My sand blaster blasts huge pieces of bridges and other marine-environment parts, and what they do is blast, galv, re-blast, paint with zinc-rich epoxy primer, then top coat for final finish. That is supposedly a particular spec of finish for these kinds of parts.

I don't think so, but Mike can chime in. I know they do the zinc rich primer deal, but I have not seen them paint galvy other than the frames (which if you look at the posts of the blueboy 109 with a V8 shows some peeling on the underside).

I can believe this. If you have ever seen or felt freshly sand blasted metal it's the ultimate surface for paint to stick to.

Very true. Paint peeling off galvy is purely a cosmetic issue.

I picked up roll bar/cage parts from sandblasting yesterday, heading to powdercoat at the moment.

There has never been, and never will be, any gold paint on this engine (or anywhere on the truck for that matter). The gold colored parts have been sandblasted and plated in yellow cadmium which is more corrosion resistant than yellow zinc or plain zinc.

Looks Great! What does the final bill look like? A ball park would be helpful. If I do not sell my SW, this is what I want to do to it but in Zambezi Silver or Bonatti Grey.

The bill? You mean total? I don't really know, but I can say I have about 400 hours in it so far.

Wow, that looks awesome.

So just to be clear, did you buy it, or are you doing all of this for a friend of a friend still? I'd love to know what it cost in both labor hours and materials/parts/painting etc. too!

It belongs to a friend of a friend. As far as what its cost, well, I don't even know. I'll wait till it is done before I ask. I am trying to get it done by MAR.

What make of headers are those?
Do you anticipate any fitment issues come time to install the steering column?

Even in the pic with the red blanket covering the motor?
The stock exhaust manifolds don't look like that on my '97 Defenders...

Got the modified Equipe gas tank skid (helps to have buddies who are machinists) mounted today along with the stock rear bumper. Also started getting the first parts back from powdercoating today, stuff looks pretty good.
