You mean the easy shift!!!! hehehe....sorry I missed you too.

We had to scramble and shut down all open flames/heaters when Ed and Clint were "holding" the gas can for Charles to syphon...brilliant move was made when "I thought you were holding the tank" came into it - with Charles wearing about a gallon of high octane

It stunk so bad for so long we were all getting headaches! Good times....

Classic...nothing like some close-spontaneous-combustion-calls to add some excitement into the day.

Yes, it was the easy shift. But in my defense I was supposed to be there the entire day, but the parents decided to spring on us - at last minute - that they were coming into town to visit. Totally bummed...

Well, to be fair I offered to help but need some advanced notice to make it work given it's a 2-3 hour drive there. I am guessing most are in this boat. I am a lot closer and most only came for a half day. I think Jeff was the only one there all day and besides living 20 minutes away wanted the engine so he was kind of obligated!

Oy, that doesn't sound good. Best wishes with that.

I have your Y-pipe and chain - let me know if you are coming to HH and I'll bring.

It still stinks in there! And to be clear we were pouring into a can, not siphoning. It might have been less messy if we siphoned, but I didn't feel like the taste of gas at the time (although in retrospect it would might been better). Anyway, I didn't catch on fire so it's all good

Oh, and thanks for the full tank of gas Bill! Other than Ed thinking I deserved some myself, my D90 and series thank you. And I wouldn't have known my daughter had lost my gas cap unless I had gone to put gas it in!

Dude at least you came! You could have told me you were waiting on the cable guy or something equally lame. LOL, still love you Pedro.

Anyhoo, back to galvy

I wrote up my thoughts on the process over in Ed's build:

http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...&postcount=243

They bent a few of the tub strips, and the radiator bulkhead warped a little which was surprising, but both easily remedied. Otherwise I am very happy with the results, despite needing to do a lit of final cleanup of the items. Nothing got lost which is amazing given how small some of the parts were.

As usual I have lots more pictures in my gallery, but here are some teasers

I am waiting on some parts to repair the bulkhead and doors with, but hopefully it won't be too long before they arrive. The only bummer is I really need to bulkhead to start fussing with the new frame, so I might temporarily weld the one foot that fell off back on, and do all the fitting with it, but I still need the new outriggers as well, so I guess can't start just yet. I will probably clean up galvy, and/or strip paint off the body panels until then.

You forgot to galvanize the compressor.

Dude... this is Rover Porn at its best.

Great job.

Except I now have to think of at least one other thing out of the thousands of things I can't remember to buy in order to get free shipping via amazon prime

I wonder if that hose line on the siphon is actually rated for gasoline? I don't see it specified anywhere.

Apologies as I am late to the thread and seem to have missed it. In your galvy pic I see a coil sprung chasis (presumably the RRC?), but it has a traditional Series/Defender rear crossmember. Did I miss something?

Not sure who's son is in the video but it is quite funny watching him. So was the leak missing the bucket and marking the floor.

That would be my Defender's chassis

I'm so confused. This project puts my frankenstein to shame.

You need your own TV show: Keeping up with the Galpins.

It's not that complicated. Ed and I did a combined galvy run. Half the stuff (weight wise) was his, and the other half mine.
