Today is a big work blast and there has been lots of progress. I will try and get pics of it this weekend. I am not the best at taking pictures and it is kind of jammed in the corner. I am just glad it has a inside parking spot. So anyhow, stay tuned.

Yeah, what Peter said.

Anybody got an idea what part of the Rocky Mountains Westy is from? I was reading on a hotrod forum about someone concerned about a deposit they got for a Craigslist sale where the buyer hadn't shown up for a couple weeks. Turns out, the guy was helping family members evacuate from fires in Colorado. :!: :!:

Hey Westy, are ya okay? And what about that cool truck?

So it was a super hot summer and really busy. The Splitzgauer went into storage last May and only saw a couple visits since. Today we brought it back over to the shop and started getting a plan together for Round two. It still needs a bunch of work. Hopefully by next Spring it will see a couple days out. So I will start putting some updates and pictures up over the next few months. Thanks for the interest.

Welcome back. Glad to hear you weren't displaced by the fires. I can't wait to see more progress.

This is in my top 3 favourite builds of all time and I am glad to see things moving right along once again. Thought of your truck when I seen this pic and I thought I would share it with you for some added inspiration :wink:

Amazing work. Thanks for posting it.

Arent you a little worried about that winch mount though? The approach angle is pretty severe and will kill progress in lots of situations.

Yeah it was definitely a concern and a consideration. in the process. It has been a while since I saw a regular Pinzgauer. How tall is the front hitch pin, the bottom? I am probably two inches longer in the front and I have 24 inches of clearance below the front fairlead. It probably won't see as much trail running as some 710's. I have been thinking about making the Splitzgauer a little buddy. Like maybe a Baja Bug on a 710 chassis. I know one project at a time.

Just wanted to say thanks for the update - I have been wondering what's been happening with this project.

The build quality looks good - keep it up!
