Default Before/After Sami Restore Project

Bought my Sami a few months ago. It's a 1987 Sami stock suspension with 29x8.5x15 Super Swamper TSL's. The engine is still the good ol 1.3L hopefully one day i'll be swapping in a 1.9 turbo diesel! For now i'll be swapping in a Corolla Carb in. Interior has been sprayed with vortex bedliner which I think has been the best choice i've made with it so far. Let me know what you guys think.

Before:





After:

Sweet rig, dude!
That color is just badass! Almost a shame to get it dirty, huh?

Thanks man! Yea I cringe every time a branch hits the side lol. Oh well I have it to play off road so it's inevitable that it'll get scratched up. Just hopefully not anytime soon!

Put lotsa mothers polish (or other good quality) on it before it is too scratched or pin striped and it will surprize you how easily they polish out after a good run in the bush. How do you get antique plates on a highly customized vehicle like that...ours have to be same as out of the box...no visible changes...only upgraded out of sight safety changes. ( brakes, seat belts, etc)
Good looking rig.

I'll have to get it waxed maybe throw some zymol or mothers on there hopefully that'll help. Here in Virginia as long as you have a primary vehicle and you don't drive more than I think 250 miles from home you're ok for antique plates which also means I'm exempt from safety inspections and emissions testing. Virginia is really strict on traffic laws but not for antique vehicles. Black plates don't ever get messed with.

Bren, I love you ride. I have a 1996 Sami with the Land Rover type suspension - it works well except I broke the #4 piston, having that fixed then its off for body repairs. I like the idea of the body liner coating - will think about using that on mine when the repairs are being done. She is my everything ride my car can't go where she goes as it (the car) is only for the other stuff.
