I don't appreciate getting PM's from people demanding information from me, especially information I've already shared in this thread. If you're kind and appreciative I don't mind helping, but if you're not I feel less inclined to do so. Myself and others have already shared enough information in this thread for anyone to be able to do something similar as I am. If you want to partake a similar project then make it your own. Every project should be unique. That's what makes it beautiful. Think of yourself as an artist.

I agree, you've been more than generous to share the process with us. Sometimes people don't understand Internet protocol. I appreciate your thread and I'm not even going to build something like this.

I just noticed the VIN stamp is still readable. That's pretty cool.

Because people asked, here are the dimensions for the factory BMW Defender engine mounts. They will work for the following engines: M50, M52, M54, S50, S52, and S54. Use the bolt holes on your engine for making the mounting holes for proper alignment. The shorter one is the left hand and the longer one is the right hand.

Oops, the dimensions on the LH mount don't add up. The left side is 50mm in, not 55mm. In any case, this should get you started.

Thanks guys. You still have time to catch up Charles. I haven't started putting it back together yet, but I got some more parts.

The front axle is rusty and has big holes in the bump stop part, so instead of patching it I just decided to get another one. I found one nearby. It's really nice.



And these came today. All new bushings and ball joints. The bushings were supplied by Britpart and Allmakes but they're the genuine oem (G on the end of the part #'s). I made sure I got the oem Lemförder ball joints. I also got brand new AP brake calipers. And new rear brake discs from Beck/Arnley, which are made by Fremax in Brazil. They were about half the price on Amazon vs. the Fremax branded ones at Napa. And all new bolts for the chassis. All underneath will be like a new Defender.

What are you doing with your old callipers? I need to replace mine, but having a set to rebuild wouldn't be bad.

I'll sell them. How's $100 sound for all 4? I think they'll fit in a medium flat rate box, so postage would be $11.30.

I got a question from someone about sourcing a bolt kit for the chassis. I just got the bolts, nuts, and washers from my local hardware store that has a good selection of fasteners. They cost about $300. I used the NAS parts catalog to make a list of what I needed. To find the specifications I looked them up in this catalog and by plugging the part number into a Google search or on a supplier website such as britcar.co.uk or lrdirect.com. And of course by studying the old ones, but most are broken, heavily pitted, or rusted together. Search for the nuts and washers online to find a picture of them so you know what you're looking for. Such as regular, large/oversized (fender), or spring (lock). It was quite tedious. It's also pretty odd Land Rover decided to use a mixture of metric and SAE (UNF) bolts. Most are metric though. The only SAE ones are for the propshafts, trailing arm mounts, and rear axle top link/a-frame. Also the bolts for the steering box, but since I'm using the P38 box it calls for metric. LR has since went to metric (torx) for the door hinge screws as well (I still need to order those, but I'll check the condition of my hinges first when I take the old doors off to see if I need those as well). I suppose someone may offer a bolt kit, but it's not going to be the same for different Defenders such as RoW or NAS, and it may still not include every bit you need or maybe it gives you more than you need. If you buy them individually from a local store you can probably return what you don't end up using. And remember not to buy stainless steel bolts due to potential strength and galvanic corrosion issues.

Are you not using mcmaster.com? Hardware store prices for fasteners are crazy. For your nice finish body bolts in stainless, I think Nakatanenga's kit is by far the best. Otherwise, you just need to get good at speccing and ordering fasteners in quantities from McMaster-Carr or Fastenal. There aren't that many sizes really, a whole bunch of M8x25 and M6x20 and the a smattering of longer M10s and a few big long M12s back on the rear crossmember (that's admittedly oversimplifying it, but it's mainly just M6, M8, M10, and a few M12's in a variety of lengths). You're going to try to be comprehensive about it, but until you have extra bolts sitting around, you just have to get accustomed to the fact that some days your work will stop while you drive down to Fastenal or place another McMaster order

I've ordered from McMaster before and I ended up with a bunch of extra bolts I've never used. Parkrose Hardware actually has pretty good prices. I haven't ordered from Fastenal before. I'm looking up bolts on there now and a lot aren't in stock, but it looks like they'd be here in a couple days, which is fine. So far the prices look comparable. For the propshaft bolts, I got flanged grade 8 3/8 x 1 1/4 (they didn't have 1 1/8 length and it looks like McMaster and Fastenal don't either) oil & phosphate finish and they were 94 cents each. They're $1.11 each at Fastenal. Although they also have a zinc finish for 50 cents. I guess I'll add a bunch to my cart and see how it comes out.

------ Follow up post added August 30th, 2015 12:19 AM ------

When I add items in my cart at Fastenal online it doesn't give me the option of picking it up in the store at the checkout page. Do I have to go into the store to put the order in and do they charge shipping to the store for not-in-stock items?

I found a thread talking about Fastenal. It sounds complicated. The hardware store is nice because there's no minimum quantity to buy. It's all self-serve loose items in bins. And the guys are always so nice and helpful. That's worth something to me.
