That is just stunning!
I can't imagine that they were ever that nice even when new!
I've done many "resurrections" but never anything that extensive.
Carry on!

That was a very well done resurrection, and great camera work too.

Very nice. I did want to slap that nitwit for taking it out into the snow for the first ride, but I guess he put in the work and deserves to be the first to start F'n it up.

Highly skilled craftsmen right there! If that was the same person on all aspects of that restoration it’s a rare individual with all those skill sets. And the hours in to that?! Amazing! And the snow will do no harm without salt or sand added to the mix that they put on the roads. Just showing 2 wheel drive fun and what it’s original purpose was designed for! Tastefully recorded, good choice of music, just a stellar piece of work! Thanks for sharing!
