Just needs a winch.
So after 17 years it's back on the road with a valid inspection sticker. In the future I will focus on straightening out the body work, but I have other antique vehicles that need attention first.

Looks good. How did you mount those 97+ seats?

That's great to see man. With that military look I would toss something like a 9" in the rear and also ditch the D35.

I bent up some brackets out of 11 gauge steel as spacers and welded them to the floor for the front. One of the back mounts sits on the floor, the other has some washers between it and the floor. The rear is bolted through the 11 gauge steel floor pan.

I fluid filmed the underneath, if you are in an area that puts salt on the roads fluid film all your vehicles.

OP hasn't returned to the forum for a year. Sad to say, but we're not likely to see an update.
