Troopy Transformation

I would like to introduce the Troopy….

We often call it “Busted Mustard” due to its colour & current state.

Eventually we hope it can become “Trusted Mustard” as this old beast has a big job ahead of it.

This old HJ47 Landcruiser Troop carrier is about to be stripped down piece by piece until its a bare chassis .

Each individual part will be sandblasted any necessary repairs carried out &  resprayed ready for a ground up rebuild

The engine will be completely rebuilt new suspension & a lift kit will be installed

Interior wise, there will be a total transformation with new seats & a few upgrades to bring it in to the current century with some fantastic technology to ensure the kids stay entertained on the long trips. There are so many decisions yet to be made but plenty of time to make them. It really is an enormous project one that intimidates the heck out of me due to my total lack of mechanical knowledge but my husband who has done things like this in the past is completely at ease with the whole process.

The boot area will be fitted out for optimum storage for travel & camping as this Landcruiser is going to take us all around this beautiful country starting with a trip through Western Australia next April but that is a whole other post.

I will be sure to keep you updated with the troopy transformation so don’t forget to stop by again soon.

Cheers
