I am Tony and this is my first time posting on a forum. This forum has been a great help to my project. Since I always use it a a resource for my restoration project I thought I should contribute and at least share my build. Except I cant figure out how to post a pictures yet.

One newbie to another, welcome to the forum. Nice project. Looks like a pretty clean little LUV. Looking forward to progress photos.

I like posting the photos because your guys pics have helped me be able to put things back together when I ran into an issue. There was times when you previous problems were the same problems I ran into and I was able to figure them out by reading your post. Its nice to finely be able to talk to people that love this little truck as much as I do. You dont see alot of people showing up at cars shows with this truck and its nice to see people save these trucks from becoming scrap metal.

Yes, Tony, certainly is a "labor of love." It looks like you're coming right along. Keeping your LUV stock is for the strong because parts are not plentiful, so it's much easier to mod it. Looking forward to your next post.
