Great job Peter! I love all the details you put into the hood. Also like how the cage & fender bars tie into the cowl. What is the wheeling like in Belgium?

Wheeling in Belgium is very poor.........
Only standard vehicles are allowed in traffic. Even a bigger tyre is illegal...
We can only wheel in offroadparks which are only 3 left in Belgium and they are not very big....
We always go to France or Germany. Their offroadparks are bigger and more of a challenge. In Belgium is the surface flat.

The purpose of my build is to compete in offroad races/trophy's in Romania and Croatia.
Over there is free offroading still allowed and the nature is magnificent.
Look on Youtube for : TAT Transylvania adventure trophy , Croatia trophy , Istra challenge.....
The only downside is the distance. I'll have to travel 1800 KMs with a trailer....

What kind of tube or hose should i use to connect the radiator in the back?
Steel tubing rusts inside and rust kills the water pump.
Diameter should be between 30 and 35 mm. (1" 1/4?)

Any suggestions?

Steel tube won't rust if you use the appropriate coolant with a de-gas bottle. My 2.0L Pinto engines look like
new cast iron on the inside... 50/50 mix, de-gas bottle, no air in the system...

I'm going to use galvanized steel tube and, as SteveL wrote, appropriate coolant.

Tubing connected to the engine,

Fuel tank finally gets it's place. It will be covered for security. Donor was a Mitsubishi pick-up truck. It holds 90 Liters.



Rear mudflaps done. Just have to make holes for the airshocks.









Front mudflaps cut, but not installed yet.

Original roll bar cut to pieces and transformed into something useful.











Only tacked in to place. The real welding will be done by a specialist...

Your truck is looking fine! In my race series having a fluid line inside the cab is a major no-no. Have you checked with your sanctions rules?
Good job so far,

Richard

Fuel tank casing reviewed. Wooden panels replaced by metal and filler hose rerouted.
Fuel lines, fuel filter and filler hose will be covered with sheetmetal.



Front mudflaps finished.



Thermostat and radiator are approx the same height.
