Better than 50/50 chance that you complete two projects before I finish one!

Wonderful vehicle,built like a panzer tank and went for ever,fond memories driving one of these in the late 90's,these were a popular government vehicle in their time in my country,used for all manner of uses ,we had an option called the Arcarna body option which was anything from a troop carrier multi seat rear body on a cab on only to a set up to long metal rear wellside.
Very popular in Australia as a people carrier for mining workers in the upper west coast and others area's.
The one I used had a later motor I think 4.1 litre,drunk fuel @ an amazing rate and was a vehicle that you never had control of because it had some sort of early autopilot (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) ,finally died towing a large commercial boat on a even larger trailer in a remote area cost a bunch of $$$ to get it to extracted to the nearest town.
Don't know what happened to it after this (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) .

Similar story here, drove an '80 FJ40 in the early '90s which was an absolute beast. Built 100 times better than a Jeep. Went into, through and out of stuff that would stop other vehicles cold. Had this auxiliary rear seat heater which was AWESOME for the -30 deg F mornings in central and western NY.

I can't think of a single time that it got stuck. @Cupomeat was with me on a maiden voyage through a farmers back field (I think it was Mr. Gregory's) where we fell through a sheet of ice into a muddy bog and just kept going.

So true! @tomeric914 , Besides a bunch of minor issues like Radiator holes, that was a beast I never thought would be stuck...

Great Project Arne! Love the color AND there is something to be said for cars that come all apart with bolts, etc... Looks like fun!

10.5 months into it. I'm calling it essentially complete. Waiting on a last firewall grommet, and a bit of cleaning and touchup. Everything works as it should—lights, brakes, horns, gauges, wipers, all of it.

Going to be out of town for a few days next week, will do some more driving to make sure there are no new surprises, and then lay plans to sell it.
