Thanks. A friend of mine and myself are doing all the work. He knows a lot about these trucks and I'll be learning and helping along the way. This is my second 110. I sold #29 almost a year ago and thought I'd never by a 110 gain, but he adction came back.
Plans for #27 are Td5 frame, engine and full restoration. I'll post a link soon of a website where you guys can see the progress. Right now the axels are being rebuilt.

I got real lucky as both of mine have no rust or rot to speak of(except for a small bit of bleeding at some of the hinges) but both very free of most 110 imperfections. My issue now is one always sits and never gets driven because we always take the auto when we go out. I think I might sell the manual and just keep the auto because it seems like such a waste to just have one sitting all the time. I might throw it on ebay.
surf110 how was the mechanical on #27 and the doors? It sounded like a great deal for the price but we all know how parts can add up as we go.
Mechanically is in decent shape. I might need new doors. The bulkhead is toast.
I'll end with a complete V8 3.9 rolling chassis that I haven't decided what to do. Might build a 110 Hi-cap with parts left over from the wrecked 2000 TD5 110 Hi-cap I'm using as a donor vehicle.
