Senza Legno, Senza Pontilli

Ok just got back from the east coast where my Italian in-laws live apparently the translation of "No Bastoni. No Chiodi Ricurvo a due punte" actually means something along the lines of No Sticks, no curved nails of the two toes, so after much discussion & research the title will have to be changed to "Senza Legno, Senza Pontilli"


Hello all, been kicking around the idea of doing a skoolie conversion, so today I picked up a 1988 Crown Pusher with a cummings engine & auto trans, Since I'm Italian by marriage I'm naming it " No bastoni, no chiodi ricurvo a due punte " which means " No Sticks No Staples" Got it home and 45 minutes later had all the seats out, I just love my air compressor & impact tools.I'm figuring about 2 yrs to get the project done because I also have to work on the house remodels to keep the wife happy speaking of which boy is she gonna be pissed when she gets home

Re: No bastoni, no chiodi ricurvo a due punte

Welcome! Love the looks of the older Crowns and there are several here to ogle. Is your engine mid-ship? Are they all? And one trick that has saved more than a few guys has been to tell the wife..."I really need your help with colors and fabrics". Not being sexist here 'cause...a). ...it's usually true...and b). ...it works so often. Just be sure to show her a few really good pix of what "other women" have come up with.
