I have a long-term project in mind. I want to turn my well loved element into a Sea King helicopter themed vehicle...or maybe a Pave hawk...haven't decided yet. It's an '03 AWD in elephantine grey which is already a good start. the first thing I have in mind are front seats from the aircraft and a mild suspension lift. As far as the rest of it, I am open to suggestions, including things like flat (non-gloss) paint, threshold warning markers, landing lights, gauges etc. Being in the Southwest USA I have some access to plane parts from the salvage places outside Tucson...I think. So have at it!

Great idea, Lebateur. But two factors to consider are the security of the seat mounts and the limits of raising. There are threads on this but the long and short of it is that if you raise it too much, the CV joints can hyperextend. If you go with a commercial lift kit, though, you should be fine. Just don't expect it to sit like a monster truck!
