Crud! Wish I would have explored this option earlier as the frame is at the blasters shop now and was probably done today or may be tomorrow.

The Frame Survived!

Got the frame back and I am very surprised how well it looks after being blasted! There are only a few places that will need repair. I was expecting swiss cheese everywhere and was pleasantly surprised to see I wont have to spend $$$ on a new one or a ton of hours on this one.

Worst spot was the rear crossmember for the rear passenger footwell which is a removable piece.

Cleanest spot was under the manual steering box after I removed it....

4 Days Off...

I was able to make decent progress this weekend over the New Year's Holiday. Spent four days in the garage....Patched up the frame where it needed work, got the new engine mounts on, put two coats of POR 15 on the frame except for the very front end where I still need to do some work and fabricate brackets for my bumper.

Took apart the rear end and got it all cleaned up. Have all the parts to convert to rear discs, just need to find them!

I also need to decide if I want to splurge on the ARB locker or get a Detroit...I have already purchased heavy duty rear axle shafts as I am going from 55hp to 325hp...

New Bushings and stuff...

Wow, spent about 3 hours on what I thought would be a half hour job of putting new poly bushings in the link arms to the rear axle. The old rubber bushings at the rear axle and thin steel sleeve were pretty much welded in over the last 30 years! Had to drill out the old rubber bushings and then chisel/hammer out the metal sleeves.

Finally got them out and the new poly ones in with lithium grease. Hopefully the other 300 or so bushings in the kit don't go like these two! The new springs and shocks only took about 30 minutes to install, go figure.

Ls3 lc9

Started getting the LC9 ready to go. Even though it has only 30k on it I am putting on a new belt, tensioner, idler pulley, plugs etc...

Took the A/C compressor and mounting bracket off. Removed the manifolds (they will be good paperweights). Removed the intake for the install and to rotate it 180 degrees. Will get the 6L80 and Disco 1 LT230 bolted up this weekend hopefully.

Moving Along

This weekend I found a Trans and Transfer Case from a wrecking yard in Phoenix. 6L80 Trans came out of a 2012 4x4 Silverado with 29,000 miles and the case is from a 97 Disco with a 1.2 ratio. Got them home and started getting them ready. Pulled the pan from the trans to check the fluid and change the filter and fluid. Bolted up Nick's shiny adapter and them did some work on the case.

The speedo cable attachment and the hand brake cable were different along with some of the mounting holes for the hand brake. To make things easier I decided to swap out the housing from my 1.6 case. Except for cleaning everything up to get a good seal this was not too bad of a job.

Ahh, I see that the 6L80E is a two OD trans, with that 1.2 transfer case and 3.54's that's an awesome gear setup! I'm not a huge auto fan but this looks like it will be a nice build!

Brakes

Had a little time left this weekend to start working on the rear brakes. Going from my crusty drums to discs in the rear using Disco 1 rear calipers. Swapping to vented discs and new calipers in the front. Also bought a new brake line kit and 2" extended braided lines for the front two calipers and valve on the rear diff.

All the parts I purchased new from LR Direct. They have great prices, shipping across the pond is not cheap but still beats any US prices by a lot!

Did you do the later style sals disc brake conversion? or did you get early 110 front hubs and do the conversion that way? I believe the latter one makes the rear track 23mm narrower than the front.

Oh yes, good call, thanks for the reminder! I hope to get the motor, trans and T-case all installed into the frame this coming weekend.

Yes, it should cruise along nicely on the freeway at low RPM's. Thanks

This stuff is nasty!

So have been trying to remove the insulation from the interior of the truck so I can get it sprayed with Line-X....

I have tried sandblasting, grinding, adhesive remover etc....

Nothing works that well. Goo-Gone does ok after numerous applications and letting it soak overnight then scraping, scraping, scraping, makes a nasty mess though!

Anyone have a better method of removing this glued on insulation? The seat boxes are covered, trans tunnel, rear cargo area, etc..

Been trying to enlist my wife to help with this part but she's not having it!
