110 Td5 renovation thread

I'm a year into ownership now. Some things have gone as planned, and some weren't planned (like the broken fuel injector ). One thing I learned from 12 years with my NAS90 was when the right deal comes along on a part, take it. If something needs fixing, fix it. Well, it's time to deal with some corrosion on the rear upstand, put in the Puma rear seats and Dinitrol the underside.

First up is to get it all clean on the underside, not just clean, but REALLY clean. Took off the bumper and winch, soaked the underside with Castrol Superclean and went to town.

So...
- pressurewash / steam clean the underside
- remove the rear seats
- remove the floor and upstand
- remove the old Mid Crossmember,
- clean up and treat the rust on exposed areas under the open floor and upstand
- install the crossmember, upstand, seats.
- then Dinitrol the whole thing ....

It's been a great truck so far, and well worth the investment of time and money...

So far so good... most of the floor screws came out, only had to cut a few. Rust is manageable so far, no perforations, but there's lots of work to do. The galvanic corrosion on the upstand was getting nasty, but no surprise as it was leaking like a boat!

Peeling back a few more layers. I figure, while I'm at it I may as well check on the C posts. Not too bad, but, could be better. Now that I'm here, I could just grab a couple new ones from YRM and weld them in. I think it's probably better to do it now, rather than later.

Is this the tip of the iceberg, the first thing I'm going to do, without planning on doing it?

Nice. lot of rust there, but that's par for the course on these. Td5 is a great engine to tune up too.

Pretty much NO progress over the lats few weeks. I've been away, off to the factory at Solihull for the Celebration Tour, absolutely AMAZING!

Met up with Julian from Global Landrovers while I was over there. Great guy! Took me green laning in Hertfordshire, then went for a proper Pub dinner. I was going to take the train to Hastings, but he insisted on giving me a ride (90 minute drive each way!) Thanks Julian, come visit Canada, I owe you one!!

Just starting to get back on track with the truck. While I was away, my C post repair sections arrived... Still needing to bring in a few more parts before re-assembly starts rolling. Contemplating galvanizing my rear capping while the truck is just sitting there... hmmmm

Hi Michael. Factory tour was beyond amazing.

Let me know when you are going to be here, I'm not far from Don's shop, I could come down and meet you. Yes, they have my truck there.

I have about 150 great factory shots from JLR public relations web site. On tour, you're not permitted to take photos, even if I could have, they wouldn't be as good as the ones here in my drop box. Feel free to download

So, off came the doors.. then I start thinking... "what am I not galvanizing my B pillars?" Just need to weld the C pillar sections into the correct position, then take out the entire piece on either side. If I'm at this point, I think I would be kinda crazy not to. (Darn it, OCD keeps costing me time and money!)

I mean, who WOULDN"T want this kind of bling in their rig???

Probably not, but I'm sure they would have an appreciation for it...

Made lots of progress last night. Removed the seats, interior trim & front of the headliner. (it was nice to work on the interior rust free bolts)

Then it was back to the rusty stuff, all the sill bolds and everything holding the side frames on, drilled the remaining rivets. Fought with both sides for well over an hour, trying to figure how to get these off without destroying them! (Reminded me of one of those puzzles you get with 2 nails twisted together. You try for hours to get them apart, then all of a sudden, just as you are giving up, everything just comes apart). Well, this is just like that, but without the coming apart bit.

I figure the best way is to pull out on the front, then drop it down so the B pillar is clear of the roof, then slide if forward and clear of the rear bodywork.

Well, by then it was 11:30, and I figured I should call it a day and take a fresh start with a clear head in the morning.

Hey Scott,

I Saw the truck this past Sunday. Picked up the repair panels for the bulkhead from Don. Drove right through the border with them. When I was stopped I told the custom folk that I had repair panels to declare he asked alcohol or tobacco? I said no. Then he told me to drive on.

I was telling Don the truck looked familiar and he said it was your truck. LOL.

I thought I'd give you a call but I had to head back to Seattle from Whistler. I heard it got some good snow this past few days.

Anyways, keep up the good work!

Decided to go the route of new side frames. After close inspection of the old ones, the time required to re-build was going to be excessive, going new should give us a perfect fit, especially when you consider a proper B pillar fit will give you the best chance at proper fitting doors.

Ordered last week and they arrived yesterday. Did a test fit to ensure everything was good before stripping the e-coating ad galvanizing. Both sides are a perfect fit, B pillars line up exactly to the bolt holes, and a bang on fit to the rear body. Well worth going the Genuine new route, cost a few $$ but in the long run, I think it was the best decision.

Finally put something ON the truck for a change. Fit the new ignition lock, this will give me 1 common hey for all 3 doors and ignition. The Puma doors use different lock tumblers than the Td5 door, so changing out the ignition lock with the doors just makes sense.

Off to the galvanizers today. Should have a YRM shipment of goodies in today or tomorrow... It's like Christmas!

make sure you have a good stabilizing platform to bolt them to so they do maintain that lovely fit and alignment post galvanizing.

Looks good. I wouldn't worry about the t pieces warping. It's the flat panels that warp more. We did a pair of them last year and there was no issue.I'd worry more about the shop running over them with a forklift.

Been a little busy with the holidays to put any time in on the truck... but I did get a chance to buy some SWEET wheels out of the UK. (gotta love the internet!)

These are original Matt Lee steel rims. Hand made in the UK, they have been out of production for a few years now, as the cheap Chinese alloy knock-offs pretty much ran them out of business. I have seen a couple sets of these here, they are pretty nice. I removed and sold all 5 tires in the UK, which is covering most of my shipping costs (worked out well!) Once I get them in my hands, I am going to have the grey powder burned off, and re-powder satin black.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to me!
