I had an aftermarket tank in my SII that had some kind of wierd paint on it that basically just fell off. That has now been replaced with a stainless one that was 3 or 4 times the cost of a new steel one. but will likely outlast both the truck and me...

From the weekend. Looking almost done. Still a pretty good punch list, but the end is in sight
certainly.
The wings need a bit more futzing.

The last pics are for jonesy. That's what non bodge work looks like. Now TAW can put up pics that don't suck. This using the template Charles has.

When you know, please post up. I'm looking into options to help quiet my diesel a bit and the hood is the next piece.

Damn Bill, that doesn't look like a machine you might off road.

After all the work would you ever do another ? IE was it therapeutic in any way ?

Looking good Bill. How did you fit the brake pedal tower without cutting off that bracket?

Bill that is awesome looking - all of it! - thanks posting up those pics of the servo and fender cuts! I think that it looks fantastic.

I am in no hurry as Craddocks needs to ship my stuff - but looking forward to getting the template

The one to the top left of the pedal tower. I think even with the wing off I had to remove mine to get the tower to fit.

Hung the bumper that Jeff tack welded up. Looks good, needs some minor tweaks, but is right on for the most part. Fooled around with intercooler plumbing. Think I got it, but what a pain in the neck.
Removed seat box and tore out the steel RN underseat tool tray. Going with the deep YRM tool/battery boxes both sides.
The YRM boxes are not welded or anything on the corner seams, so they will need to be tig'd up or something. I suppose that angle could be riveted on there. They are thick and well made tho.
So, the punch list looks smaller now, but there is still a lot to do before it goes down the road.

OK so I pulled out the sh!t RN under seat box. I cobbled together the two YRM under seat boxes. I modified the passenger side one to have a little bit extra room. Got 'em primed and painted. I was still a little unhappy with the brake handle mount thing I made. Not the least significant was that it wasn't centered in the seat box opening so I took the sawzall to it and cut it apart. I redid it with a better position for the handle and the brake cable is at a better angle. Then I moved on to getting the tool trays under the seat box. Gosh what a pain all those rivets are so inaccessible! For those who care the tool tray rivets are on 2 1/4 inch centers. I won't bore you but it took 4 1/2 hours to drill all those holes and rivet the boxes in. Then it was sand sand sand to get the (already painted) seat box ready for another coat of paint. Mixed up the Nason, shot the box inside and out and set it aside for next time.

I use 5200 and rivets on the YRM seat boxes. Best seam sealer on the planet and paintable.

Plumbing and seat box look great, Nothing to be ashamed of there.

I to use 5200 black and rivets on lots of stuff rover, and yes it is messy . I mask around all the areas that I'm applying it so I can peal back a clean line .

Nice Project
