Put some pieces of the grille support together.

I used the stock pieces but had them powder coated and galvanized. Still need some fine tuning but good to put some things on.

The stock grille had it's bottom cut out. I bought a replacement here on D-90 and thought it would be an easy swap. But I have found that there have been different grille surrounds over the years and the better one doesn't match up with the top radiator support.

So I am just going to fix the original grille.

Finished up the grille surround.

Nothing fancy but should hold the plastic grille fine. It was some work but I am glad I ended up using the stock piece - it has a cut out for the hood lock and has the original Land Rover 110 sticker. I was feeling bad cutting up a good NAS one.

Did a little bit on the seatbox today. Temps in the garage were 85 so why not weld some aluminum.

Once again the YRM panels worked a treat. Lined up and fit great. I was happy with how the aluminum came out so tried to fit the NAS storage bin to the box and it doesn't quite fit. Just like the grille it is close but not right. Bummed as I got the boxes galvy'd a while ago and was excited to put them on soon without an issue.

I might just patch the original storage bin and get those galvy'd as well.

Eff it - I decided to patch the RH seat box. A little bit of work but happy with how it came out. Once it gets galvy'd stuff should be dialed.

Going to fix the LH aluminum this week and see how bad the original LH seatbox is.

One thing I SMH about is how some parts of the Rover just trap moisture and there fore rust. I understand the fold and spot welds are quick and easy but where I have seen them on the bulkhead and these seat boxes its like Rover wanted them to corrode even quicker.

The next patch is straight forward but the other corner makes this one look easy. I might just cut the old panel and make a new one.

Even the small stuff seems to take a ton of time.

Had to reconfigure the washer tank bracket from RHD to LHD. Then went to powder. Rattle canned the nut clips.

Then had to clean the plastic washer bottle best I could, used stainless M6 nuts on the bracket but regular steel ones where it attaches to the fender. Copper grease everything.

Then made a new mini harness to go from main to the washer pump. Attached the new tubing that has been hanging off the front of the bulkhead for months.

Fill with some Rain-X fluid I had in the bin and it everything works.

Next part is the finish the radiator / electric fan that I am dreading.
