Joel,

Excellent refurb, how difficult is it to remove the Decker panel or more specifically hood, would you suggest 2 people and breaker bar for leverage on hinges...this looks to be a mandatory item on every RRC. in the real world access to 2 bolts and nuts securing Decker panel....difficult or terrible....

Thanks for the pics.

I didn't find access to the two bolts or the 11 screws terrible. Hood is heavy and the hinges are strong but I took it all apart solo. Will be using two people for reassembly.

Isn't it nice to take off the body panels and not see rust!

Looking good.

Speaking of that LR quarter panel, how hard was it to get off? I have a dent that I'd love to massage out, but access and the expectation of success to do the paintless dent repair is low!

This thread makes me happy. Also makes me want to tear my RRC down and do something similar. Glad to see a RRC getting the love it deserves.

Simple. Remove bumper, the big interior side panel, and the rear seat latch. 4 PH3 screws inside the truck, two 10mm nuts in the wheel arch, one 10mm nut/bolt at the bottom, 5 1/8th rivets to drill out next to the lower tailgate.

Ok. Thanks. That doesn't sound quite as bad as I was thinking. Is there any glued area to pry apart?

Yeah there will be dumdum and/or seam sealer involved in various spots, nothing complicated though.

Today placed new orders for stainless hardware, as well as for some hard to get parts from AB, RN, and Rimmer Bros.

Also confirmed with a buddy at LR that there are no open recalls on the truck. Which is weird because the fuel tank looks original... will be dropping it anyway to replace the vent/filler hoses so might as well scrub it and look for a date code.

Hum, you bring up a good point. Not sure if that recall was ever done on mine. Guessing the replacement tanks are available? Do think the recall info is stored only in US or LR corporate also has it. With going up and down the Alps my vent lines could also use some work.

LRNA has a database of VINs that have been serviced. Given that it was a US NHTSA issued bulletin (B156) makes you wonder about the ROW trucks. But I'd start with LRNA 1.800.637.6837.

I just had my '95 RRC serviced about 5 months ago, almost 10 years after the bulletin was issued, so they can still get the tanks and vent lines, though my dealer didn't replace all the lines at first.

Many thx for the information. The Rangie is a US vehicle that we brought over with us to Europe. The vent lines seemed clogged as at high elevation when I release the gas cap, air fills in. Kinda forgot about this campaign so glad Joel mentioned it and thx for the telephone number. Hopefully if necessary it can wait until we come back next May 2016. Or at least I get the vent lines fixed over here and the tank back home. Thx again.
