Hello from Eastern NC

Postby 2troopers » Mon Aug 19, 2019 6:48 pm

Hello, My name is Casey and I am an Isuzu diesel enthusiast. I have owned a 1982 LB pup N/A and presently own 2 1986 diesel trooper II's. I have been searching some answers about parts sources and this seems to be the right spot> I like the fact you are running a decent and clean sight. Maybe I will be able to bring something to the table and contribute once in awhile. Here is a few pictures of my primary Trooper . Hope this is not too many pictures for the intro!

If you don't have a pup you can build one.

I've seen a conversion like that before (or maybe even this one). Are you a PlanetIsuzoo member?

No, I’m not a member of any other group. I am in a couple of Isuzu Facebook groups. I posted a couple of pictures on one of those a year or so ago.

Nice truck! Very clean. Would like to build one of these, if I could find the time. What back glass did you use? What type of glass did you use for the rear quarter windows?

The rear window and surrounding metal came from a Ford Ranger from junk yard. The side windows are plexiglass and the molding around those is cutdown from original side glass! It was fun but a lot of work.If I was going to do it again it would go much faster now that I know how everything was put together!
