It has an extractor fan on the back so does pretty good so far. I need to lower the turret seat as it was built for midgets, also need to tighten up steer as a bit to muc play for me but goes straight down e road. Not sure if that's a armored rover thing or just loose.

Frankly I'm in love with it.

Actually took it on a 500 mile road trip this week. On the flat bits I cruise at about 55-65. Slows down to about 40 on steep hills. It droves great. I put new 9x16 power king tires on it and they rode alot nicer then the old bar grips.

Added a replica 1919 to the turret so that does the job. Current projects are adding webasto heater O bought so I don't freeze to death and adding back up and side view cameras.

Wow! How did I miss these pictures? The truck looks killer! I used to have a set of tires just like those on my IIa back in High School I think they were called Grand Prix RVT's. I loved those tires - and that truck.

new problem is trying to find a better alternator as stock one won't keep up with new systems....thus Espar heater went into lockout mode due to low voltage...........on a side now who the fuck puts a lockout mode on a heater? I expected better from the germans.
