I bought a samurai to make with the non rusty bits of my current samurai.

Wow - that one looks to be in really nice shape. Nice score. Plus you'll have big stash of parts as left overs. 8-)

With both of them, now you're in the triple digit horsepower! HA!

Looks clean, that's for sure.

It has no engine in it, I'm trying to find a 1.6 on the cheap for it.

I'm really leaning toward Toyota axles and a 1.6 dohc engine, but we will see.

It's just now getting cold here and I don't have heat in my garage so it's probably going to be a standstill for a while.

But I did begin the tear down

So... wait. You're going to have two functional Samurais after this? I thought this was just a donor car.

That's fantastic.

No, I'm only going to have one when done.

Basically my samurai is the parts vehicle for the new one.

So my original one is just a frame right now, bought a 1.6 16valve engine for the new one.

Still trying to figure out what tire size I want to run so I can figure out the suspension.

Is it in? Does it run? Inquiring minds want to know!

It's in, it runs and drives.

Just need to get shocks and shock mounts, exhaust, radiator fan, build my axles, and fix my steering.

Zuk, what are your thoughts on the early 90s Pathfinder with the 3.0 V6?

I don't like nissans

I worked for them for a while and they left a bad taste in my mouth.

Should have told them to eat more pineapple.
