Paint looks great! It's awesome that you are doing the entire rebuild yourself, the paint work is something i don't usually touch either on my cars. You doing this did though spark my interest of spraying my own cars if the time ever arises. Do you have a round about number on how much the paint costed to buy it?

Yeah I was really hesitant with the whole painting thing. I have never painted before. A lot of people here gave me really sound advice though. The actual spraying the paint part is really fun. The prep beforehand is tedious. I still have the tub and the rest of the truck to paint but I will gather my receipts tonight and give you an idea of cost.

Ok cool thanks, i have access to all the tools to spray, and a shop to do it in, so if i end up picking up an old series 3, i might contemplate taking it apart and painting it, if i could do it all myself. Also, i can't wait to see this truck when it is done!

So after a lot of back and forth and back and forth, I decided to bite the bullet and take everything off the truck, AGAIN, so I can properly paint all the panels and bulkhead. Even though no one can see it, just knowing I left it unpainted just kills me. I have worked this hard, might as well do it right. So off goes the 2 wing top and I also removed all the dash to get at the back of the bulkhead.

My little helper being anything but helpful.

Good call. If you're in this deep, doing it right is the way to go.

What's your plan for interior trim for the split doors?

No plans for the door trim. I will remove the trim on there now and run it bare like my Series III.

She loves being in the garage, constantly trying to get in my toolbox and generally causing mayhem. I wanted to make sure I have some pics of her helping me build her 110 for when she gets older.

So I ran into a little problem with one of the new doors I got. One had the keyhole already cut and one didn't. No big deal I thought. I will just trace out the keyhole and transfer it. I should have known it wouldn't line up, it is a Land Rover after all. The handle recess in one of the door it cut lower than the other one.

Here is a shot with both doors laying on top of each other mirror image. You can see the gray door underneath is way out of line:

I returned the gray door and decided just to fix the right hand door that I dropped a few weeks ago. Here you can see the corners that got crushed:

The frame itself was still straight so a few hits with the hammer on the door skins to straighten them out, epoxy with microballons to fill in the gap, a little bit of sanding:

The new door surprisingly did not have any drain holes in the bottom channel. Had to drill 2 holes:

I worked through a similar problem yesterday. I needed to cut the holes for the door locks in both 2nd row skins. My solution was to install the handles, tape the outside of the door in the vicinity of the holes to be cut and then tapped the outside with a rubber mallet. It left a faint impression of the lock tumbler. 10 seconds with the hole saw and it was done.

So I got around to re-keying the new door latches. After a little research on how to remove the lock cylinders and seeing how the lock mechanisms work, I don't think I will bother ever locking my doors again

Here is the old and new latches:

One little stick in the hole and the whole lock cylinder comes out:

Good advice. Cutting the keyhole wasn't the problem. It was the recess for the latch that didn't match up. One sat higher than the other.

I swear I am never going to paint another truck! This has got to be the most time consuming part of this restoration, taking every single bolt and screw off. This has been my mantra:

1. Take everything apart
2. Sand with 400 grit, rinse and let dry
3. Degrease with soap and water, rinse and let dry
4. Degrease again with DX330 wax/grease remover
5. Spray primer and let dry
6. Sand everything again with 400 grit, rinse and let dry
7. Degrease with soap and water, rinse and let dry
8. Degrease again with DX330 wax/grease remover
9. Spray the paint and let dry


Here are the wing tops and doors I primed and painted a few weeks ago:
