That IC is worth that in scrap. Nice score. Plan next big step for May sometime. I have some time coming.

Among a thousand little odd things such as making foam gaskets for my L691/2 lenses and bolting down the roof I did manage to get the doors hung. Gaps acceptable and the sight lines look pretty good. Those ball and socket hinges are a pain in the neck. I used stacked wood tongue depressors to get the doors sitting on the sill.
Come along used to get the bulkhead positioned.

Two days and it looks like I did nothing. However lots of progress nonetheless.
First some small items:
Got a set of L691 lenses from the UK and put them on, lookin fresh. Installed the anti burst catch on the tailgate so it closes properly. Installed the steering damper. Had to make a bracket for the steering rod and rivnut the RRC bracket to the chassis.
Then I set about the radiator support. This ate up 1.5 days. Why so much time? Well let's say that it took three tries to get it right. First time I used way too wiggly steel. Second time used stronger steel but it ended up looking like poop. Final one looks like something Ma Rover would have made. That's the whole philosophy on this build, so it is often hard to get it right on the first go.

Oh yeah. Had to take the front cover off the engine to get the drill in where I needed. Went and did timing belt, tensioner and crank seal.

Looks great! Here I thought it was getting a stage 1 front. What did you use for rubber bushings to mount the rad?

Using the round rubber things that the prongs on the bottom of the rad go into. Radiator frame uses similar rubber fitting that go in (yet to be drilled) holes on the fabricated mounts.

Go to post #321 to see how I am mounting the IC in the breakfast. This means that the radiator has to live in the same cross plane as the steering box. If I had used a RH steer or even a P38 steering box I probably could have avoided all this. Those would live on the outside of the frame rail (this of course implies other problems like steering rod length). I used the Range Rover Classic steering box cz I already have three of them laying around.
Dunno. I am going with this.

Thank heavens I found the glass from the middle door. I was pulling my hair out trying to find it. It was where I had looked twice, but failed to see.

Lesson learned:

Bend up cheap aluminum clothesline as template before doing it in expensive cupronickel.
