1985 Defender 110
Who's painting your rig? Do they have it for a long time?
Thanks! You saw it at the very beginning of it all. I have a ministry of defender dash waiting to go in it. I’ll let everyone know how that goes. If it’s a fail, I’ll put a true puma dash in it, if I can source one. Those things are like trying to find the lindberg baby.Truck is looking amazing!
Hey V. Thanks so much for your commitment to document the process! I'm making my way through the Chevy conversion threads on this forum and am amazed at the generosity of it's members in how much knowledge, experience & creative problem solving is offered.@Naplm00
That's why I changed the title of this thread to, "LS3 Conversion, I'm learning a lot"!!! Thanks for letting me know. I'm not a huge fan of looking stupid on this thread, but every time I post, I learn so much from all of you. I'm compiling the whole rebuild into a book because this has been such a crazy fun learning experience. I want to have it really well documented so I can remember each awesome step.
Yes, the members on this forum gave me the courage to attempt the restoration (restomod?) in the first place. They are helpful for parts, advice, and support.Hey V.

Is the book you speak of available?
I'm gearing up for a 1987 90 Hardtop Gen V conversion - have been for about 10 months. Reading about journeys like yours is pulling me further away from sending the truck off to an out of state shop, and instead, have the conversion and re-skin done in phases with locals who will make space for my learning/involvement.
