Hi Willi,
thanks; we think that the fuel gauge is highly overrated ;-) ... Timo is of course aware; there have to be holes for the ABS sensor and the fuel pump as well ...

Regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas,
it is crazy which live your pickup had have up to now. I like the body workshop pictures. I hope we will see much more in the next weeks. I am very excited to see how your welder uses the pickup parts. Keep it up.

Thanks Willi,
it's progressing very well, however we wanted to finish the front and the rust issues first. Timo also wants to weld as much as possible in first, before cutting the sedan.

Hi Thomas, I´m still looking for new pic´s of the Body Workshop. I hope we will see some pic´s of the rebuilding parts of the cargo area. I think you have left the botton of your project and you are directliy on the way up. Good luck.

I was just looking at the pictures and it looks like you have still a lot of work ahead .. can’t wait to see the final product!

Hi Thomas, thank you for your offer. Maybe I'll come back to that. At the moment I do not know when I will start with my project and how bad the body really is.

Hi Willi,
German TÜV? Ah, no problem, a bit of respray ;-) ... if you have a car like this, get a body donor car like me. Even if costs some money, it's the cheaper solution. The whole chassis is identical and if you get a good one, go for it!
P. S.: You can also contact me by email (see front page)

Hello Thomas,
Thanks for the great pictures / info, when I see them, then I'm afraid to start my Santos project. I hope for you that your coachbuilder does not give up. Fact is, the bought pickup would not have done it over the next german TÜV.

Thanks, I knew that already and I am active in this forum ... it was a great thread!

Yes, it has definitely been a good idea. You can look in the / 8 forum for special constructions over.
There you can present your BINZ with his number and admire the work of Patrice:

Well, that explains it all ;-) little bit like Alfa Romeo in the 70s/80s, which "started rusting already in the brochure" ;-). As mentioned this car had more than one accident and had orange (original), green and white colour ... As my wife grew up in Argentina, I have a little insight into the country ... I guess everyone understands now, why it was a good decision to use a body donor car.

Hello Thomas, unfortunately no, I have no connections to Binz. I have a little history with the special /8-bodies. All special bodies are based on the CKD chassis, these were only primed and priming sucks water. Partially, the vehicles were not rebuilt until 1 or 2 years later and so the rust had retreated before the car was even a car. Willi

Thomas

Hi Willi,
do you have connections to Binz or to Argentina? Fact is just, that Argentina had financial problems for the last 40 odd years, so spare parts or decent repairs after accidents were just not in the budget. Anyway, it's still an original one ;-)

Hello Thomas,
I looked at the first body work. Wow, I know that the subcontractor's body work and rust prevention has been limited. But what you have there is very strange. Good luck and I hope we see more Body work pictures.
