Re: 1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Thank you! Andre did a nice job on the fabrication of the custom top and external accessories and was a pleasure to work with. I expect that you'll be happy. To be clear, the interior cargo storage platform/bed was designed by me and fabricated locally, in Las Vegas NV. That process is a story in it...

No. It's been on my "to-do" list for sometime, but I've not gotten around to it :roll: . I'll post back here when I do.

1975 710K Restomod (10yr Anniversary)

Hi all, This month marks the 10 year anniversary of the purchase of my 710K. At a point when my motivation was greater than it is today I thought that I might put together a thorough retrospective restoration thread. Alas, that surge of motivation was spent on other things, so I'll instead share jus...

K Interior Light Cargo Nets

Hi All, I found a couple of cargo nets the work well in the interior for stowing light cargo against the ceiling of my 710K. I assume they would work just as well for any K-model. Both were pretty inexpensive... My visors were becoming overloaded with beanies, sunglasses and baseball caps, often dum...

Re: Lots of cheap heaters popping up

I think these are worth a test. I've got my eye on a 24v gasoline model that I intend to purchase sometime in June to replace the factory unit in my 710K. I'll post back with my impressions.

Re: Interior lights

Another option to consider is LED strip lighting. Pics below are from my cargo area, but would be effective in the cab as well. The relatively inexpensive WenTop LEDs that I used can be found here on Amazon . Mine are wired directly to 24v, but they can alternatively be run from this AA LED battery ...

As promised here is the modified installation schematic using two 24v to 12v 3a/5a converters.

Re: GPS Speedo

How did you make the install? It appears that our dash hole is 3 5/8 and this one is 3 3/8. Did you have any issues putting it in or making it stay in place? Did you need a spacer or have to make something to get it to fit correctly? The Speedhut unit is 84mm to our 86mm mounting hole. It felt like...

Re: GPS Speedo

Cool find. But, it only operates off of 12v... I guess you hook it up to a converter or step down? The Speedhut unit works like a charm. I installed the $10 DROK 3A 24v to 12v step-down converter below to achieve the required 12v. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-c0f9_Sa4cq4/VVI9n-Xp0SI/AAAAAAAA0...

Re: Nevada Trophy 2013

Unfortunately, no. I was recovering from a concussion at that time and wasn't able to drive. :roll:

I'd definitely like to pursue it again next year.

Re: TOP 10 best Pinzgauer modifications for improving performance If the topic is improving performance , then the Goatwerks 2.7 liter engine and EFI rank pretty high- having driven with and without those mods. I second that. I'm driving with both the Goatwerks 2.7L engine and EFI and, as someone w...

Re: Fat Fabrications hard sides and roof

Andre,

If you get rolling with this concept I'll immediately be in the market for a 712M. I'm excited to see your design for this come together. :twisted:
