Hello, this is a Steyr-Daimler-Puch Pinzgauer TD 716M Prototype with an Intercooler Engine, ( Engine Number ABD 00002 ). The Modell is factorysize a P93, but the most Parts also the cooling system is from the earlyer P90 modell. It was one of the prospekting Vehicles for the Britsh Army, it was a FFR ( Fitted for Radio) car and has a Ramsey Winch mount.I have the order to enclose this Vehicle from RHD to LHD.

This is going to be interesting and looks like a big job. I noticed the bumpers dip down at the centre. My P93 bumpers fit the same way

The only Problem! The Air Tunnel is at the P80 and P90( with big Nose) the same, at the P93 Modell the tunnel was made in bigger size ( 2 inch or 5cm). And this bigger side is allrady at the Co-Driver side. Now there was a problem to made enought spare room for the Accelerator, the two gearbox lever and the handbreak.

 

Luckly i have a new but cutted front floor assembly to take messurages.

After spraying polyester filler, the paint collapsed- too much paint. So the only way- all down and new pain upbuild.Started with grinding..

remember the pic shows you the different beween the two tunnel wide as sampel on the LHD P80+P93 up and P93 down.

 

Middle Cover´s for P93´s: left ist the LHD, rigth is the RHD ( the RHD is a Prototyp from factory, you see the cut in piece)

 

 

because the Body is factory size a RHD, the tunnel is bigger on the left side. I had to cut the cover of a old P80 , and laminated a piece of plastik, Filler and Paint

 

 

 

Painting further parts and the front panels

Over the rigth Headlamp will come a Nato Plug, thats why there are cable. The now mounted Headlights are in original style- the Clear-Glass optic didn´t belongs to a Pinz.
