Off-road tuning of UAZ "loaves"
The brainchild of the Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant, UAZ"Loaf", almost always subjected to any tuning. Often redo this minivan for an all-terrain vehicle. All that is needed for this is just a fantasy and a little money. In this article we will give an example of how to make an off-road tuning of UAZ "loaves".
Changing the appearance
Most often this process begins with painting. To make it very simple - just pick the right color and execute a template, which will indicate all the contours of the shades. It is desirable that it is airbrushing in the style of khaki. Also worth noting that this process (painting) is not the original for used minibuses. After 5-6 years on the body of each "Ulyanovsk" there are various rust and corrosion marks. Therefore, before painting it is necessary to carefully treat them with a special liquid and primed. Only after this, you can start painting.
Choice of tires for a minibusUAZ "loaf"
Off-road tuning always includesmanning cars with special tires designed for driving on rough terrain. Most often, the owners choose the 33rd rubber. But do not forget that the car body should be raised 9-10 centimeters above the frame, otherwise this wheel simply does not fit into the arch. Tuning UAZ "loaf" can be done without this procedure. To do this, you need to choose the wheels of the standard diameter, but it is possible that they also do not climb into the arches (off-road tires are always wide). Although, looking at today's range of tires, you can pick up for your iron friend exactly what you need, and without any structural changes to the cabin.
UAZ "loaf": tuning of the salon
Photo of the inside of the minivan, of course,striking its "ultramodernity." Its design remained somewhere in the 70s of last century. It is clear that for today's conditions such a look of the salon will obviously be outdated. Therefore, motorists remodel the entire interior of the car. Salon tuning of UAZ "loaves" includes a complete replacement of seats for newer and more comfortable, updating the instrument panel and soundproofing all around the perimeter of the minibus. As for the first element, it is best to choose imported seats from foreign cars. The second element can not be completely changed, but only replace the fasteners.Thanks to this ride on the "loaf" will no longer beaccompanied by a constant creaking and rattling. Noise insulation for later, too, should not be postponed. Off-road tuning UAZ "loaf" is almost complete without sound insulation, as the noise and vibrations in the cabin are very annoying for many drivers. By the way, the main source of this problem is the engine. It is located between the front seats and as a soundproofing material the manufacturing plant provides for the placement of a large shield trimmed with conventional dermantin, which in practice is very, very inefficient.
