No modification to the headers as they are stock to me, as they came with the truck when I got it.

Brake fluid = Castrol GT LMA (prob only from AB, not available anywhere else I've found).
Power Steering = ATF (auto tranny fluid, type IV I believe).

I was in your shoes not too long ago. Looks like you are making great progress. I ended up cutting out all the cancer in my bulkhead with a sawzall and made my own footwells. Back then YRM would not ship to the US and RN did not have replacement panels. I would just buy from RN and be done with it. It only cost me $50 to make mine but they are no where as nice as the ones you can get now.

To install the footwells I made mine overlap the original bulkhead and I just glued them in with panel glue I got from home depot, as suggested by some members here, and bolted all along the edges. It is a very strong bond and I am not concerned. Welding would be better though.

While you have the engine and tranny out, why not redo the clutch?

Any recommendation on aligning the body? Meaning the t-posts, rear tub and bulkhead.

When I did mine nothing lined up at all until the roof went on. Bolt everything together reasonably loosely and then it'll pull together when the roof goes on. Having a little slack means you can adjust alignments, door gaps etc.

Thank you that is what I thought I was going to have to do. Going to install the front fenders on sat. Then start the wiring.

Does anyone know if I can buy a center cubby for an auto trans? If so do you have a recommendation.

Thanks

I used the "string method". I'll try and find a link for you.

I would NOT use synthetic fluid in a rover auto. It can clean out too much stuff and gum up the works. Get the cheap stuff.
