I hate the door hinge bolts

I managed to break an impact screwdriver bit on one AND WAS ALREADY REPLACED WITH STAINLESS STEEL!

This thing is going back together with copper antisieze on everything.

That sucks. Funny enough I never had rust bleeds until I replaced my bolts with stainless. Now I am contemplating the updated hinges but I am convinced if I have them painted, then put the bolts in, they will scrape some paint and I will get bleeds.

thoughts?

I don't mind a little rust showing, I am repainting some old style hinges alpine white and coating them in lithium greast before putting the bolts back in.

Of course, hinges are the least of my concern.

I understand why people want stainless on their rovers (I understand about rust, LOL)...

but it seems to me that if nothing else on the truck is stainless, then adding stainless steel to the truck is going to prompt further corrosion of other parts (and both aluminum and common steel are going to corrode before the SS).

Doesn't adding SS induce corrosion elsewhere, if not the bolts themselves, like in the surrounding metal?

You are correct, sir. The result is usually rusted body panels instead of a rusty bolt. People prevent this outcome by isolating the bolts with nylon washers. I don't think that method is 100% foolproof, though.

SS is not galvanically active with normal steel. It is with alum. SS+alum=no no

My truck is getting put back together with new galvanized metric bolts (where needed) slathered in wurth copper antiseize and then the heads are sprayed with white lithium grease.

I thought the body panels on 90's to be alumin[ium]? Won't the SS bolts impact that?

Just asking. A while back I had a conversation with a LR professional and he was against using SS bolts, as we specifically discussed the door hinges, for the very reason that it leads to other, perhaps more major, problems down the road. IIRC, he seemed to think it better just to use common bolts and keep an eye on them, replacing as needed.

Nothing that the door bolts touch is aluminium.

The discarded carapace from a NAS truck that shed its old exoskeleton and moved on to become a beautiful butterfly - ahhh!


That is a bastardization of biology, but you get the idea.

it must be, but last time I was aware of it, it was a hybrid in name only. more like the 2 carat weight rings that are made up of 20 little diamonds. only these stones are spread across 2 states.

This be diamond. Last count, diamond had parts from 10 trucks. It is still spread out over two states, but it is in many more pieces than before.

Since I have a spare room that is about the size of a 110 in the house, I am "mock" assembling the body and interior inside as a way to keep track of all the parts. This should make for a good picture when I am done with mock assembly.

ROFL, ya'll crack me up.

I have room in my basement to assemble a 110. Getting it out would be an issue though

BTW Ron, your not impressing me. "the one that got away" has parts from 7 or 8 trucks just off the top of my head

Mock assembly of a 110 from parts in the spare bedroom.

Dude- you are off the hook.

I thought I was bad- both the hearth's in my place are covered up with rollup door mechanism parts and my den has 4 door cards and the closets upstairs have a complete set of td5 stationwagon interior parts but I know I'm over the top. RenChing has a brand new bulkhead in his dining room.
But a mockup in the house ?

I live alone and I have a four bedroom house with an attic and a basement and now a fairly big garage. I operate under the vacuum theory of rover parts--where there is space, rover parts will flow in.

To be clear, I am not going to assembly anything inside I can't get in and out so the tub, top roof panel and chassis/axles/drivetrain will not be inside, just the rest of the body and the interior. This way everything is ready to go back on the new frame in sub assemblies.
