How did this turn into Kang's Big Rivet Thing Story?

It's all good. We all learn from these discussions, even though it isn't as organized as possible (and harder to find - we need to get serious about consolidating nuggets to a wiki!)

I'm pretty sure this is why Bill recommended a wood chisel to me. It's already sharp with a decent angle. Worked like a charm for me. It buggers up the chisel and although I can always resharpen, but likely will just chuck when done since it was cheap and bought for this purpose.

But yeah Kang has something else there. Drill baby drill.

So back to my truck, I have had a busy non-rover schedule so haven't had time to work on it (although I did pick up Pedro's blasting cabinet and plan on getting a decent compressor off craigslist tonight). Last night I got an hour and pulled the windshield, but ran into trouble with the double nuts holding the wipers on. I need to find some skinny wrench to hold the back nut so I can undo the outer nut. It appears to be somewhere between 8 and 9 mm so I guess 11/32.

Destroy the compression nuts and throw away those wiper arms. There are some WAY better solutions that retain the original look.

Oh those look to be stainless with zero rust on them and came right off. I'm talking about the two studs that hold the wiper motor to the frame - they have double nuts on them.

The wiper arms themselves could use blasting/painting but are fine where they mount. I'll get some pictures up tonight.

But I am interested in hearing what the better options are. I assume some sort of adapter to allow fitting the regular style push on arms like a defender has?

This is impressive. You are the man... You are not wasting any time.

Please remind me to give you a battery monitor I have.

The studs have (I think) Whitworth nuts. They can be replaced with (I think) 8-32 as can the studs with threaded stainless rod. In any case don't worry too much about saving them.
Ike sells the rubber gaskets, but not the shaft seal that is between the domed washers. That's just a standard issue 1/4 x 1/2 inch rubber washer. The other thing you can't get is the pot metal frame adapter. There should be rubber gaskets on both the inside and outside on these, which you have to make yourself from sheet rubber.

Finally getting caught up on some threads and while I do have plenty of room at my place I like to reserve it for running vehicles that I can drive!

Truck is looking good Galpin. If I can get some free time over the weekend I will swing by with the boy to have a closer look and lend a hand if needed

Aah. The answer I was looking for was "they are studs, just undo them and not the lock nuts"

He's a guy who used to come wheeling with us. Nice guy, but I don't think we'll ever see him on the trails again.

Anyhoo, I got a little time over the last few days to pull the windshield and strip it down.

Charles, I'm beginning to think that you should restore this truck to drivability and do your hybridizing to a less rare example of the breed.

I'm pretty sure I'm not getting a pass to do another truck anytime soon. I tell you what - you convince Donna to sell the LR4 and and her BMW and get a Tesla model S (in theory it seats 7), and I'll keep this stock and convert something else

That's what he's doing... but without emissions.

I knew that was coming . We can put the boy on that task. I should get some time to work on it Saturday AM and would like to see if I can start it.

You know the boy is only good at moving stuff around, not putting anything away! Plus he is a little short for that task. I am going for a bike ride Sat AM but will see if you are still at when I am done and will try to swing by
