I hope mine comes out that nice! Mine should be back from paint in 2 weeks. I’m painting on chassis so mine might not be quite as nice.

Wow; that's a comprehensive tear down. Great color and kudos for matching the interior to the exterior...the only way to go with a color change. Any pics of the chassis and what do you have on the back? Cheers....

no pictures yet,
cab also gets sound/heat proofing before going on.
but in a nutshell, new cab, new tray with tarp, new gearbox, new worker gears, 170hp turbo engine, new tyres
hopefully ready by mid November
MogCentral are doing a great job!

They are old Michelin XL G20’s. They are the 45-46” y’all variety. Though they are probably down to 44” now. The voids between side lugs are too big for the Unimog chassis design on road. They appear to cause the classic SBU shimmy at high speeds. They do ok off-road but are a bit over rated for a light truck like mine.
