Don, that is the size of those 4 bolts on the cross member? Do you know size and pitch?

I ended up using M12x1.75 - Grade 10.9 - 100mm in length.

I had bigger bolts (m14) but was really tight and I figured 4 m12 bolts (and the 2 underneath) would be plenty strong.

Secondly. Make sure you paint those bolt heads and anti seize the threads. Those hardened steel Alllen bolts rust real fast when exposed to elements. They don't have any protective coating.

Good to hear you a still popping in. It's been a while and with the snow/weather we've been hunkered down. Hope things are well.

Agree on the painting of those allen bolts. Do you just use a paint pen? Or maybe I'll just pull them and hit them with some engine or caliper paint I have sitting around.

Just a quick shot out of a spray can should do.

I just remember using them on my drive flange and they were brown within a Week, and it hadn't even rained I don't think

I eventually replaced with zinc plated hex bolts and they didn't rust at all.

That is the crappy thing about them. I'll pull and shoot with some paint I have laying around. I do love how the allen heads look wish there was a plated 12.9 version of them.

Started work on the heater box. With the price of LHD boxes I am using MikeCT's build and convert a RHD box. Got a new blower with LHD inlet from Rovers North and getting a ProLine heater core from them as well.

Stitched up one side - I am not going to convert this back to RHD so just going to weld where I see can help.

Inlet that was taken out, flattened and reversed then popped rivet and welded back on.

Sorry for the one pic post my app keeps crashing when I try to do more than one per post.

Just about done with the heater box RHD - LHD conversion. Pretty much had to take every panel apart and "flip" it over. Going to drop off the pieces to powder tomorrow.

This panel was a bear to swap over. Had to get the folds to line up right - used the c-clamps to hold to check fit.

That looks like a lot of work, but it looks like great progress.

Thanks

I got a little carried away with TIG welding the seams up and that took a while otherwise it wasn't too crazy work wise. If I had access to a good sheet metal break it would have been a bunch easier.

Once done I will be $400 in parts (new heater core & blower motor). I am guessing powder to be $75-100 for all the pieces. A new LHD one seems to retail at close to $900 and will have the Rover build and paint quality.

So I ordered that leather cover from the guy on Ebay UK that Uncle Doug told about in the bulkhead thread. The first cover was just a RHD cover "flipped". The second cover was a RHD normal cover. But I had the original so had a local auto upholstery guy cut out a patch and swap the panel where it was cut out for the RHD steering wheel. He then installed the cover.

It came out pretty good - actually considering it was a rat bastard of a RHD lower dash I am more than happy with it. Lots of fabrication, and about $300 for the powder, cover, and upholstery install but looks good.
