What are your plans for the front?

Front already has a Qt 3 link on it.... so for the time being that'll stay. Long term I might make some new tubular shock towers but for the time being now, not really a priority.

Been a while since I got to work on the 90, had to get back to building works on our house now the snow has finally cleared & the outside temps got a bit warmer

The boss is happy(er) so, got the rear links tacked up & the axle trial fitted last night. Very happy with how it's sitting

Next to pull it all back out, finish the welding on the axle casing & links, paint it all & get it rebuilt into a rolling chassis. Going to concentrate on putting the cab back together next then & then work on the MS install.

Would be nice to be able to drive it out the shop for some spring cleaning soon as I want to get the floor re-finished & painted before it get too hot here.

Got some time last couple of weeks to get the axle finished up & check out the rear flex. Decided to go with 14" Bilsteins as I got them used at a good price, Set the droop so that the X-Eng 'X' springs are fully extended but still just loaded, then once I knew the approx top damper location checked the up stroke & with it sat on the bump stops. All worked nice & then finished welding up the brackets on the axle.

Now to shoot some paint and get all the fab'd parts and the bodywork colored up ready for bolting back together, the rear bulkhead doesn't look too bad for saying it was well & truly 'squadie' bashed by some brits at CFB Suffield

Got a start on the Megasquirt install last night, mounted the ECU into a stronger water resistant box & added some chunky MIL spec connectors

Slow progress... waiting on parts & the replacement loom to arrive from the UK, so made a start on the new brake lines and began to get the dash back together ready for the wiring loom to go back in. More work on the Megasquirt to do next....

There 'Double S' stainless steel, used to have a full system until I customised it.... just the headers & Y pipe left now. No issues with the LHD conversion as yet.

Finally got some time to work on the D90 again, built a rolling lifting frame & got the front half of the cage sat back on the truck. Re-measured the old cage & new cage mounts then spent a while on Bend-Tech to get the new back cage started. Using the cage clamps to link the 2 sections should be plenty strong, esp with 9 points of connection once done. There is only 5" between the existing cab hoop & the new back one so the link tubes will be very short. Should make for a nice & rigid structure.

Hopefully get some time soon to bend up the new back hoop, can then work on the rest of the cage.

Also found some nice 7" wide 'Jeep' flairs that'll cover my tires from the existing body lines. There made out of a plastic that doesn't crack when flexed (well, that's what the sales blurb says but they get good reviews on other forums). Should work well & not look too out of place

Got some tube bent & welded up for the new rear cage hoop.... standard full cross with a centre support for a top winch hoop. Kept the new hoop tight to the back of the truck cab so the linking tubes to the origional front exo-cage are as short as possible. Once complete there will be 9 points of connection, so should be plenty strong enough.

Next to work on the rear tub framework to keep it looking like a D90 & not so much a tea tray

Rear tub framework started and a full wrap around tree slider tube added giving protection from the front of the doors right to the back of the tub now.

Next to continue on the rear tub framework and think about the front tubular wings.

More of the rear skin framework done, gone for a sort of hi-cap look

The rear frames will have some large truck mud flaps hung off them on demountable brackets.
