I'm building, well having built to my specs, an M715. I'm doing some of the work but I dont have time or equipment necessary to do it all.
18 years ago I brought an M715 and I did restore it to stock myself. It was awesome and rolled in many a parade. But an old 67
vehicle is less than reliable and I wanted to drive it whenever and to where ever I chose. So I decided to blaspheme the stock military
vehicle restoration gods and start a modernization retromod build. I am now full on heretic.
I wont post a sh-t ton of pics because I've done that over on the M715 Zone but I thought I will share here since I am also an FSJ fan
and have owned a couple Wagoneers in my time. Lets face it an M715 is just a beefed up Gladiator, ergo an FSJ.
I expect the build to be done in a month or so.
