1988 Nissan Desert Runner journey

Hi all, 

Just wanted to share my project thus far.

 

Technically it started with me lusting after the Tamiya King Cab sitting on the top shelf of a hobby shop, but even when I managed to get one years later, I never actually had any plans to get a real one.

Long story short, I found it in Nashville, while casually searching the web, which since I'm in Canada, necessitated a road trip. It was nearly complete (had all the important accessories save the tailgate net) but had been sitting for at least 6 years and the engine was dead and a mystery.

I've been hacking away at it since 2018, and I'm very close to getting it on the road. (I have to weigh it and safety it)

Wow, great work!  I love those and the Desert Runner paint job (saw it on IG) looks awesome!
