Transforming a Mercedes w460 into a 500GE  |  More info

Our long time family G-Wagen was a bit slow after 31 years, so we put a mercedes w126 m117 5 litre V8 into it. There is hardly any info i could readily find on how to do this, so i put this one together to show how we did it. Im now very happy with the vehicle which sounds great, is far more useful in the city and has no issues with sand (the only previous weakness of our heavy G) at all. Economy? Son't ask...
