Hey guys, I thought I might document the revival of this newly acquired 1991 Montero 4x4. I picked it up yesterday in some out of the way place in South Dakota. It was one hell of a drive but totally worth it. It currently runs and drives but has zero brakes. The emergency brake cables are cut and the brake lines seem to be broken. Its got a decent interior but it definitely needs a good cleaning along with the engine bay. It seems some mice decided the v6's spark plug holes and valley were a great place to live for awhile. Thankfully they never got into the interior of the car and I can only find one wire they decided to munch on.

Overall its in good shape. It starts up, the engine runs well, the steering is tight, and the four wheel drive works awesome. It has some minor surface rust but no full on rust, in the pictures you can see what looks like rot but that is just surface rust mixed with moss LOL.

Anyway on to the pictures. I'll be working on it today and starting a list of parts it needs.
