    Default Dead Pilots M109a3

    I ended up with a M109a3. I started on this project for some one else and things changed due to medical stuff on their end. So I ended up with it. Luckily it's in pretty good shape. Just changed all the wheel cylinder, wheel seals and re packed the bearings. She runs great just needs some tires and some paint.

    This one is going to a bit different from the M36. It will end up getting getting some air ride seats and some other comfort upgrades. No plans on the back yet but that will come soon once I finished the M36.

    I gotta find the latter for the back and I'm gonna try and find a Whistler turbo to start with. 20190112_134711.jpg20190112_134743.jpg20190112_133016.jpg

    Nice addition to the fleet. Lots of potential.
    I'm not saying let's eliminate all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

    Well one thing marked off the list already. I was able to get my hands on good take off C turbo. Finally was able to change it out today only took about an hour. 20190112_134549.jpg20190522_124344.jpg

    Love the interior views. I have the same wood top shop tables, nice to see where they possibly came from.
    O Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee. My friends all drive Teslas, that won't work for me. Worked hard all my lifetime, no help from the DMV. So Lord, won't you buy me a diesel Humvee.

    I'll be keeping all the internal electrical stuff that's for sure.
