Swamp cooler/Portable AC for camping in rear bed...

My son and I tried camping in the rear of my 710M the other night, but was just unbearable due to the lack of ventilation, heat and humidity. I had a portable fan sitting on the doghouse facing the rear with both windows open with little relief. Any ideas of a small, portable swamp cooler or ac unit...

Interesting. I can see a plug-in electric Pinz doable. But a solar-powered Pinz seems to be a steep climb to a accomplish. Hope they can do it!

Speedometer Cable...

My speedometer and odometer have not been working. Decided to pull the speedometer assembly to investigate. Spinning the rear cylinder of the assembly by hand moves the needle and odometer. Also removed the 90 degree adapter to see if that was frozen. That spun freely as well. The only thing it coul...

Fuel Gauge Light not working....

This is a new VDO 301 040 model fuel gauge. The gauge works, but at night, the backlight does not illuminate. I checked the wiring against the Pinz color schematic and the wiring diagram of the gauge. A few things seem off. The two circled areas seem to be missing a wire. Is that correct? See photo ...

Thank you Andre from Fat Fabrications!

Another satisfied customer! Bought a 1972 710M from Andre. He went above and beyond getting the rig road-worthy and helping it get delivered. A complete drivetrain rebuild, brakes, carb rework, tune, etc. He was patient with my questions and always gave great advice on the build. He is a true crafts...

And located within driving distance of Georgia. Paint and mileage are not important. But looking for something with minimal rust, if possible. If anyone has something that may be available, please let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Want something to have fun with the family off-roading and camping in. Plenty of trails you can get lost on here in North Georgia. L...
