TIGER OWNERS: What Red Flags Do I Look For?

Postby ExtraParts [OP] » April 21st 2018, 1:09am

Hey guys I am fortunate enough to be going out to take a second look at a Tiger XL tomorrow and I'm very likely going to buy it. This vehicle is not tip-top or even close, but for the price its perfect and I'm confident I could handle the immediate repairs I see. My question to you is what are some things you wish you would have known to look for when you bought yours?

The inside isnt terrible, but it could use a bit of love. The engine started right up, but after a minute or 2 it started losing power and acting like it wanted to stall, but would come right back to life and it would happen consistently about every couple of minutes while the owner was showing me the rest of the van...

Anyway, I'm super excited and hopefully tomorrow I'll be starting up a new build thread on this beast.

I have covered a lot of this in a previous post, somewhere.
