Default Steini`s new ride...

Hi guys,
in case you were wondering how i kill my time since the Blazer is sold...

This is what i bought:







Specs:
MY1989
302.000km
2.4l gasoline engine 111hp
5 speed
automatic locking hubs

Plans are:
-Remove all the rust (it`s worse than it looks)
-Skid plates
-Front bumper with winch, 2 8" HID lights and 4 6" HID lights
-Rear swingout with the spare tire, hilift, shovel and jerry can mount
-mild lift
-camper conversion

First thing is to get it ready for the TÜV, the german safety inspection. And i can tell you, those guys are really hardcore...

First thing was to buy some supplies:







Then i started working:











Not the nicest work, but it`s the first time i`m doing bodywork, and you won`t see it anyways...

And some more:








My "shop":

Good luck with your new project. I think, it will become an awesome ride.

But please remove this Hippie-Atomkraft-Nein Danke-Decal. ;-)

Thanks guys, the story continues...

Made me a super ghetto car lift:



Right side welding finished:









Looks like an incredible bad job with the flash, but it looks fine in person...

One of the last few spots:



My dad fitting some metal in:



Me cutting the rust out:



Finished:



My sister sanding it:



Me wirebrushing the underside:



Result:





Then my sister and my neighbour helped me painting it:





Result:



Me thinking:



Some bondo action on the rear door:



My dad welding on the side door:



Me welding in the last piece on the underside:



Then we started masking the car:



And sprayed it with some bedliner:







Wouldn`t be one of my rigs without some stickers:

This is how the exhaust looked:



And the exhaust manifold:



Few pics from yesterday...

It rained all the time and the L300 doesn`t fit in my shop, so i placed some tarps over it:





Wheels primered:



And painted:



Doesn`t look that bad anymore, does it?





Placed some more stickers today:





Now it`s time for some mud flaps restauration:





This is where i`m at today...
