Very nice. Is the 2 door top still for sale? Or has it already been sold?

Admiring your reconfiguration project - especially the Airlift bumper/rhino setup - any leads on where I might find those parts....just bought a GP M998 - Thanks Walter

Metalman, amazing vehicle. Question about your build: What are those pieces that run along the sides of the roof, above the doors on both sides? Some sort of blast shield? I'm looking for something similar for my old-style GMV. Thanks for the great example!

Well, I said goodbye to my last M1113 today. Here are some pics, everything on the truck is factory new, it really came out nice.

In addition to the rear seats and hard top, I also upgraded the electric panel behind the front passenger seat to 1151 type, added the full powered turret and fully functional AFES system, although the harness and bottles are not in yes as the C-Divide was left out at the request of the new owner.

Here are the trucks arriving at my shop almost 2 years ago, what a great day that was! We even asked the carrier so load one shelter truck on each trailer in case one of the semi's crashed so we wouldn't lose both.

Powered turret and 4 man VIC-3, all the nuts, bolts and washers are correct.

Hi did you do any thing with the shelters or did they go with the m1113?

One of the shelter trucks may be available intact. I know the new owner will not remove the shelter.

Beautiful work....just getting all the armor coat nuts and bolts is a PITA...you always need more then you have.

Thanks Steve. Yes, getting all the nuts, bolts and washers correct was probably the hardest part..other than letting it go to a new owner of course.
