The Heap. A Gen 2 Tracker/Vitara Build

A few shots of todays Monstaliner treatment.

Interior, entire front clip & firewall, and all 4 wheel wells received 2 heavy coats.

The interior will be sparse. Door panels will go back in, and flush panels in the rear, and likely some good floor mats, but no carpet to speak of. So the heavy coating will (hopefully) provide some needed sound deadening...

I love Monstaliner and it's one of my favorite things. It does a great job and holds up well, and I never saw any fade with colors, though YMMV. Going to be doing it on my Ranger shortly after we finish some oxide mitigation on the rocker.

This is beyond impressive and has been fun to watch.

It is great stuff. I applied it to our camper 4 years ago.
It never sees the inside of a shop or garage, and zero fading or any issues of any kind.

As for the tracker, I ran across this on FB a while back, and figured Id use it for inspiration.
Figured something similar, a camo of some sort using the same tri-tone of the camper would be pretty slick and match the camper well.

Chassis back in the shop.

Fluids and dry-crank day :cool:

Gear fluids for front and rear diffs, transfer case, and transmission. Some conventional castrol for first start/run for the engine.
Then hook up oil pressure gauge, battery, and crank it over. If all goes well, engine cranks fine and it builds proper oil pressure then the body goes back on the chassis.

All fluids in, and first crank went well.
10 seconds of lifter rattle, then after another 30 seconds or so gauge showed 45# of oil pressure during cranking, on a marginal battery.
Good enough to move on! Plugs gapped and dropped in, a bit more harness tied up, then the body went back on.

Looking the part now. :cool:
