Well...the time has finally come and the Moke has been painted!!!!!! :)

I love the Crystal White colour...i went with black texture for the inside, but i am going to get that covered in a black marine carpet.

Looks great.

Thanks guys for the feedback...much appreciated.

I am now disassembling the subframes ready for sandblast and powdercoating.

The dash and instrument surrounds are at the painters getting done in black...so things are coming along!! :D

Hi Fellow Mokers,

Happy new Year to you all!

Good News...Subframes are back from the Painters!!!

I've ordered all bolts to re-assemble everything (Thanks MD for your listing!).

Now the fun part of putting things back together can begin!!

Been a few months...but more new bits have arrived from the painter/powder coater...should have organised them better i know!



Just finished cleaning and restoring my rear radius arms and front upper control arms are well.

I think there is no more old things to deal with anymore..except the fuel tank, need to repaint that!

Hi Gizmo.
Mate I am going through exactly the same process. With a 79 moke.
I just started a post asking the exact same questions.
Interested to know if you ended up re creating the Bermuda Triangle or leaving the bottom inner hull repair out and going with verticle face
