I was going to ask if the paint seals those seems, but in retrospect that's just a silly question . Glad you had fun on your trip. Do you have any emissions tests in your homeland?
The blast goes right down in the seam but the powder doesn't so it stays nude I reckon.
The trip was awesome thanks. No emissions testing here. We have 1 tenth of your amount of people in the same space. The time will come though. What we do have though is "fob in a smokey car" where you can call a number when you see a smokey POC and they'll get a visit from the authorities. That's cool.
So I'm close to pushing the button on a CJ10. Not quite the FSJ truck I'd like but it will help me get there and should be a lot of fun. My question is did these come out with a diesel from the factory or is it only an Australian option? Current owner says it's how it came new. Nissan diesel presumably 4.2L no turbo. Has a few little problems but nothing I can't fix. Interested in your input good Sirs.
Edit: disregard, I found out they came out with a 3.3L.
Been doing a little research on these vehicles and I think it will work out ok.
Straight up I'll need a fuel tank (got thrown out for some reason), kits for clutch and brake master cylinder and a few other things.
Wifey said "no" if it wasn't registered, it's not so I guess have a small battle ahead of me.
Has been used for roo shooting so there's a hole in the roof where the spotlight was (they put a hole in the roof and have a handle straight to the spotty for moving it around).
Has a big steel tray and drop sides so it will be a good work truck/bench.
Wish me luck on picking it up tomorrow. 3 hour drive there and hopefully no nasty surprises when I get there.
The only picture I have so far:
Well it turned out to be a pretty sweet CJ even though it's not a particularly good looking one. I'm going to start a thread so if you're interested head over to that. It will be titled the same as this post. See you there.
