I remember that one being for sale (Jersey wasn't it?). It looked like a tidy base vehicle I remember looking at the pictures n many an occasion.  :)

Sorry Brian, this story new to me, talk about trying to teach an old dog new tricks!! Yes to both, the black grille sounds interesting, will test the idea when the outside gets a paint job & yes it is the same one that was advertised in Jersey, as you say, a good base, but it had quite a bit wrong with it, plus we've added a few bits, all in all an expensive exercise, but it will hopefully turn out ok. Cheers

Do not think there is any other type of unimog but expensive!

No probs, it happens :)

mogs are expensive to buy, but if maintained correctly and serviced regularly, they dont cost too much to run, more than your average transit obviously. the main thing is that generally when things do go wrong with the running gear it is expensive to fix.
