Red face 1985 90 200tdi threepointohhhh

I'm starting a fresh thread and tearing my 90 back down. ( Actually done already) It almost feels like a new build.
Trying to do everything I didn't do right the first time, insert "I told you so" here

I started to just do a frame swap for a newer 1997 chassis, figured I should paint it, redo the rusty bulkhead, new steering box, etc. newer style dash and vents. Proper under tub supports for the NAS SW roll bar. Etc.

Of course plans change so I decided to get a newer tub. Then a guest to the shop convinced me to get the 97 frame galvied. Then the bulkhead, after repair panels were installed and vents were cut out. Went back to Nicolas Galvanizer in NJ city to get the bulkhead done, great guys, didn't like the way it came out the first time, so back in acid. Acid stripped it clean, again. Second time was a charm looks very nice.
They also did the frame about a month ago.
One thing I noticed was that my 1985 bulkhead had the bigger hole for the heater already cut.
It was similar to a 1993 NAS 110 with A/C so that may be why.

Final color. It's semi gloss grey, it's an industrial color code. So far I've seen it on prison bars(on tv)
Ships and the stair rails at my gym. I am the only one at work that seems to like it.
