If this project takes three years, I'm out - my rally car needs to live in the garage. It's got a temporary home at my crew chief's place, but that's not a long term solution.

It took me less than that and my garage was about 1/8 that size!

You'll do fine. Glad to hear you chose to galvy the frame. You can buy me a beer to thank me next time I am in town

Engine cradle is complete!

While my design has merit, I probably need some outriggers on the front with wheels to help bear the load. It's easy to swing the rear end around, but the front wheels are carrying a great deal of load. After all, it's about 500lbs, give or take.

Rear quarter chassis has shipped from the EU via Paddock Spares. Not sure how to deal with the import duties since I usually order via LRDirect who handles (for an extra fee) the duty.

Updates without pictures:

Chassis is stripped down. Harnesses are out, brackets removed, axles yanked off. Ready to haul it out of the garage and on to the trailer where I'll sell it to one of the local guys for a little research and development.

After getting things stripped off, I found another (UGH) section of bad rot where the $*(!)*(#$! previous guy in the UK slapped some crap patch on it and it's trashed in a manner that's tough to fix. So, new chassis!

While the chassis is out, I'll disassemble the axles and completely rebuild them: repaint, redo all of the wheel bearings, rebuild the brakes, and get it all ready to go on the new chassis.

And the chassis is gone!

Now to start to redo the axles and get everything cleaned up. Debating about a rear disc conversion at the same time since I need to buy new brakes anyway as part of the whole refresh process.

Thoughts?

It's a kick in the balls I'm sure, but you'll get over it

If I wanted rear disk brakes I'd just swap in an axle from a disco. If you really want the sals, just stick with drums. You can always convert later if needed. I just don't feel like it's needed.

BTDT. The rear disc conversion is easy, once you get your hands on the hubs. Slapping a disco axle in seems like an odd choice. If you are rebuilding everything else, there's no economy in a used disco axle and I like the beef of the Sals R&P. My .02.

True, maybe the rear is easy/cheap enough to do the conversion.

Update:

- Trying to hash out details on a chassis from England. What a pain. Going with a Richards, 300tdi chassis with the additional steel that allows me to run either the metal or TD5/plastic tank setup. This will give me some future proofing. Just a 100GBP additional cost.

- Received and built my media blaster. Man this thing is cool! I need to line up some more media so I'm not sweeping as often!

- Built a little area to do my blasting. It keeps dust down significantly elsewhere in the garage, and allows me to open directly to the outside if the weather is decent.

Odd discovery. It looks like the rear Salisbury diff has some sort of filler plugs in them? Has anyone else seen this (check out the pictures).

Aren't those just "spot" welds to keep the axle tubes in place?

Flipped the axle over and did some more blasting today. Need to attack it with mineral spirits before I finish it up.

Dropped off some bits at a professional sandblaster as I'm going to be in/out of town a bunch over the next few weeks and don't have the cycles to handle it.

Chassis should be arriving around the end of May.

About to place a massive YRM and LR parts order from overseas.

Things are still moving!

Update!

Received a call from Richards in the UK - my chassis is done! So I paid for that, and it should be on my doorstep in probably 2-3 weeks depending on the boat. A few weeks back, I picked up lots of bits from Mark at Himilaya when I was down in Hilton Head, so I'll start rebuilding the axles. Nearly 100% of the underbody will be refreshed/replaced - all new stainless bolts w/ appropriate marine goop so they don't gall, new suspension, bushings, brakes, etc. The rolling chassis will be in tip-top shape.

Also had all of the axles and underbody suspension and steering bits cleaned up and painted. The finish from this stuff is excellent! PPG Industrial Oil Gloss Black paint.

Lastly, been working on installing a lift in my garage.

Oh, and I also bought a mk2 Escort to drive around in while I'm working on the Defender.
