Interesting read, I still like to solder my multi-connector terminals but I happen to use non-corrosive solder & finish crimp the strain-relief with silicon seal once it's all cooled.

Anyway.... thread hi-jack over, back to a great 110 build

Fenders, Wings

Spent some time taking apart the front wings or fenders. Cleaned all the road grime off of them and replaced all the rusted bolts. Painted the inside of the fender wells with 2 coats of POR-15 and put them back together....Even got new plastic rivets to replace all the broken ones that attach to the eyebrows....

Hitch

I figured before I put the tub back on I should get a hitch mounted. I bought one from Jack here on the forum and mounted it up this weekend. Since the gas tank is new and empty I removed it to make things easier. While it was off I sanded it down and coated it with POR-15 for some extra rust protection.

Body On! Well, sort of....

Got the underside of the tub all cleaned up and coated while it was off the frame.

Good news is I put the tub and roof on the frame, bad news is I still have a lot of rust to fix....

The sills and C posts were toast so I cut them out and got everything ready to put the new metal in. I have the new sills ready to go, waiting for the new C posts to arrive from YRM. After I get the new sills and C posts welded in I will coat everything with primer and POR-15 prior to it getting sprayed with Line-X

C posts and Sills

C posts and sills are in, put the old crusty bulkhead on to get measurements and make sure everything was lined up before welding it in. Coated the insides of the C posts for rust protection before welding them together as they come in two halves.

Fans, Trans Cooler, Heater, Oh My...

Bought 2 12" Spal puller fans and installed them on the radiator along with the trans cooler. Also spent way too much time tearing apart the crustified heater box. I took the old core out and ground off all the crust and rust then coated it inside and out with POR15. I will put the new core in when I am ready to mount the heater box. Right now I have it hooked up to the water pump so I can start the motor.

I also will enlarge the opening in the bulkhead for better heater efficiency, (add it to the list)

Did you make those sils or did you purchase sections?

Does anyone know what type of towing capacity might be expected with a truck like this? Assume you can get air springs for the rear to compensate for extra weight if towing.

Really nice looking build. Keep up the updates!

In the essence of time and pure laziness I purchased the sills and C-posts from YRM Metal. They were pretty reasonable, although the sills would be super easy to make, there really isn't much to them, just a piece of channel with holes drilled in it, you could even use square stock.

That's what I was thinking. Plus I could incorporate a slider into the Sil if I used heavy stock

I was going to order from YRM but couldn't find the Sil itself, just one with the b pillar. Which I will need anyways but shipping was ridiculous in that item. Besides I'm a ways away from needing it so I figured I'd just put off for a bit

Looking great though!

I would say no more than any other 110. It is not about a powerful engine pulling a load but way more about controlling and stopping that load. Also what the frame can handle as well, I literally bent the frame on one of my F150s from towing too much heavy stuff with it.

This is the link to the sill, the shipping wasn't bad on them and still way cheaper than anyone that had them here in the states.

I think the towing for a Disco II is 5500... but everyone knows it really can't do that in real life. The wheel base makes it difficult to tow anything that is tall. And the power is just not there. I have towed 2000lbs all around the Northwest, low slung, and the car does not like it on the hills.

Hmmm. The one I was lookin at had the b pillar already attached to it. That does look very reasonable

------ Follow up post added March 14th, 2016 09:20 PM ------

Ok it wasn't YRM. IT WAS this site.

Weekend progress...

Got all the fluids poured in, new plugs and the MAF installed this weekend. Started up the motor for the first time, sounds great but a tad loud with no exhaust! I was happy there were no leaks anywhere though!

Installed the middle row doors and rear sliding widows. I put the new Garrison Outfitters seals in which are supposed to eliminate rattling. Now I need to get the rest of the body put together so I can send her off to be Line-X'd...
