    T-posts $350 obo or free to a good home!

    Thanks for the T-posts Tom! Much much better than the ones I have. And with some repairs and galvy dip they will be better than new. DM if you want my old B-pillars - they are crusty but may work for your project.

    "Things are falling in place so nicely that I'm getting nervous"

    As long as no one was hurt the outcome doesn't look bad at all - it seems like it could have been a lot worse. I know those bike racks aren't cheap but it looks like it saved you lots of damage on your 110.

    200tdi 12L with 300tdi VVT and shorty R380

    Bump - I'll have this engine/tranny out soon and would like to not trip over it while installing the R2.8 $3,000 and will include the 1.4 LT230 I had pulled from another 110 last fall. Located in central NJ - I can delivery within a 200 mile range for a fuel/toll money.

    Cars you have owned

    There was a good Jeremy Clarkson/Top Gear episode where Clarkson was saying that Saab was supposed to use most of an Opel platform for a new model but Saab ended up changing almost all of it. My buddy was telling me some of the 9-3's can be made to put out a lot of horsepower. So surprised...

    Cars you have owned

    The Saabs probably made Land Rover ownership seem easy ;) Nice to see they were all classics (the '94 Cab was a classic for that year wasn't it?) And mostly Turbos too. I would love to get another classic 900 Turbo

    Tool Deals Thread

    I have 2 of those exact Husky boxes I got when I redid my garage in 2019 early 2020. Actually worked out very well for my setup with the 2 wooden tops as a workbench. I think I paid $350 for each of them so the $200 is a great deal as you can't even get a wheeled wood top Huksy for under $790...

    Bring a Trailer Defender Auction Criticism

    Lot's of cool and overall nicely done parts and a clean overall look on that. But small stuff like the axle breather, missing screws on the headlight surrounds falls a bit short. Saying "Borla Exhuast" is pretty bad when it's a Borla muffler welded between what looks like some random pipes...

    R2.8 Real World Experience

    I know it's like a "paid advertisement" but the Four Wheeler magazine guys have used R2.8's a lot in their builds for UA. Fred Williams and Dave Chappelle drove one under water, on water and then on UA last summer.

    R2.8 Real World Experience

    Good timing to read this for me as I just parked my 110 into my freshly cleaned garage bay so I can start taking apart the front end in preparation for the R2.8 and long BH R380 gearbox that have been in the garage for almost a year now. Sounds like the R2.8 is a good match for the 110. Not as...
