Adventure Box on a M35

That is the truck M35A2 (deuce and a half) and the tan box in the back is called a S280 Shelter. I am planning to turn that box into a mobile garage/workshop/bunk area.

An M35 is a military vehicle that is a 6x6 cargo truck that has a 5 speed manual transmission, 2 speed transfer case (high and low) and mine has a multi-fuel engine. Mine has a top speed of 50 mph @ 2100 rpms. Wiki

***Sorry for the blurry pics I wasn't planning on doing a "build thread" until a few people asked me to do one.***

This will be a slow process, I was in a motorcycle accident back on Oct 18th and broke my forearm pretty good (both bones) so even 2 months since the accident I still can't use it much or for very long. Link to Xrays and stapled shut NO GORE

Love at first Sight

I picked up this S280 from a from of mine who was kind enough to bring it most the way up to me and then use his crane to load it in the back of my truck that I bought from him.

The interior of this box used to be a radio communications shack so it had a bunch of shelves and radio mounts inside it.

Deconstruction Begins

and continues
