I just subscribed to this list and I guess courtesy asks for an introduction.
Frederik is the name. I am from Belgium and just recently (2 months
now) bought myself a LandCruiser HZJ75. The TLC was bought to do a
big(?) overland trip next year. We, my girlfriend and I, plan to go
overland across the black continent all the way down to cape town. And
if we have time/money left ship the TLC to Japan and drive back home
via Russia/Mongolia/Stans.
The TLC did service in a Dutch company for the last 12years and
already covered 280.000km before we bought it. Still in pretty good
condition I reckon. It is still very nude (everything standard) and
will need some preperation for the big trip. I already purchased/built
a dual-battery system and a fridge but the list of mod's still to do
is quite big: Fit a snorkel, mount a decent bullbar(already destroyed
this one in the field), maybe fit a winch, fit a roofrack, put a
rooftop tent on top, build a shelving system/kitchen/living room in
the back, upgrade the suspension (if money permits as it should not be
necessary) etc, etc...Therefore I might need some, technical, advice
from you cruiserheads from time to time :)
That's about it :)
