This will be fun to see, Derek.

Maybe that isn't the 90 he sold, maybe that's the other one he was building when I was there a year ago!

Pardon my metallurgical ignorance, but is that sandblasted, primer'd, or galvanized?

Thanks, do you know who the go-to is in Portland for galvanizing? I'd like to galvanize the rear bumper on my 110 that I have in the Seattle area, but Seattle guys seem to have problems getting galvanizing done...one of the Seattle indy Land Rover shops has someone in Portland that he uses exclusively for galvanizing old frames - any idea who that might be or who might be small job-friendly?

That's awesome! I had mine dipped.

Could not find a galvanizer within reasonable distance who would take the bulkhead.

Cowboy, try to coordinate with Derek, as the shops usually charge by weight, and the more the cheaper...

Cowboy I will have a pile to galvanize soon if you get me your bumper I will toss it on the pile. It will need to be stripped or dipped prior.

Mock-up. Just received Nicks LS motor mounts. Time to hang an engine! I don't think I have ever named one of me vehicles but I broke tradition and named this guy "Ted".

So why did you powder coat over galvanize?

OK Just that in your earlier posts you were talking about galvanizing. Just curious if it was some other thing that made you change direction. We are all interested in both short and long term outcome of these kind of decisions.

I like where you are going with this. I am thinking I'd like to do a 109 for my next build. Can't wait to see the way the patina thing comes out. It almost seems like it would be harder to keep it that way than to make it a shiny restore. Keep up the good work.
