Its not a JEEP!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also its not a sammy so if you were gonna say that just don't.

 

This is my Mothers Suzuki 1980 LJ 80 that I am goining to be trying to put back on the road for her :thumbup:

Finding parts is um well impossible (320 guys its about like that).

So I need to just do basic stuff, breaks, belts/hoses, transmission rebuild :confused: .

 

So here is a pic for you you pic hungry monsters.

That's a cool little Suzuki... the minute I saw it I was thinking you should swap a hayabusa motor into it....

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.

You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

I will try and get more pics and some vids soon. I found some breaks and a couple other odds and ends. We will try and stay stock as long as we can because I don't want to resleeve Toyota axles. The thing is so small that stuff doesn't want to fit underneath it's noticably smaller than a samurai. Some people have had success with front discs so we may go that way.

Yeah those things have some of the narrowest axles i know of. You might be able to use a Dana 44 from a ditch witch though :)

This looks like it is going to be interesting. Look forward to watching the build.
