It's come a long way, but still quite a bit to go.

Got a lot more done, should be ready to roll out this weekend. I have more pics, but not gonna post anymore till I have it done other than this.
I was playing around with a bumper I had laying around that I took off of my old Dakota. Didn't like it like this so making a little change.

Well I got it running and had a nice little popping coming from the exhaust. Did a compression test and only had 55 psi on number 1, so I pulled the head and found this. Head is at the machine shop getting redone right now, supposed to have it back tomorrow. Hope so, sure would like to drive it a little bit before I leave for a year.

Ok, it's done as much as it's going to be until I get back from Korea. I will take care of the doors then plus a whole bunch of little stuff.
I think someone has previously regeared the diffs though. With the 4.90 transfer case gears and 31 inch tires I am turning about 3000 rpms at 45 MPH in 5th gear.

Inspiring post. 

A lot of people would have ran for the hills after finding all that rust.  Good on you for saving another Zuk. 

Makes me want to go pull the body off my TT and poke around.
