Did you linex the frame?
Was each individual piece line x'd? Then put back together?
Looks like all nuts and bolts were linex'd too, individually?

No the frame was not linex'ed.

Was each individual piece line x'd? Then put back together?


Yes, all doors, floorpans, transmission tunnel, seatbase lids were linex'ed seperately, all new nuts and bolts installed, all hardware CAD plated.

Looks like all nuts and bolts were linex'd too, individually?


Only the doorbolts were put in to keep the thread clean, we through away the coated bolts and replace everything for new CAD plates ones.

My best regards,Michael

The Line-X logo? lol

Is this what the market wants?

.

So it seems, the other Line-X truck which I shipped sold within 3 days. With this stuff, you either love or or you hate it. Doing 2 more , one in grey and one in tan.


Besides these Line-X trucks I have 3 more 5 door LHD 110's, 2 3 door LHD 110's and 3 LHD 90's in normal high gloss paint.

I like it and think the line-x looks great! I like permanent solutions. Looks even better with all the trimmings (bumper, grills, steps, etc.)! Very choice! I'm curious about the doors? Is it just the angle and lighting that makes them look a bit different in sheen or color? I just didn't see any mention of it and I know that anything you do is excellent and entirely intentional. Just curious.

Thanks for all the remarks, pos. and neg. We will be building several other 90 and 110's in high gloss paint but this is cool stuff too.

Doors seem out of color in the first pics set, probably the angle in which pics were taken. Truck is almost done now, see pics below, will upload more pic later.

Add a new winch bumper, new sidesteps and line X headlight grill.

The Tdci FF jumpseat are a very nice addition, we also installed the shoulder belt anchorage point so they are also fully functional , great for taking the kids on a outing,

That exactly how I want my seatbox to come out! Looks perfect with the plated fasteners. And those lock n folds in the back look just right as well.

Too bad someone didn't make a flat fender flare option like the Jeep ones I've seen. It would be a really nice option for a low slung rig with bigger tires like this.

My personal favorite, although they are all exceptional, has been the limestone 110.
