Its a chully bun

JM your moke looks pretty good - did you pull it down to make it even nicer or has it got somne hidden problems, apart from the wiring?
I wish mine had looked that good when I bought it.

Just a quick update. Repainted subframe, going to rebuild this week with all new rubber cones and bushes, as they arrived from England this week. Also cleaned the engine bay and rubbed down, now in primer.Shall put more pics in the week.

Thanks guys, but that is the finished colour
i just matched it to the rest of the Moke,the
colour is Toyota blue it is pretty light in colour
but am really happy with it, Photos don't do justice.
Rember this is just a freshen up not a full restoration.
Thanks Ainsley.

Hi JM,

Good progress there! You've probably voided your warranty by taking the compliance plate off though. ;D

I eventually found that Choke wiring diagram if you are still interested....

Go for it Jim,
Keep us up to date with what you are doing and just keep on doing it.  I totally understand the SLACK bit, Morton has been 18 month without much love and attention.  I will join you soon in getting our Mokes back on the road.  

I think Martin is in the lead, but join us in the race for completion,

The list is:

Ian     Before Christmas
Martin       A couple of months
Scobby      A month or two
Me Dev      Some time before Easter ( I am going to Wagga)
Newie    (Who bloody knows)
Moe       Suzi Moke 2032
The Angry Ant has overcome 77Devil.
Watch out for the Ant!

Struth Dev thats a bit harsh 2032 is a looooong way away, but probably a realistic time frame ::)
Actually I have been busy finishing off the trailer so I can get Suzi moke to an engineer
which I hope to do before Xmas.

G'day all
A little up date well it has turned into a full restoration as i have pulled all the wireing out now.
As i have pulled so much of the moke apart i think i should keep going :o.
Anyway i just had rollbar and front and back bar and 5 sun rims and front grill sand blasted for $150 bucks pretty good deal i thought
And all those bits are getting powdercoated for $220.0 s
that sounded pretty good to, i think there must be a recession on in some areas.

shall start on body soon not to much rust will put some pics up in near future.
Thanks everyone  jm.


Regards JM
