Other than the 110 (Yes the one on the "how much is too much thread") and the '56 speedster - which took way less time than the 110. I have two remaining lines on the bucket list:

a 1973 Carrera RS

a Dino Ferrari - but for this reason:
http://dinoferraripr​oject.com

I work in muscular dystrophy in my day job, and stuff like this that helps kids is just incredible to me.

Oilworker (knowen inside the other forum) is still running this Tibus system.
It's pretty much calm about the Oilworkerthread, isn't it?

Ratio of this system is nearly 1:1. This doesn't help to reduse the torque inside the axle diffs.

But redusing the first question to the bottom line:

I would like to get my rig ready for a trip round about the world.

That's it in a nutshell.

That's Taliban talk right there! There's more Rovers that do it than Toyotas. Statistical fact. I'm with Arlo.

I prefer to keep things factory correct. Usually if I modify something I use another existing factory configuration or an evolution of that. I try to keep any aftermarket modifications very tasteful. Sometimes restoring something to exactly the way it was originally just isn't realistic because quite often the old parts are no longer available or there is a new version that is superior. I think you should always use an improved version of a part of it is available. Let's take my truck as an example. Although the end product won't be an original NAS Defender, it is on an alternate timeline. The Defender 2.8i prototypes were NAS Defenders. For whatever reasons BMW/Land Rover's plan to sell the trucks with BMW engines in North America was cancelled, but that doesn't mean I can't pick up where they left off. My truck will be very close to what would have been a NAS Defender in 2001 if BMW/Land Rover's plan succeeded. It is some old BMW guy's dream realized. So that's one example of a possible route.

That's a sexy bitch right there! I'm surprised however that there is no mention of the year and engine type, or any pics of the frame, bulkhead or engine bay. Those are gotta-haves these days for any buyer.
