Yeah I gotta look into this. I have read about this before. Gotta research what type of glass I need.
Oh man. Sorry about that. I think you're looking for laminated glass.

Trust me its flat glass. The easiest one there is to cut and install. The guys at your local shop will be wanting to do it cause there is nothing to it.

It isn't laminated? Yikes That's an easy way to head straight into some serious lacerations

Rear Window Panel Rebuild

Sooooo, after that disaster, let's move on to some I didn't break. I replaced the rear felt window tracks with Rocky Moutain's window track kit.

Window Track Replacement Kit RMG9517K

It was very easy to do. It comes with six tracks. They are aluminum shell with rubber tracks so no more annoying felt to replace.

You will have to trim the bottom track to fit inside the galvanized drip tray of the rear panel. The top track requires no trimming. The two side tracks are cut to fit from a single track.

The bottom track goes in first, then the glass, then the top track, then just push everything into the panel. The two side pieces can be fit at anytime.

The kit comes with drill bits and ss screws. After a lot of trial fitting to make sure everything is the right length, I just use silicone to glue everything in place.

Also picked up 4 new lock mechanisms, 2 short and 2 long. They are not the same length.

Clamshell

So the plan 3 years ago when I started this project was to put on a clamshell for the 110. I sourced the Clamshell from an LRX listing. It had all the vital hinge parts that is so commonly missing. Here's the breakdown:

ID:	66058

Everything was going as planned until I realized that the internal SD cage interfered with the clamshell hinge:

I tried and cursed myself (for not having the foresight about the internal SD cage interfering) for weeks to come up with a way to hinge the clamshell to the top. In the end, the cleanest, and least holes drilled, was a heavy duty SS piano hinge across the outside like this. I ended up drilling out the rivets in the hardtop gutter and reusing those holes so that I didn't have to drill any more unnecessary holes. The clamshell ended up with 4 holes:

Since the original internal hinge has the bracket for the stays to hold up the clamshell, I had to fabricate 2 new brackets as I was no longer able to use the original internal ones:

Since I just happen to have 2 new gas struts laying around, I measured and attached them. Luckily they are just the right length and strength and it makes opening the clamshell a breeze. My wife prefers the old school stays and they are easy to put back on if needed:

Tailgate Conversion: Drop-down to Side-opening

As part of the clamshell package I got off LRX, it also came with a drop down tailgate. I have a drop down on my Series III and, although it is awesome to sit on, it is a PITA to get into the rear space. I decided to convert it to side opening.

I borrowed a new tailgate from Safari HP and traced out the location of the holes for the door latch:

ID:	66419

Traced it onto my door and cut it out with a hole saw (which I really hate). Cleaned it up for final fitting with hand files:

The most difficult part of this project is making sure the tailgate is lined up and spaced correctly so I could drill the side door hinge holes. Not because it is hard to do, it's just heavy and cannot just "sit" on the rear tub, you have to "float" it to get the spacing right. I ended up using the drop down hinges to hold the tailgate in the correct spot to mark the holes for the door hinges:

A few holes drilled and the tailgate now swings out. Unfortunately, my holes did not line up with the pre-drilled holes already there for the hinges brackets:

Thanks Barry

So the last part is to drill the holes in the tub to take the anti-burst latches. Again I could not reuse the holes already present for the regular full rear door. The tailgate latch sits a little lower.

I also included a scan of the template to cut out the rear handle holes since people are PMing me for the template. I included a ruler for scale. The template edges just lines up against the inside of the tailgate. The square hole is to clear the soft top rope cleats/tiedown on my tailgate. These are common on older/series tailgates. Yours may not have them. Just look at the pictures above for reference.

Winch Bumper

I finally got all the window glass back in and got all the locks working properly. Now I can safely move the truck back outside. Time to put the winch bumper back on:

Hey thanks. The sliders came with the truck when I imported it. They are galvanized and a good solid fit. I think they are from a company called Scorpion Racing. I don't think they are around anymore.

Thanks Ron, not sure I want to keep the bumper. It came with a Warn winch and is mounted on an Exmod bumper with the center tow pin. I am looking for alternatives.

Brownchurch Heavy Duty Roof Rack

I have a very specific vision of what my 110 will look like. I fell in love when I saw a picture of a 110 with a Brownchurch roof rack on it back in the early 90's. Not just any Brownchurch but the heavy duty one with the double-strut legs and angle bracings. Also had to make sure it cleared my SD cage in the front.

It took a few years but I finally found one in the US, unfortunately it was literally at the farthest point from me in the continental US, the Northwest. It took a few months but I found a shipper on Uship and finally got it to me:

New bumper

OK, I got a new project so it's been a few months since I updated this build thread. But here are 2 new additions.

I got a prototype Safari Equip bumper from Stephen at Safari HP. This is the one he was going to put into production but never did. Supposedly one of a kind as they where going to change a few things around based on trials with this prototype.

So I have been driving this around for the last few months. My original muffler has fallen off on the highway somewhere The tired original 3.5 V8 + LT95 + Fairey OD is screaming at me going 55mph but other than that I love this thing. Next up will be a 3.9 rebuild and an R380.
