Howsit going guys..
I'm new to this forum, thanks to those that helped me start, just thought I'd share my project 4x4 build with you guys, hopefully get some input with what's going on, I'm new to the 4x4 scene...
I started with the chassis, everything is completely stripped, & painted with a "carboline" range of paints for protection, before it goes black...
I'm painting & reconditioning the diffs & springs this week as well as changing all bolts & nuts along the way
I've managed to find an original 18r motor, which I reconditioned, ready to fit...however, I've got both a 4 speed and 5 speed gear box, if anyone both have the wrong belhousing, so I'll be figure that out at a later stage, I want to keep it as original as possible, I'll try to upload some pics, let me know what you guys think, also, would anyone know where I might be able to find the arches for the bin? & a replacement bin floor.. thanks guys

Lekker bru!! Are you leaving the chassis grey, or going black?
With each replacement of parts, a car slowly becomes Chinese.

When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

I'm painting it black, I just want to give everything a good protective coat first, the van was plastered with rubber lining when I got it, so I'm trying to get it as close to original as possible...
Anyone with any idea of where I could get a belhousing for the original 4 speed box to fit on the 18r motor?
