    Really thanks Ben!

    I need only to rotate my compressor, insert a grill and make a support for my switchS...I don't like my solution at now, but is just working.

    I've tested only a little bit on the snow that was really freezed, after that I don't need the locker for this trip...I'll test it better :D

    Hello!
    Last saturday we went on mountain, one of my friend needed help. The previous week too much snow and ice, and he remained blocked into a tree so he had to come back home without car!
    Naturally car didn't start easer after one week with cold temperature, but after 1.5 hours of work we recovered it!
    Like always I didn't make much photos...I know...but sun & snow was really incredible

    Hello my friends

    Happy new year to all!!

    We went back on the mountain, amazing views, a lot of km between snow and a little bit of mud

    But I see that there was a big problem on the roof.. RUST is going forward inside the ROOF!

    In 2 places there was only the paint...if I touch the paint a make a hole!!!

    First think was eliminate the hole but I see that the rust is INSIDE....

    Now I have eliminate exterior rust...and closed the hole with grout, but I know that inside the rust is killing my roof...

    Can I solve my problem from interior, unmonting the upper coating or I need to cut?

    Great photos you've posted yota, I love to see snow in the forest especially with a Cruiser doing what it does best amongst the trees!

    As for your roof, I get the impression that you'll be chasing holes until the whole roof eventually crumbles.

    Patching up is one thing, holding it back as it becomes evident, but I would have thought the only real solution would be to find another roof panel complete, either off a scrap donor vehicle (accident write-off or similar) or sourced as a 'new' body panel.

    Prior to fitting, you could apply treatment to stop the same thing happening again, presumably from excessive condensation from the inside.

    Of course, replacing it (gutter-to-gutter all around) will need the skills of an auto panel 'expert' but I would have thought you could do this yourself with care and some basic welding skills.

    Hi friend from Torino.
    Your renovation activities wth LJ70 are impressive. My case is nearly identical, but I bought LJ70 in Slovenia a year later than you - november 2017. Now I am starting to put some new life in my car and would like to have some suggestions from you. We live relatively close (comparing to main folks - Aussies) only 600km away and in similar Alpine environment. I wish you great trips and enyoj your nice car.
