Ok, so I have been collecting parts for the last six months. Including doors, fenders, grill assembly, nas frame, nas tub, and everything for a LHD conversion. Before I get castrated I am converting so I call sell easier and for more money in end! There are way to many cool RHD just sitting around not selling that I would love to own, oh and my much better half said it is the only way I could keep it! I have no argument that has a chance against a 120lb 15 week preggers wife! I justify it by thinking that it will make it easier to sell.
To-do
97 NAS frame swap, convert engine mounts and add side gas tank. Gonna run duel tanks with a 200 tdi.

Have it sand blasted and powder coated, along with all Safari Gard stage three suspension.

Swapping 97 NAS tub, body parts and bulkhead are all going to be disassembled and painted willow green.

That's a good start along with the LHD conversion. Over the past six months I have made my own front bumper, rear cross member, rear quarter guards and rear tire carrier. My rear ROW tub along with old frame will be converted to a trail rig trailer. Here are a some pic of the last ten hours of break down! Let the fun begin!!! The last pic is just inspiration.

Looks like fun! I did basically the same thing to my 110, but 6 months ended up being almost two years! Looks like your off to a quick start tho.
