Rare, good looking color, split rear windows, manual trans, Recaro seats with seat heaters, power front windows and overall great curb appeal.
Most of the last two years, entirely during my ownership (in 2[hidden information]) the truck underwent extensive restorations to frame/chassis, engine and interior.
Body was originally repainted in 2[hidden information] by the previous owner in the same factory color and is still in pretty good shape. I did have to address a few things on the exterior but overall the paint was in very good shape. The body work that was done during my ownership was mostly on interior: rear floor had multiple dents. With that all the trim: rubber seals on doors, windows, hinges and exterior body moldings were replaced. New windshield and new windshield rubber trim/seal. New headlight surrounds. New sill rubber trim. New rear vents. Driver's door hinges had some play/stuck pins and needed to be repaired/replaced.
Body came off the frame. Chassis was sandblasted, treated and pretreated for rust; primed and refinished. Rear left shock support and spring perch, plus a couple of body mounts had to be welded in.
Brake lines were replaced with new CoNi customs lines. The rubber portions were replaced with factory OEM. Front calipers rebuilt. Rear brakes rebuilt. Diff lockers cleaned, seals replaced. New fluids. (diffs engage in 5 seconds). New Sachs factory spec shocks with new rubber bushings installed. Panhard rod bushings replaced. Thrust arm bushings replaced. Left rear hand brake cable replaced.
Plastic fuel tank installed instead of the original steel tank which eventually always rots and leaks.
Front axle rebuilt using all oem seals (Mercedes Benz/Corteco) and SKF bearings and CV Joints. New gear oil (front and rear axle) and grease (front).
Engine was found to have low compression on one cylinder and with multiple oil leaks, was rebuilt partially. New piston rings and valve guides and seals, head resurfaced - installed with new headgasket and all related seals replaced. Bosch injection pump (fuel distributor) disassembled, cleaned, adjusted. Spark plugs and plug wires and boots replaced. New auxiliary belts (alternator and water pump). New coolant and thermostat. Radiator flushed. New Oil (December 2018 at 61200 km)
Transmission was checked and adjusted. Shifter linkage bushings replaced and shifter adjusted to factory spec/clean easy shifts. Throw out bearing replaced. Rear main seal replaced. Clutch disk inspected for wear (more than 75% left). Transfer case mount replaced. Transm and transfer case oils replaced.
Interior was restored. Headliner and seats were recovered as needed using factory materials (Karo Grey). Multiple interior bits replaced / adjusted as needed (bulbs, screws, clips, etc).
New wiper linkages and all related seals and nuts.
All locks work including the ignition, all with one key. All electronics work.
A ton of work and a ton of new parts went into this truck. I tried addressing everything, including the many small things which may not matter overall but feel so good when they re done (air filter housing for example, inner fenders, many little trim pieces which could easily be left alone, tons of new bolts, nuts etc..., refinishing the rims). I know i am forgetting a lot but basically my goal was to have nothing to do except drive it and enjoy it.
