Understood, sometimes time / money get in the way.

Around here it would cost between 400 and 500 to get it dipped and about 1 week, not sure about where you live.

Understood on time and money, but at least take the time to wire wheel (get a wire wheel for a 4.5in angle grinder) and rust convert, prime and paint the bad areas and then spray the inside with waxyoil or if you are totally broke, the homemade stuff (toilet bowl wax rings, chain saw bar oil and turpintine I think is how they do it).

Ron, absolutely on the de-rust routine...that has been what I've been doing for the last few days...I'll see if I can find the homemade waxoyl recipe online somewhere...what do people use to spray that stuff? needs a circular pattern spray I would guess...

Get as much waxoyl inside the frame as you can. That is where the 3M spray cans come into use well. Of course this can always be done at a later date.

An old style fire extingusher works for the home made waxoyl.

here you go! I have heard of people using toilet bowl rings for wax too. Probably $10-20 worth of stuff to make a large batch.

A little progress...bulkhead cleaned up, patched and painted a flat black since I'm still undecided on whether I will go through the effort of a new exterior paint color or not...am going to try to install 200Tdi today...more to come...

Got the 200Tdi in...although quite a wrestling match, I can confirm that a 200Tdi is a straight bolt in proposition into a 1983 110 that came stock with a 4 cylinder petrol 2.25L engine and LT77 transmission.

Protip, while you got everything apart, take the shift lever off and rotate it to the LHD position. Also, REPLACE THOSE SHOCK TOWERS. They look unsafe due to rust.

Defender with all the bits is a direct drop in. 10 to 12 hours labour.

Disco requires modifications. Time depends on how you choose to do the mods. If LHD, Disco will foul steering.

OK...I guess as of today's efforts, I can officially say that this Land Rover is now a LHD 200Tdi 110...ya-hoo!

final before dropping body on chassis

just one more shot prior to dropping the body back on and beginning to run new fuel and hydraulic lines...
pushing it back up the driveway was interesting to say the least...new fuel tank...

Man George wish I was at that stage. I should be getting the new frame soon. Just dropped a fortune on a completely new set of OME springs and shocks yesterday from the AB sale. Contemplating a new gas tank too. Mine is still relatively solid but it is 26 years old. Might as well change it out. Where did you get yours from and for how much? Trevor at RovahFarm has one for $250. Most likely be getting it there since I am getting a whole bunch of other stuff from him. Interested in seeing how you do your brake and fuel line. I have no idea where to even start.

One of the first things I did after the body was off was take the fuel tank and the radiator and intercooler to be tested...there was a small leak in the fuel tank, the radiator needed to be recored and intercooler was ok...so, I also bought a new tank at RovahFarm along with other essentials from Rovers North, Rovers Down South, Safari and AB...as for bending pipe...I'm letting Glenn at therovershop do it...I know my limits
