I'd recommend that you switch to Sushi rather then a can-o-worms

Today we started with this:



Cleaned:



Started cutting and this is what remains: (only engine control, warning lights and meters)



Leftovers....



New wiring is already in the car.
Engine starts and runs smooth. All warning lights and meters work...
Next is final routing and taping of the wiring.
I also have to make a second wiring for the lights and some 'offroad' equipment...

Dash is getting there. Most of the wiring is inside. Nothing connected yet.

Thanks, but as you can see, the wiring is still a big mess....
Still need to figure out the wiper and ventilation connections. After that i can clean all up and make a nice wiring loom.
Dashplates are 100% finished.

Hello Peter
Great work you have done,only just seen your thread just now,fantastic for a first or any build for that matter!! i'm also a big Patrol axle fan but a word of warning,both of your axles are a little on the weak side so be gentle,and travel with spare parts!!!what way are you dealing with your left side front prop?and slip yoke?do you still have rubber body mounts with your cage running from chassis to body?(sorry if i've missed it somewhere)pity you dont have much options for offroad in Belgium,were spoilt in Ireland!!!

I know. When we started this project, we planned on running the stock 1.3 engine, so this axles would do fine. Later we came upon this engine and the whole project changed from a weekend toy to a race 4x4...

Front axle will be cut to pieces and put back together the other way round...

Rubber body mounts are to be removed. Tube rocksliders will be attached to the chassis, but first i want to build the exhaust for clearing issues.

If they made those in 38" I would seriously look at running them!
