Thanks, I picked up a Progressive liability-only policy online for a very reasonable price.

I received a letter from GEICO today informing me they were cancelling my 1-year old policy because the underwriters determined I had a military tank. LMAO--I wish. Called to politely discuss with no sucess. Sounds like my options are a liability only policy with Progressive or State Farm. Anyone ha...

First, thank you everyone for your replies to my original post. I wish I were nearly as electrically savvy as many of you clearly are. While I THINK I understand what needs to be done to use one of Viair's portable 12v compressors with our trucks, I'm now sufficiently hesitant to simply get a 24v sy...

Thank you Jim. One more question, would you recommend I have the vehicle running before attaching the compressor's cables to the battery with the grounding strap--or should the vehicle be off when using the compressor? As I understand your warning, I should not attempt to start the vehicle when the ...

Using 12v Viair Compressor with 24v Pinz

I've been shopping for one of the Viair portable compressors. While they make 24v systems for on-board air (OBA), all of their portable systems are 12v. I know very little about electrical systems. As I understand it, however, the 24v Pinzgauer uses two 12v batteries in series (that is, two 12v batt...

I noticed CWR's website has been down for a couple of weeks. Anyone know what's up?

Would there be any interest among the Las Vegas area owners online to meet up with trucks some weekend for an informal get acquainted lunch? I'm in and out of town a lot but was thinking about Saturday, November 13th or Sunday the 14th. I'm sure we can find a spot to meet up for a couple hours to me...

Maybe it's time to get a Las Vegas Pinz event put together.

By the way, where'd you get your K painted?

Indeed, the racks will accomodate a number of rifles and shotguns to varying degrees but were specifically designed for the Swiss infantry rifles of the day, particularly the StG57 (PE57) and K31 Schmidt-Rubin. These rifles weren't replaced until the 1990's with the StG90 (SIG550 series). Knowing ho...

My 710M has BFG M/T 285/75R16's on stock rims from the previous owner. I was hoping to lower the overall height of the truck a little bit to better fit into a residential garage--I'm rubbing against the header a little bit pulling into the garage and I'm getting tired of loading a couple hundred pou...

Paint Oxidation

I was thinking of trying to bring back the finish of the exterior paint a bit as it shows the usual heavy oxidation from long periods of being left outside. Since purchase, I've garaged it and was wondering if there's a product that might bring back the paint finish some--or am I wasting my time? Ev...

How many Pinzgauers in the US and Canada?

Does anyone have a rough idea of how many Pinzgauers have been imported to the US and Canada? I searched the forums for a similar thread but came up empty and I've been asked by curious people while out driving around. My general sense is something like 500 or fewer in the States. That's just a comp...

Thank you both for your replies. I don't have the smog paperwork in front of me regarding the failed smog test as I'm out of town but I made sure the tech for the failed smog test converted the vehicle weight from kilos to pounds. When I took the Pinz to the 2nd echelon smog shop for diagnosis and r...

Smog Failure--One Category--Need Input

I'm in the process of registering my Pinz in Nevada and took it in for a smog test before going to DMV. It's a stock '75 710M that just had the fluids changed. It passed all categories except idle for CO (allowed 2.5%, tested 8.5%). It's running great and has stock carbs with 125 jets (previously ho...

Help with identifying Pinz 710M accessories

I finally have my new (to me) 1975 Pinz 710M and am very excited about finally joining the Pinz club. The previous owner took great care of it and included many extras. As I looked through all the accessories the previous owner included, it became clear that this truck was some sort of soft top radi...
