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.
That is crazy. My shipping cost, including all customs fees, was 90 pounds. My order was for some pretty heavy and bulky items though. I was able to get everything done via email with Penny. She was great. Prompt, courteous, and answered all my questions including updates on available items in stock-a rare thing from what I read about UK email correspondence.

Awesome post. I look forward to more pics as it comes along! You'll have to keep us posted on how the bulkhead/footwell repair holds up once this is up and running for a while.

It gives me a lot of inspiration to get me going on my 83 110 if time ever permits .

Jon,

When did you get yours? Post some pics! If the 110 is running, I say just keep driving it. I have owned this one for over a year now and have driven it all of 3 weeks. I should have played with her more before breaking her down. Should have gone wheeling with the old chassis and gotten it good and dirty. Now I will always think twice before driving her through the muck and rocks.

Everything is looking great. I bet you are very excited to get it on the road.

Did you add power steering to your truck? If so, how did that process go. Is it a costly procedure? I know it would be a great improvement from where I am sitting right now.

Hey Jeff,

My 110 came with power steering but the reservoir was leaking so I just replaced it with a newer type reservoir. Is yours RHD? I think I read somewhere you can use a disco PS setup if yours is LHD. Should be pretty cheap here in the states. I think Doug (Maryland 110) knows how to do it.

Ok So I removed the thermostat and noticed it was made in France and is set at 82C. I also does not have the vent ball to prevent air locks. My replacement is by Adwest/Waxstat set at 88C with the vent ball. Anyone know what the correct temp should be? My RRC 3.5 efi is at 88C. I assume the Adwest is the correct part.

If it was made in France, are you sure it wasn't installed backwards?

Haha, I did import her from Canada, maybe she's French Canadian. Do they do things backwards? I always find French Canadians to be very nice and funny.

I would go with a 82C termostat being that you are in florida and won't care if the heat is weak in sub zero temps.

Naw, just the old joke that the French are always retreating and running away.

We serve with the French and Germans over here and the jokes are merciless:

German: Want to buy French rifle? Excellent condition - only dropped once.

German: Why is French armored vehicle facing gate? Armor stronger in the back!

etc...

Haha, awesome. I dated a girl from Paris in college and she is definitely not the type to turn and run. In fact, she would be the first to throw a punch in the nightclubs. Goodtimes...

New tub from Stephen last weekend.

I see you got T-pieces too! waxoyl the crap out of the inside of them before you install and remove the drain plug at the bottom in the sill right below the b-pillar.

Yeah, I already have 2 cans of waxoyl ready. Stephen and I have been looking for T-posts for a long time. I was only after the T posts but, understandably, Stephen didn't want to part it out from the tub so I bought the whole thing. Figured it was the only reasonable thing to do. It was available and Stephen is located less than 20 miles away. New frame, new tub. It comes complete with 60/40 rear seats, bench seats in the back, seatbelts, seatbelt brackets, middle floor, and all door accessories. Now what to do with the old tub? Hmmm.

Got the old kick panel off and new one on. Also got the T posts on. Following Jim's advice about the line trick to fit the tub, I'm not really sure what I am looking for. How does this help me line up the tub? Is it for height or where the tub fits on the frame?
