It all started so innocently with a nice little blue SWB

It got a good clean and polish and then a lift kit and a snorkel

Next one of those windy drum things on the front for rescuing other vehicles

Then I did some modifications to the body work

A top of the range roof rack is essential - so I went with this beauty

I sorted the suspension out to give it some more 'boing'

Some body armour

Well you gotta have some lights, eh?

Somewhere to put your s***

Some more toys for blowing up your air-bed. Difficult if smokin' a fag.

SIPS (tree bars to you and me)
IMGP3825.jpg


More batteries mean more readouts!

Custom bumpers and a rear receiver

Nice noisy exhaust

Front locking diff thrown in

And a partridge in a pear tree. Don't forget the stickers - they're holding it all together. Relax, we're almost half way through...........

Thanks fellas. I have to say that it's running sweet at the moment. Rotated the tyres this week and there was a little wobble in one of them which has gone. Just about finished all of the work - still got to look at this roll cage that I have on stand by. But just wish that I could beat out the wing damage and get the sidelight to fit properly. Not bothered about the rear quarter damage. But the light looks poor. It has been a lot of work. There were bits of course that I didn't post - it was getting long enough. Good as it is, I still want an 80. One day I am sure to make an announcement. Shortly before carrying my b***s around in a bag for the rest of my life.
Oh blimey, she must have heard me - everybody HIDE :o

Best looking - and I'm sure performing (not seen it in action for myself -yet) 90 I've ever seen. You must be proud mate, I certainly would be if it was mine :mrgreen:

Definately - "Built not bought"

Juan. Sorry about the pictures. They all got deleted some while ago by accident. I don't own the car any more, it's Tony P's. But I shall see if I can get some of the old pics back up just for you. I can send you a guide on the body lift, no problem. I am sure he won't mind be filling in some of the Techno Detail

The tyres are 265 x 75 x 16 BF Goodrich Mud Terrains. Suspension is Old Man Emu 40mm, rear coil spacers from Rock Crawler http://www.4wd1.com/Prado-95-Series.htm body lift was 40mm. Fuel tank guard lifted 40mm

Chris

Send me PM with an e-mail address and I'll send you the guide. Here is it playing in some mud http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ogJefncgUc

The only modification that I have made to LB since owning it is to add a car computer (there is a thread on here somewhere). Also sadly seeing as I drive it I hardly get any pics, but here are a few that I have of LB in action.....

Now before anyone makes any comments about wheelies and drive shafts.... I know, I know... first thing I did when I stopped was to check and make sure nothing was broken :naughty:
