I was able to get to the fuel filler this weekend. I was concerned the cap from the older style filler would not fit in the side of the tub opening for the newer style diesel fillers. The hole size is different but the size of the inlet is big enough to reuse the locking cap.

I made a template from the old tub, then traced it on to the new tub. Used a reciprocating saw and a hand file to finish. Only took about 1 hour. Actually, it took me 2 weeks to commit to cutting up a brand new tub--that thing cost more than my RRC!

Yup, I scored it with a punch.

Looking good. Seems like a good time to replace the u-joints though.

Yeah I checked them and they don't seem to be loose or have any play in them. Is there a better way to check them? They look old but after cleaning them, I believe they were redone recently.

It's just one of those things that are cheapand easy to rebuild and do wear. But if you think they are good, you should be fine. Worst case you'll be pulling a driveshaft or two sooner than you'd like

With my luck Charles, that will be during Gator football season!

Trying to get 1 step closer to painting, I took the tub cappings off (I prefer galvanized cappings for that old-school feel, especially with recessed door handles) and noticed LR apparently paints after putting the cappings on. Also removed the door top to get at the cappings and prep them for painting. This is gonna be a very time consuming job. I do not look forward to paint prep!

Awesome. You'll be glad you painted under the cappings.

Yeah I have been doing some rehab on my series and the prep work is very time consuming. But again you'll be glad you did it!

Thats because the 83 had galvy cappings that would have had to be installed after paint.

Yeah my 83 tub was also painted under the cappings. The white tub is from a 2008 with painted cappings. I wanted to use the galvanized capping from my 83, that's why I took everything apart. Well the cappings are not the same. The newer painted cappings are a little "longer" on the inside where it is riveted to the side of the tub (not length wise). I'll take a picture and show you after I get home from work.

It's a pity because the 83 capping has thicker material too.

Yeah I really wanted to reuse the old ones. Here's a pic. I tried to line them up but it's just too far. Also removed the cappings off the split doors. Drilled through 3 rivets on top and just popped them off.

That is odd with the cappings. I just bought some new style one piece cappings off of a 1997 110 I think. Not sure exactly and they line up perfectly with my 83 rear tub. Weird why yours do not.

This is funny as you are trying to make your tub older with the gas cap etc.. and I am trying to do make my old tub newer. I had to have a blank made that would fit into the filler neck area to accept the newer style fuel filler!

Take off the little seal on the top of the tub and they will fit, or well, 84 cappings fit on a 1993 with that technique. Take the skin off the doors and have the frames dipped too.

There are no seals on top of the tub. Do you mean on the side where the holes are?

Tyler, that's hilarious. I just love the way the older Land Rovers look. I could have gotten a newer spec 110 but I was purposely looking for an older one, like my Series III. I think the hardest part will be finding someone to reproduce the stripping on the side of the truck.

The two NAS 110s had seals in there under the cappings which made the older style cappings not fit.
