Very Unique Build "ORION"
I stumbled on to this forum and think it could really help me in the design and build out of the interior. First is is an Orion it is a German built one piece fiberglass body on a Hanomag Henschel Chassis. They are very rare in Europe and the club their thinks this is the only first generation in North America. I wanted a real driver so I pulled the body and and have been working with some fabricators to customize a 1997 Chev 1500 chassis to fit (stretched box ladder back linked and bagged). I wanted a the Vortec V6, felt it was the best compromise of power, size and fuel efficiency. Body work is done and it is in epoxy primer, is is now on the chassis and we are doing the electrical, fitting dash and the linkage.
I hope to have it home to start on the interior in a few weeks. One of my first concerns after we finalize layout is insulation?
Thinking about Lizard Skin?
Has anyone tried it?
We want a four season rig so I need to but some thought into it.
