No, I had it done at Ships Mechanical in Portland. Also upgraded the 3.5 Twin carb V8 to a 3.9 Efi one. The transmission is actually from a Dicovery 1. The console is an Ashcroft. My rig looked a lot like yours when I bought it!

Really nice! I love the door cards! Never seen that style before for the roll ups, or a round clock! But very cool, and I don't just mean the A/C (of which I'm very jealous of!) Great job!

Thanks guys!

Lots more planned- new seats & carpet, new hood & doors (not sure whether to go fiberglass or all aluminium), new chassis & bulkhead, and a lower ratio transfer case.

Cheers,

Paul.
