Wish you the best of luck I’m also restoring my second lwb high roof mk now in Norway. A good tip is to start with what you think is the hardest. Makes it so more motivational and fun when there are only small easy bits left to complete it.

The first mk i bought and restored (fixed rust, dents, painted it and got it road worthy and inspected) was all stock, then i bought some 2 inch shackles, looks good and was able to fit 33s pretty well. Made my own fenderflares from a truck trailer flare that i chopped up

The car im working on at the moment has a 3 inch lift kit installed. Leafs and shocks

Rust is just natural weight reduction.

Hmm, chassis extensions and heavy leaf packs. I gather this will be getting a PTO winch?
