I know you've got a while before you have to worry about this, but it looks like a Disco 200 so make sure you fab up your steering shaft before you put the left wing on, helluva lot easier.

I envy you, wish I had the time to do ground-ups.....nowadays it hard to find time just to rotate the tires....

So today I removed the old motor mounts and welded up the new ones for the 200 tdi on the NAs frame. Removed everything from the frame and assembled everything for sand blasting. The truck is loaded up with the frame and suspension ready to first thing in the morning. Tomorrow dropping everything off and then starting the break down of the bulk head, gonna try and get the tub, flooring and channels to the rhino liner by the end of the week.

Here are some pics of the old frame and where its at on the break down and some pics of the rot. The green tub is the 97 NAS, I have it just sitting on the frame to to some work on it.

Lazy day, went to my upholster to drop off my lower and upper dash to get worked on. I also met with my paint guy to nail down the paint code to get the material ordered. Came home and broke down the bulk head, still need to power wash and dynamat before taking it to paint.

You're going to dynamat before painting? Interesting.

Paint has a cure time of 6-8 weeks after spraying, even longer this time of year, before you should rhino line or dynamat. Other wise the paint will peel. Lay it first and paint over and you seal everything and you don't have to worry about it peeling, or water damage. I am going to dynamat the whole tub before rhino lining as well.

I do not recommend dynamat for a defender. It's expensive and does almost nothing for the noise in a defender.

Maybe others have better experiences with it than I do.

I've used in several applications in old jeeps and first gen broncos. If done properly it makes a world of difference in the decibel level. It is expensive, and worth every penny!

I did not use dynamat because of the cost but the roofing material from lowe's instead. Much cheaper and is basically the same thing as dynamat. I for sure think the truck is quieter with it. How much I have no idea but even my wife noticed it.

Ok, so things have slowed down now. Waiting on chassis to come back and body from paint. This weekend will probably be balls to the wall! So far I dynamated both sides of the bulkhead, the floor panels. Chanels, doors and the bottom of the tub. When I pick it up from paint it will be going straight to get rhino lined, inside and the under body. The rear end is ready for a coat of Por 15, and the front housing will be built hopefully tomorrow. Got my 300tdi intake and exhaust manifolds in today!!!! Next week if all goes well, Ill be overhauling the motor, detailing it and getting a fresh coat of Por15. I will also be workin on my front exo cage!!!

Funny how I have to fabricate my own panels for my body guy. The rear quarters are shot so I fabed up a new set, along with new side panels for the hard top. I think I went a little over kill but I used .080 thick and dynamated as well. This sucker is going to be solid!

Today was a funny day, first I knocked out my wing tops. I still need to cut out the vent holes, and powder coat them satin black. Love the idea of them but I hate the checker plate. I finished breaking down the front end pressure washing and getting ready for Por 15 this weekend. While breaking down my front wing the bondo broke off. Man this guy put a half inch of bondo on the whole front fender. Glad I am replacing all the front body panels along with doors. Here are a few more pics.
