Pinzgauer Restoration

Project Description

Edey FX undertook the modernization of a Pingauer 710K for the purposes of demonstrating the integration of an Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) system. All original vehicle components that were reused were media-blasted and repainted, along with an inhouse designed steel external frame, a swing out spare tire mount and a front bumper. The body was lifted 7.5 cm to improve tire clearance. Hutchinson military bead lock rims widened the overall stance by 15cm. A 5 cylinder turbo diesel engine and manual transmission were integrated with a custom transfer case. The suspension, brakes, wheels, and lighting were updated to modern standards. All the components were desgiend and fabricated in our secure, highly equipped 6000 square foot facility.

Steel Frame

An external steel frame and roof rack was designed to bolt on to existing mounting locations on the Pinzgauer 710K. The additional 5cm of width per side accommodated the added wheel offset. The frame was designed to be removable if future updates were required.

Front Bumper

The custom front bumper and skid plate were designed to secure to existing Pinzgauer mounting locations. The final sheet metal design began with a carboard mock up to test the fit and proportions. Our team of designers then converted these findings into a CAD model. Our in house CNC plasma cutting and welding facilities were used to fabricate the final design. 

Body Work and Painting

The original Pinzgauer 710K body was sandblasted to bare sheet metal before a primer was applied. Using a projector and masking tape, a custom urban camouflage scheme was applied. 

Frame Restoration

The original Pinzgauer frame was media-blasted and epoxy painted. New engine and transmission mounts were welded to the back bone to accommodate the new driveline.  

Engine Upgrade

The original air cooled gas engine was upgraded with a Mercedes turbo diesel engine. The engine was reverse mounted to place the transmission and it’s shifter next to the driver. Reverse mounting the engine also allowed for easier serviceability from within the vehicle with the engine cover removed. A custom transfer case was designed in CAD and machined on our CNC milling machine.
