Bummed - work has been hectic - I started a new job, and so my time has been spent there.

Will have the parabolics done all around today, then the last thing is the servo booster and brake pedal. Some previous owner cut the clutch foot pad on the pedal in 1/2 so I am swapping that out too. Getting the pivot pin out is proving to be quite the challenge!!

Anyway - garage is 25degrees right now so as soon as the propane heater has done it's job I will get out there!

Finally got the Parabolics on. Amazing stance change!! Looking real good.

For the record I took a pedal assembly apart and didn't use the press. Just drifted the pin out with a punch

OK - so now I am ready for finishing up the brakes & clutch. Hopefully I will be able to get that done next weekend. Assuming I can get in the garage tomorrow and paint the wings all will be cool and just one wing and brakes and clutch to do.

Def be ready to show off at Wintergreen. Issue is what to drive to Wintergreen - RRC to do some heavy wheeling - or the Series for some real light stuff (greenlaning?? )

I am trying to get some pictures up...I have a new computer and so I am trying to get all my "stuff" organized - pictures are on the back burner though. Here are some of it as it is now. Couldn't do a lot today as wifey needed some attention! But I got the right side wing on, and both front wings are prepped for painting. Actually the whole truck is in either Pastel Green (bulkhead and all interior) or the "army" green self etching primer.

BUT - next week....Thur to Sun no one will be home but me and Sassy...so a lot of garage time next weekend.

Funny, mine looks exactly like yours right now (hood and left wing off). It looks like I'll have tomorrow off (other than painting for the wife) so hope to get a helper to bleed the brakes and clutch and get her back on the road!

Over the weekend we (Carlos came over to lend a hand) re-mounted the pedal towers for the brake and clutch, got them ready. Now I need to fab up a mounting bracket for the power booster - of course my good mate Huff will do that - and then re-plumb brake lines and clutch line. Then she be done!

Of course I also have to cut up the left wing to fit the brake master cylinder and booster.

So, I just fiddled about with some of the stuff, like the front bumper (got that on) and nose, tailgate etc...contacted Ike for some missing parts and this is how it sits. Still missing the jump seats and door cards that are with the auto upholstery guy in town that is redoing them...I think next week we shall see if it can be fired up!!!

Looking good. How come you need a mounting bracket for the booster?

The brake tower is off a defender (wrong year model) for the booster I have (older 80's Defender). Couldn't get a matched pair?

So I just need a bracket made to mount it.

So the pedal tower is for a later 80 type booster and you're fitting a 50 type booster on it?
