Thanks Amity. I hope to see yours as well. I will try to make the meet up. The truck is not done yet. The top is not finish and I didn't get my seats back yet. You'll see it soon.

I just have to put on the license plate LED lights, snorkel, side flashers, and bolt down the seats.

If I'm not mistaken, I think Trever at RovahFarm got them for me. I think it's a Terifirma. I really have to check to be 100% sure. I've brought so many new items I lost track what I got and from whom.

It's spelled "bonatti grey" on my lr3. I don't think they would have 'mericanized a sticker in such an obscure location.

Well, part of my rebuild consist of upgrading my motor. I've purchased a 200tdi from a good board member and another member from Ohio helped me with the shipping. These are the photos of the motor.

Well guys, I've decided not to change the timing belt on this truck. If the engine is not running bad, why change it? My fear is that if I was to change it, I would start having problems. So I am only changing the clutch. Also I am setting up a (big) Garrett turbo intercooler and an electric fan. My biggest problem is to get my lazy uncle to actually do the work. Sometimes it better not letting family work on your truck. Lower rate has it's price.

Because it is a contact motor and you don't know when the belt was last serviced. Cheap insurance against the cost of a replacement motor/head if the belt is about done...

Plus, it is an easy job and if you are paying attention you won't have any problems.

X1000 it's a pretty quick job with the motor out. Having blown timing belts on engines in the past you realize that it can cost you almost half the price of that engine setup to repair...

I change my timing belts at least 20K before their service date; my last blown timing belt (it was an audi) cost me nearly $3000 in valves and repairs. Suddenly the $800 belt change sounded like a bargain

Having the belt in your possession wont help the fact that you still need to get the lads at the shop to actually install it.

Definitely need to get it swapped, but plan to add 3-5 weeks to the completion date based on how long it has been taking so far. At this point, they must be Olympic power lifters from pushing that thing in and out every day.

Thanks Kraig. These bloody guys are extremely lazy. I was hoping that I'll have the truck by next winter. I think that if they remove a bolt a day they could have replaced 5 engines already.

Well gentlemen, here's the update on my truck. There's no update. My truck has been sitting in my uncles shop for 6 months without any logical examination as to what's taking so long. I've spent over $7000 in bodywork and now I have dings and dents.

So far we've manage to get a Discovery 200tdi engine; changed the timing belt; change the clutch; purchased the following:
Garrett intercooler
Water pump
Starter
Electric fan
Water sencer
Heater blower
