So I have been at it for a few days now...stripped all but the roof and sides - focusing on the cab and the interior and the bulkhead. Remediated all the surface rust on the bulkhead, converted the rusted areas and then resprayed with a primer/filler for imperfections. Came out rather nice

I decided to concentrate on the interior versus the exterior - as it was such nice weather to paint! So I stripped it all out, took it outside and went to business.

Also did the Kodiak Mark IV as well - the core is in fantastic shape, so now it is all nice and shiny - ready to go back on.

I have the cab interior finalized - I hope that by the end of the day today the rear will be done.

Then I will order the AP Towers rattle cans in the Pastel Green and do the interior...get her absolutely done on the inside - ready to roll.

Here are some pics

That's funny, I did some paint work on the cappings for my 90 where they were rusting a bit as well...the weather had us both thinking the same thing!

I also am finding it hard to believe you're making this amount of progress on your Series, when mine has somehow been sitting for about a year and a half! I need to kick my arse into gear on that.

You might want to consider replacing the interior upholstery while you are at it. Not only does new upholstery give your cab interior a new finished look it also does good job of reducing noise and adds thermal insulation. A bare metal interior acts like the inside of a drum reflecting sounds and aluminum is a very good conductor of heat and cold.

Exmoor Trim makes a kit for the kick panels and gearbox tunnel that is a factory style insulation with hydura cover. It looks nice, reduces engine heat inside the cabin and helps reduce sound levels. They also have floor mats that are a lot more rugged than the factory mats. Exmoor has improved their elephant hide material for seat covers and interior door panels. Installing the interior door panels also helps reduce sound levels while adding additional thermal insulation. Especially if you add insulation between the door panel and the interior panel.

Exmoor trim products are good quality and provide that factory new finished look s well as helping to keep sound and cabin temperatures under control.

Just a suggestion. I'm sure others will reply that the stripped interior look is better and easier to hose out. But with all the work you are putting into the interior you might want to replace missing factory interior panels.

Impressive. I formally retract the name Credro and any suggestion that you are in any way shape or form Pedro-like, expressed or implied.

Thanks TeriAnn - your site and the work you have done has been an inspiration...as they say "this ain't my first rodeo"

I have done exactly what you mention in the two previous ones I did (an 88" & a 109") - although the 109" came carpeted, I just made sure it was perfectly done - it made a huge difference in that one! Plus the resto that was done prior had the white foam stuff in the doors behind the trim pieces - that was an awesome addition - I guess they did that prior to Dynamat.

Speaking of - I may plan to Dynamat as much as possible - still up in the air about that as it is glued on? I think first I will do the new tunnel covers etc - basically the full interior fir out. I have also been looking at Wright Interior matting from the UK - that is the bomb!! But pretty heavy. http://www.wrightoffroad.com/

Anyway - all after the new year as I have to now wait until the silly season is done and we get some more 60deg plus days!!!! Fingers crossed...

rear done

Finished up the rear tub today...some bloody PO had carpeted it sometime in the past. Dang glue everywhere - but some strong elbow grease - and some sanding, a lot of scrubbing and cleaning with Purple Power then water/rinsed, then vinegar wipe...DONE.

Primed and ready...
