It seems I have the odd door/latches/striker plate of the transitional 83/84 110's according to your other post. I personally do not like all the linkages they used to place the inner handle farther forward. I am trying to convert them all back to the earlier Series III lift up handles on the inside.

I've done the same. The only problem is the interior door trim for the second row. There are multiple good options for door trims for the front (RN, Iron Goat, LaSalle, Exmoor...), but for the second row you're limited to series style trim from Exmoor or Lasalle or something custom or convincing ECR to sell their BR second row trims. IMO, the ECR trims would be the nicest, but I've been unable to convince mike to part with a set. While I like the Lasalle headliners, their door trims are less compelling. If you come up with a solution, let me know.

Paul I am just going to run it bare like in my series. Less chance for trapping moisture. I may cut up some checker plating like I did for my Fj40.

Can you share the part number you used for your door handle conversion? Which striker plate did you use?

For the second row I'm using FQB500130 with spacer MUC7809. On the front and rear doors, I used the type of striker you pictured in the other post.

If you are forgoing door trims, Have you thought about getting the inside of the skin sprayed with linex or rhino liner?

Hey Paul,

Thanks for the part number but why are you using 2 different strikers? Are your door handles not the same front and rear? I have that striker already on my new tub but thought that was for the newer defender door latch only. Maybe I am in luck and can reuse it.

Rhino Liner? I thought only Horsey did that I am trying to stay away from that, makes the truck look too modern. I like faded and scratched up paint.

I like doors that are less likely to dent, resonate, close with a satisfying thunk.

Front doors are done, still working on the second row, waiting on a few bits to button them up.

Are you saying the different strikers do this? Why not use the same for front and rear?

No, it was a reference to some sort of liner on the inside of the skins.

The hole spacing for the strikers is different front to back on my t-posts. Why you may ask, I don't know. Ask Nigel.

They can totally be banged out straight Ron. Just too damn fed up with them at this moment to be spending anymore time on them.

The work never ends! Just when I thought I was going to lay down the epoxy primer this weekend, ended up taking the hood apart to fix more rust problems hidden underneath the reinforcement frame. Also had to spot weld a few rivnuts that was loose/spinning in its hole.

My little helper, Halaela. She doesn't even know she is helping with her future truck. I turn my back for a few minutes and my welding helmet is "lightly powdered"

Great helper. My helpers wear the same boots!

They had M6 bolts in them with little rubber hats over them. They were used to stabilize the hood like on my RRC.

Finally got to the epoxy primer. Looks like I have to get more primer. One quart only got me this far. Don't know why my paint guy only suggested 1 quart for the whole truck.

This is for Alexandra. Sorry I tried to zip it and sent it to you but it got bounced back. Let me know if you have any specific shots you want. It was not that hard to remove the seat box. Hardest part for me was the hand brake cable.

I used the better part of a gallon for the primer. Inside and out, the entire enchilada.
