Awesome.

Why are you here then?

You have been raked over the coals at Expedition Portal, and now here too. Obviously something you're doing isn't right.

The process is going and end of it is always more pleasant than the beginning.

Exterior paint is completed. Pretty happy with color and results.
Next will be new interior, engine, and transmission.

Any suggestion what should I check while it all apart?
A Little bit of interior work. Checking all wiring. Soldering and cleaning wires. I'm not sure if carpet it was a good idea or not. There is still plenty work left. Want to finish it up before first rains.
I kind of like it. Have anyone done it?

Finally, some rust repairs in engine bay completed, old rhino lined cleaned. Primed and ready for paint OM617A hooked up to transmission ( Thanks to Vadim for hooking up with power steering Gearbox, and engine mounts and some other things ).
