHD -> LHD conversion, Auto Install, Paint and creature comfort updates. Truck is being built on a budget while considering the best bang for the buck.

Here are the initial tear down images. Truck overall is in good shape for the age but due to some old frame repairs and rust the owner has decided to swap out the questionable frame for a new galvanized Marsland Chassis.

Looks like I dropped my camera one to many times. Sorry about the image quality.

Strong runner. Fires right up at every key stroke (then overheats). Will correct that later but I was shocked how well it is coming apart so far.

She (not sure of her name yet) will receive all that is needed to give a new lease on life.

Likely gonna need new doors and some other bits but otherwise the body is all there.

Hey guys! Yep, that beast is mine...no name yet, but I think I'm gonna save that for the finale. Stephen, thanks for setting this thread up about the build. I've talked to alot of people about this soon-to-be badass rover. Right now, I'm posting to yall from Kuwait enroute to Baghdad.--was home on R&R for 2 weeks after being in Iraq for 8 months--and now I'm heading back. It works out perfectly how Stephen's shop is about an hour from my parents' house. Visiting the shop and hangin out with Stephen for a bit was awesome. And let me tell you guys, Stephen's setup is flatout great. If you ever get the chance to see his shop, check it out for sure. Like I said, definitely lookin forward to seein the outcome, and it's great to check up on the progress in my down time out here. Hey Jim, how did your shipping of the 90 go for ya out to CO? And Stephen, with that huge drop-off of parts and whatnot, I think I left a box with part of my helicopter helmet in it. It's really no big deal, and I can get a replacement part over here no problem. Lemme know if it turns up, and keep up the great work. Cheers!

-Ryan

Oh, and Mike, those running boards I bought from ya a couple months back are goin on there as well. Can't wait for this thing to come together.

Hey Ryan, did you get a chance to install those 5-bar wing tops while you were home or are they going on the 110?

And the strip down continues

Ryan

I have to bill you for 20 cut off discs. (just kidding of course). Overall most parts have come off like she has been built sometime in the last 20 years.

The rear floor was the worse part. Every damn bolt was a rusted bit of crap. Here is last nights work.

Stephen,

Are you sticking with the LT95 or upgrading to an LT77s or 380 and 230 combo ?
