Yeah it might join his giant, fully armored MRAP on his ranch in Idaho.

Re: Electric 1972 Pinzgauer 710M Build Thread

Thanks for the post. I'm very curious about the project as obviously this will be a needed solution in the future to keep all old cars on the roads. The big question I have about this and some other projects claiming similar plans, is the solar aspect of it. I love what you are doing but I don't und...

Re: For Sale C303 in St Louis, MIssouri

You'll be asked to post pics for sure. It does help to sell rigs quite a bit. How were the seats recovered? Stock looking or some other color? Im curious about the sandblasting and if they really used sand. The way these need to be treated is with softer media as too much sand will usually strip the...

Re: Sound Control: General theory and Pinz specific issues.

I don't know how far you want to take it and what your budget is but I'd first found out if you can reflect that heat first. You could mount a piece of aluminum spaced off the underside slightly over the exhaust pipe to take care of most of the heat. You could also try DEI's "Form-A-Barrier" underne...

Re: Sound Control: General theory and Pinz specific issues.

I just edited my old post with a couple updates. I recently "saw the light" when handling some new (or new to me) materials from 3M and Second Skin. I take back some of my original thoughts on brands and will now only be using Second Skin dampening sheets. The quality is just so far above the usual ...

Re: Bed Liner -- Good or Bad?

They cause rust eventually, or hide it anyway, unless you are in the SW maybe. I think the marketing if those kinds of products, and the somewhat blind adoption of them by pick-up owners, have made them seem like a good idea but when you really get down to it, why are they so good exactly? Seriously...

It's Pinz porn! That battery compartment is rather cool. How big is it in there?

So when are you tackling the issues of those awful tires? :wink:

Re: Jim Mettler’s 712w images

I could pull a still-frame of the 712 from Jim's short film I did, if needed. I'm not sure if any of those shots would be useful for sale purposes but its not too much trouble to do.
