Are you planning on putting the spring spacers on the rear springs too? If so, the diameter is not the same...

Yeah I noticed that too. May have to glue them on. According to my reading on expedition exchange:

http://www.expeditionexchange.com/ome/indexsprings.php (scroll down)

I can fit it in all 4 corners, top and bottom. Not really sure if I will use them all. I don't want to drastically lift my truck. I may just use them as shims to get the truck level. Thanks Jim.

I used west marine 8200...my experience with sailing repairs has shown it permanent and water proof and UV resistant...and maybe you're right about 2 pieces...everything is fading into a jumbled haze of solvent induced foggy memory...

Haha! I cannot wait! Sweet sweet euphoria. Hope the trip will be better than modelers glue as used as a kid.

Thanks for tip on the glue. Was wondering what to use.

only caution is that it needs clamping so make sure you have some deeper throated c clamps or welding vise grips and so forth that reach to the edges of what ever area you're gluing...I got some cheap deep C clamps via harbor freight (of course)...another benefit of this adhesive method is the patch is automatically sealed against water ingress by placing one of the beads around the perimeter or edge of the area...

A little more progress this weekend. Got the windshield off the bulkhead and the bulkhead of the chassis. Got brake and clutch fluid all over the floor. That saran wrap under the reservoir cap does not work Mr. Lindsay Porter!

Apparently, my bulkhead was fitted with only one spacer on each side. Need to make a note of that. The bulkhead bolt was seized pretty good, even after soaking in PB Blaster for a month. Nothing a BF hammer didn't take care of. I left everything on the bulkhead so it weighs a ton. Will need to use a hoist to put it back on the new frame. Hardest part was labeling all the wires/cables/hoses.

Next on the list will be cracking the tranny from the engine.

Transmission out. Planning ahead to take advantage of this part of the rebuild, I purchased a completely new clutch set. After separating the tranny from the engine, the pressure plate looks pretty new. Maybe the previous owner just recently did the clutch. Either way, she will be getting a new set.

Fresh rover chrome.... drool

Have you decided if you are going to paint it while you have it apart? Are you planning to get some parts galvanized?

Yeah drool, I know what you mean. Cannot wait. I don't think I will paint it. My only concern is a mechanically solid truck. I will Por 15 as many parts as I can but no galvanization. I know I should but it's just not in the budget. I do not like a new-looking truck. I know, blasphemy but I just don't think a 110 should look new. Although mine is a bit far gone - with different color doors, bonnet, etc. It somehow tells a story...Let the uninitiated stare and comment, only real enthusiasts will see and understand what's under the panels.

Finally got to the engine today. And Stephen is killing me with his "guess what's in my container" posts! I see my frame and T-posts in there some where Stephen.

Ok so the frame is finally free, and still free to anyone who wants it. A bottle of Jack would be nice but not necessary. I need to get it out of the garage to make room for the new frame so the sooner the better. I can't remember who asked first, gotta go back over the post. If no one claims it here I will post it on the For Sale forum. If no one wants it I will cut it up so I can throw it away. Thanks

Truck progress lookin good...I am of the same philosophy in terms of Rover perfection...I don't mind too much what it looks like as long as all the systems are solid...I'd love to be able to afford having it cosmetically done right and painted but it is beyond my means...

Doug,
The West Marine 8200 is a one part polyurethane adhesive/sealant that is water proof and UV resist as well as paintable...plus a whole cartridge is only about $12 bucks...it is, for all intents and purposes, a permanent bond and it is a one part that doesn not need measuring or mixing...its meant for metal, wood or fiberglass and I thought the waterproof part was useful in the footwell. Takes 3 days to totally cure and requires clamping but it works great. Not good for chassis kind of stuff I guess but great for panel bonding.

Sounds like a branded version of 3m5200- same stuff. They (3m) actually make a quick/fast cure version which is what I use.

So after 3 months of waiting, Stephen at Safari Rovers gets this in his backyard. With a little help from some highschool kids we get all offloaded. He lets me pick the frame I want and even let me use his trailer to haul it back to my place. Stephen, being the guy that he is, keeps the one that was damaged during shipping for himself. Old frame going to Marc Ingham.

More stuff done. Spring angle on the front axle perch is a bit scary.

Yeah, they always look like that before the engine goes in - keep up the good work!
