Not sure on tap light brightness just a thought.

I'm thinking I want to stay away from solar it's just not anything I'm into.

Awesome find! I've been looking for one for a while. And I have years experience working with fiberglass. I'D have it decked! If you find another one, Let me know!

Great find and a fun project. Whatever you decide, post the progress here. I'd make the paint match your X and even go as far as used rims to match as well.

For electric, I'd probably go with a portable generator. Don't know how much you want to restore versus replace, but if it were me; I'd custom fit some of my old camping gear in place of the stove.

Good luck and keep us up to date on the progress.

They might even have some used stuff or advice on restoration. It may even be a diamond in the rough. (worth a lot restored back to original.

For a Buck Fiddy I'm jealous as heck!
A bit of (unsolicited) advice. Gut it before buying anything. It looks pretty solid but you don't know what you have to work with until you get it down to the basics.
This should make a sweet "build" thread.

Ever meet someone that accidentally bought a set of 35s?

Yeah man I couldn't believe the price either. I plan on gutting it as soon as I have time. I am going to change the layout on the inside. Hopefully after I'm done moving I can start the actual build.
