Do you have your windshield in yet? Wiper arms on? I forgot the arms, and now have to pull off the lower windshield bar to get the arms on...

Before you tighten up any of the cage bolts, get all of them finger tight. Only tighten them down after it is all put together. You're making great progress.

Thanks for the heads up Paul. The windshield is not on yet. I am going to dig out the rear panels and decide if I need to restore them or not. The plan is to put the windshield, rear panel and top back on first and adjust the rear tub for proper alignment. Then the doors, then the rest of the cage.

Putting the wingtops back on. I had already separated everything for paint. It is so much easier with everything apart.

Here I am putting the inner wheel-well in first. Then the wing top.

This is where I run into a clearance problem. The wingtop flange had to be cut to clear bracket B. This is the before pic. I had to cut an extra 1-2 inches to clear bracket B

Here with everything bolted back on. I just realized that rubber grommet is on the wrong part. It should be on the feet of the front hoop.

It took me a few hours but I was able to do both wingtops.

Haha that is purely just for looks! I really don't need snow covers in Florida. They came with the truck and I have been waiting 3 years to put them on . It's stupid, I know, but I am at the point where I just want to bolt anything and everything back on this truck. Not sure what I'm going to do with them yet.

Thanks. D-90 has been a great resource for me and this is my way of giving back. It may not help a lot of people, but I know when I was looking to buy and rebuild my Land Rover, I was searching all over the internet for something like this. It is a lot of work, not just the rebuild but to take pics, and then edit/select the perfect pic, and then post relevant information to the build. It makes it worth while when D-90 members respond

It's looking great Forrest. I am guilty of not giving feedback when I know it's appreciated, but it sometimes feels silly to just post "nice job", etc. without any other reason or feedback. We talked about adding a "like" type feature which would allow people to show interest and give praise but I forget if it's in the works or never took traction.

I also find myself getting worse and worse about taking pictures of projects and then taking the time to write about them. It does take time, and your efforts are appreciated.

Haha no worries Charles. I am not some egotistical maniac looking for verification of my social status but I do like it when members interact. I have gotten some very sound advice from people chiming in with their own personal experience.

Does anyone have this bracket that bolts to the chassis wing? Is SD the only source? I need the passenger side.
thanks

Reese,

I'll be honest, that bracket is so simple you can just bend one up in 5 minutes. You can try Stephen at SafariHP, that's where I got my cage, just not sure if he has any spare parts.

I am just going to fab one like you suggest. I need it tomorrow as mine is out of paint and the cage needs to go back on. Thanks for the response.

So after looking at the rear panels, I realized it's going to take me a couple more weeks of work before they are ready to go back on. I have to redo all the window tracks. Trick is finding all the screws that hold them in:

Once one side is out, there is enough room to remove the glass. Then drill out the rivets for the locking track on top of the windows. This has to be removed in order to fit the new tracks and glass.

I went ahead and removed the rear corner glass too. Will refit with new weatherstripping after paint.

Why not replace the window tracks et al in situ? Get the body put together and then worry about glass at your convenience. IMO

Because I am going to repaint the rear panel. In fact, I have to repaint the upper half of the truck. It looks too stupid with only the bottom half painted. Plus I am getting new door tops from Rocky Mountain and they will need to be painted anyways.

Rocky Mountain sells a very nice bit of window track kit which should be on their website, Wise Owl. Extruded rubber in a metal frame (as they call it?).

I asked Jeremy about a set and he says they don't make the tops for the middle doors.

The fronts are super nice. How can you paint them if you don't take them apart?

I like the raw look but obviously it would look odd if the second row didn't match.
