Damn Greg, with all those Rovers you shouldn't have any problems. Post a pic of your '85!

So let say I know someone who picked up a NTO 2008 tub and wants to put it on his galvanized chassis. How would this someone prep it for paint? Should he sand the new paint down to bare aluminum, etch, then paint or should he just wet sand it and paint? What would Nigel do?

Do not sand or wet sand... Just red scuff bright pad the entire thing. Then sealer and paint...

Sealer? Is that like primer?

Drill out the rivets on the cappings and repaint the whole tub, then paint the cappings inside and out (better yet galvanize) then reinstall cappings.

Yeah I plan on either reusing my old galvanized ones or picking up a new set from RDS.

COOL on the soft top. Interested to see how that goes together.

No, the soft top parts are for my Series III. It's been on the back burner for a while. I bought an 88 hoop set off ebay and the idiot sent me a 109 set with 2 left sided drain channel and 2 right sided door seal. It's been sitting in storage for a few years. Figured since I was ordering overseas might as well get all the missing parts.

I am keeping it a SW. I have always liked the SW.

Reading over some of Charle's post I saw somewhere about the heater core, I took mine apart. I cleaned and repainted the box. After spending a lot of money to get the correct foam insulation that goes against the bulkhead from Craddocks, I ended up using regular insulation foam strips from home depot because the OEM piece did not fit. Bullocks!

Also had to fabricate a new bracket for the newer-style power steering reservoir I got from Buckhorn Imports.

New box of parts came in today. New heater hoses and a new thermostat for a piece of mind. Along with some other random parts. This should be the last items to change on the truck before I refill all the fluids and turn her over.

Looking good.

Did you figure out your B pillar problem?

Been a while since you have posted a picture of the entire thing, can we see a picture that shows the entire 110 as it sits right now?

How many hours per week do you think you are working on it

But this I probably should have done as mine still leaks...

Yeah, I threw money at it and nothing happened, so I threw more money at it and swore at Nigel's mechano set and a new 2008 take off tub complete with T posts showed up! Try it sometime. It really works.

It doesn't look much different then from a few post earlier. I just installed the heater box, power steering reservoir, and air filter. Waiting to change out the new heater hoses before getting the radiator back on. After that and a shot of whiskey and I'm turning the key on this baby. I rather find any engine gremlins now as opposed to getting everything back on and finding out later. I am pretty sure I labeled all the wires correctly but you never know. Hours per week? I only get to work on her every other weekend.

"Some goodies from John Craddocks. Only took a week straight to my door"

sounds like good service, but what did they charge in shipping. They quoted me $50 to ship a glow plug timer relay, which weighs 12 oz, maybe?!
Maybe the guy just did not want to deal with the shipping so he threw out a crazy number. Kinda turned me off them though.
