Got the 110 rolled back in to the garage and painted the engine compartment. Re landed grounds, extended/repaired vents, and got it all ready to drop the motor in. It really amazing how much crap was packed in to all the "nooks and crannies" on the underside. The front skid plate is on and just finishing up some "details" today. Will get some pics later this am.....

My Badger Strapless Bikini Top arrived finally, Looks nice.
Now just waiting on the 90 to come back from the top end rebuild i am having done (I had a noisy lifter so decided it was time since it is my daily driver normally).

Additionally i am doing a full TerraFirma prosport suspension setup at the same time.

Fitted a center seat to the 110. Good for a small person only.

The "new" motor is in and the wires all run. Just need to finish the plumbing (diesel and water), bleed it out and start it up.
The last pic is what I started with.

Spent the hottest day of the year so far installing an electric radiator fan.
I'm ready for fall to arrive here in Arizona

All in and buttoned up. Took a drive around the block such as it is. I might not put the floors back in. One hell of a "draft".
Got her good and warm....sat on a level, dry pavement and dared her to leak. Left her sitting there idling for about half hour. No leaks....running just fine...as fine as 67 angry hamsters can run.
Now to start attaching the cart load of extra stuff.

The text you sent me said purring like a kitten. Now they are angry gerbils ?
Congratulations on a big job well done.

Changed the transmission fluid and took out the old viscous fan unit while waiting for the new one to arrive...and then read about the electric fan option...

Once you go electric you never go back.

Put a new cat back exhaust, a Borla. Not particularly a challenging job, sounds different, can't notice any difference in performance. So I also cleaned up the throttle body a bit. Later, driving to the Post Office, just as I pull into the lot, it dies, roll into a spot. Check all my connections I undid during the clean up, but still no restart. Monkey about with it for 15 minutes, just about to call AAA when I notice I can't hear the fuel pump kick in. I check the fuse and wiggle stuff, still no joy. Then I remember the impact switch! Couldn't remember if it is resettable or not, but I push in on the top, it clicks! All back to normal. I guess when I had the MAF out I must have bumped it and it finally went over center after a mile or two. These trucks just need to f@#k with you a bit every now and then.

Replaced my "custom" tailgate with a bright shinny new one from Rocky Mountain. The paint job is a camo Krylon rattle can. Pretty close to NATO Olive Drab...at least for now.

Yes. It was like Christsmas when I got home from NH last weekend. Will serve as an aux Fridge for the camper. I may even have time for a few alar events this year too. Will definitely come in handy then.
