Good morning everyone!  Slowly I have begun my restoration.  

 

-1515737445.jpg

 

I am going w/ a Military Theme. OD Green, White star, the whole nine. I picked up a couple 5.56mm ammo cans which will serve as both my battery box and hydraulic tank. All the hardcore PK Owners I do apologize as I am going off the beaten path in terms of it's original look.

Took the rear tires and flipped the rims for a wider stance, increased the rear footprint by roughly 8 inches on each side.

Intake and Exhaust valves new, full gasket/seals on the engine, etc.

 

Fuel tank was cleaned out, not much in terms of any rust flakes or abnormal corrosion.

 

Frame sandblasted and primered, the rest I just dropped off to be sandblasted and primered.  Will have those back by tomorrow.

Will post pics during and upon completion. In any event, thanks for reading.

Welcome to GTT. If you really want it to look military, add lifting eyes(for the helicopter extractions). Most of my engineer equipment had On Vehicle Equipment(tools) and a tool box. The ammo can/hydraulic tank may be more trouble than it is worth because of the seal. Find a local NG unit that hasn't existed for awhile and mark it up for that unit. Have fun. Good Luck, Rick

You can build them same as everyone elses or make one that stands-out!  I have no problem with people doing what they wish with any brand. Long as it looks good and is workable.  Not sure I like GI stuff, mine are more MM yellow, heh!

No it will not be for show, I like to call it a "Practical Restoration", it will be used.

Great Ideas Rick!  In regards to the hydraulic tank / ammo idea.  I probably should have been a bit more specific.  I am placing the hydraulic tank inside the ammo can.  I have the holes cut for the lines etc.  I was able to pick up a smaller battery which fits inside the other one nicely. I do LOVE the NG unit idea!  That would be so awesome!!  

 

I do have an idea of building a "mini gun" off the right side of the motor, pulley driven for rotating.  I know, sounds crazy, but ya never know!
