In these pics you can see the soldered-on tab bent up to hold the insulation in place. No glue or anything so it's easy to remove later. TThis is just behind the dash panels where it will not be seen. For the conspicuous places I'll use something less caveman.
I will also use brass flat head machine screws in some places. I can use a nut or a automotive mushroom type headliner fastener like they use on the RRC carpet. Note the addition of another soldered on tab between the das and the door post. This is a finisher for the little bit of hardura and sound soak that goes in that little space. It's just a detail I added.

请和谢谢!

Decided to skip paint for a number of reasons. First, not painting saves a huge amount of time and money. Second, paint fails and the consequences are massive and expensive. Third, you don't have to be careful around the bare galvy.

I love the bare galvy look so agree with the decision. And those are great reasons too.

The tab with the hardura looks great. I may do that on the lower insides of my bulkhead. Who was your supplier of the material?

Wonderful build, Bill!

Just spent the morning reading the thread when I'm supposed to be in the garage dropping the 300tdi in my Series III. Just need to paint the front prop shaft and replace the front TC seal.

Thank you for the superb motivation!!!

Hey this is MY build thread! Hahaha Looks great! Keeping the rod linkage? I did. My biggest problem is air filter box. I am so out of room under the bonnet!

Oops, but I have so little to share!

I'm going to try to keep the mechanical linkage. Were you able to use the original cable and link it to the IP? I did order the heavy duty relay you recommended. Good find, thanks!

Made a rod to go to the IP. No need for cable

Great, thanks!


Bill, do you have the pin out/wiring diagram for the new glow plug relay/timer?

Updating.
The footwell insulation project took a major technical hit over the weekend. Apparently my aged (free) Singer machine is not up to sewing heavy vinyl Hardura. I kept busting thread and it wouldn't feed thru cz the hairy back would just confound the feeder. Also the vinyl edging I bought would go all cockeyed. So I gave up on sewing. It will have to be glued. I have the HH-66 Vinyl cement that I got from the soundeadenershowdown.com guy. Tested it and this works great at gluing the vinyl edging to the hardura. Unfortunately i hit upon this happy combination far too late in the day on Sunday so I had to put that aspect of the build on hold until next time.
The very expensive A/C compressor that I ordered from LRdirect arrived. Excitement was high as I tried test fitting it to the 300, but was instantly thrown into a fit of depression when I found it didn't fit. Ugh! So I either have to source anew the correct pump with the offset bolt holes, or make a new bracket for this pump so that it'll work. Heavily leaning towards the latter as I don't want to face yet another delay of who knows how long finding the proper part. (Side note: this scenario has played out over and over and over in the course of this build and I am so tired of it)
Cleaned up a ton of smalls, like soldering little discs of galvanized steel over the now-empty holes in the bulkhead where rivnuts used to be. Organized my wiring and staged it for creating the (fourth iteration) main harness.
So the punch list is no shorter after 3 weekends. I accept that this is the nature of things, but boy I am so ready to have this thing back on the road.

This sounds so much like the stage I am at. The 110 is "done" save for the final items but they have been a battle. The 80/20 rule has rung in my head so much the past year.

Wiring wiring wiring. Ugh. Here is the slick little seat heater button bracket I made for the rear passengers. One on each side of course...

So does solder stick well to galvy metal or did you not galvanize your bulkhead


One thing I regret terribly is not welding every single hole up prior to galvanizing my BH and then just cutting only the ones I need.

I'm thinking when it's all done I may take the bulkhead off. Weld them and then get the whole thing re-dipped or powder coated. But I'm years away from that

Soldering to galvy works fabulous.
