Now the rest of it has arrived, but I'm not in Tarija, just got pictures to report. Monday my body guy will start grafting the 94 Saloon front to the 75 pickup rear. My brother-in-law promises pictures daily.
That will give me the 1300cc engine, automatic transmission, AC, roll-up windows, etc. I'll sell the 8" brakes that came on the 94 and use the 7.4" Cooper-S set I bought originally. Still have to figure out how to route the AC with the wood dash I bought from MiniSport, but that is minor at this point.
Also, since the front clip came with the adjusta-rides, I ordered a set for the back that should be here soon.
I'll be there in a couple of weeks to take a good look at the engine and see what I need to order so I can get it going.
And locally I picked up a comfortable set of Toyota seats that I will reupholster with the door panels. Looks like the picture name is too long to display automatically, but it is on my site with more shots.

Here is a little more, showing how the inside of the door frame looks on the finished side, and how the roof corners are modified to accept the window frame of the roll up doors.
And now I have the parts to assemble the engine. This all came in one nicely packed box from the UK (48 hours). Bearings, rings, water pump, thermostat, kit to convert to double timing chain and tensioner, alloy valve cover, complete set of gaskets, etc. Also picked up a set of 12 pt sockets since that is what the rods are assembled with, and large sockets, as I had to borrow 1 1/2" and other large sizes to get it all apart.
