Awesome photos of an '84 Trooper from the Netherlands

You don't see many oldies in this kinda shape, so I had to post these! I love the retro '80s paint job and the thin style early bumpers. This is one clean Trooper!

Changing out the gas tank on the RS...

In order to fix the messed up drain plug threading, I had to change out the gas tank. This solved the problem.
Old tank out.

Impulse Refresh - Stage 9

So now we are up to date with the Impulse rebuild.  Here are some photos from last night's work.

I took off the bottom plate on the throttle body to discover a quarter century of corrosion and a nicely rotted gasket.

Impulse Refresh - Stage 8

This post will get you up to where I am with the rebuild presently. The motor is in and going back together nicely. Should only be a few more weeks before I have it running again, with any luck!

Isuzu Impulse Refresh - Stage 6

Continuing on, here are more pics of the Impulse's mechanical refresh. Some parts cleaned up, and then the motor and trans going back in after a year of work.

Impulse Refresh - Stage 5

Its been a while since I posted updates of my progress on the Impulse, so I figured it is time to catch up. The pics below are of the motor after I got it back from the machine shop, as well as photos from the following few weeks of progress.  You will see that I was able to find a v-belt of the right length to delete the A/C compressor and associated parts.
