That will be one tasty truck when it's done. Mine isn't going to be half as tidy as that, I just don't have the time, galv chassis & bulkhead and well used cleaned up bits is the sort of finish I'll end up with.
But yours....better than new

Looking good. Why did you decide to use one piece doors?

Thanks, I used those doors because they have been lying around my shop for 4 years now and I galv. the frames and re skined them. It was cheaper then buying entire new doors and tops. I can tell you that they are a really nice fit and much more solid then the half doors on my d-90. Plus I will be putting a Safari Roof on the truck so the rool down door will be nice. The window is quite big.

Yep with the glass rolled down it's almost the same as taking the door top off

I just got my coiler back from Matt at Overland Enginnering with my power steering conversion and Delco alternator. PS is sweet when you've gone without it. dual ARBs and Longtracks axles/CVs up front are next. I'll edit in some pics later.

Some pics in process.

Hi Randy, I am really impressed by the quality of your rebuilds, nice job! On the coil series conversion have you hade to fabricate or buy loads of custom parts? I am planning a rebuild of a series 2a later in the year, always fancied a designachassis rebuild but thinking of keeping it simple for this one.

What box is that Kevin?

I am still getting incrediably lucky with the Scout boxes. Just picked up another one for 75$ for my project.

If you are going to put coils under a Series frame, a whole lot of fabbing.
If you are going to convert a RRC or D1 frame to fit the Series body, its not as bad. Specially if you have a series frame you can first tkae lots of measurements and photos from. And then cut off the outriggers and rear xmmember from.

If you plan on keeping the 88 tub I would cut 10" out of the coiler frame and make it a true 90. This will center up the axle in the wheel wells.

It is a designa chassis. All rover parts, D90 column and a disco box. Did a GM alternator conversion at the same time.

Randy,

When you painted the bulkhead, what kind of primer did you use since the bulkhead had been galvanized? What kind of prep did you have to do to the galvanizing before you could use the primer?

Kevin, if you do the Desiga chassis, its just a bolt on set up with very minor mods. Thats a killer D-90 you got there too...



Ernie, after galv, sand and scuff the entire thing and get rid of any galv runs or bumpy spots with a sander then you have to metal wash and prep it with special 3M products.. then hit it with the primer.
