Thanks but I really don't want to drill out any more rivets unless I absolutely have to. I think I will just have to try to sand around them or be more careful sanding over them.

I agree with the drill them out comment. I would drill them all out, paint then rivet. Cool look

Don't understand. Why re-rivet a perfectly good rivet? And then go through the hassel of trying to paint each individual new rivet and not screw the paint up when riveting it back on the car, all after painting the car. Honestly I think it would be better to paint the already riveted rivets on the car. I'm sure I can get around the sanding off the primer from the rivet head whenever I go back to wet sanding issue by just trying to sand around the rivet. It's not like I'm sanding the heads off the rivets. Really not that big of a deal for me I think I'll move on. Thanks though.

Yup, the rivets are a pain. I know you said you've painted before, but have painted stuff with rivets?
The hoods are tedious. I hang mine and you have to keep the gun moving, it's really easy to lay too much on the rivet and when you finish spraying the hood you can watch the runs coming off the rivets. Just a heads up.

I wasn't saying I paint them after. I think you should leave them unpainted. Check out some of the ecr pics to see what I mean.

Today I removed the spare tire carrier, the rear door and of course the rear door hinges. I also applied a couple coats of primer to the newly bored out holes in the passenger side rear quarter panel capping. The hinges of course had some minor rust issues so I first had the side door hinges soda blasted which actually did not get all of the rust off and left some baking soda behind. I then decided to take each hinge (including the rear door hinges) and dip them in muriatic acid to remove any remaining rust. Once removed I sprayed each hinge with an etching primer and will ad a couple more coats of black primer tomorrow. I also picked up the doors today from the soda blaster, he was not able to get all of the rust out of the corner of the door pockets so I'll have to explore some other options in terms of rust removal from that area. Also primed the inner fender skin bracket that the roll cage bolts to in front of the windshield.

How I spent my weekend:
Slaving away working on my D90, priming the hell out of the hinges. I used my driver's side fender skin and turned it around to mark the holes on my new non-NAS passenger side fender skin. At the square hole for the roll cage I tilted the driver's side fender skin upwards so I could etch a cutting pattern into the new fender on curved part. For the nutserts for the side marker light I just sprayed a little primer through the nutserts to mark the holes I need to drill. Will have to find some new nutserts to crimp/tap into those holes for the side marker light. Today I finished painting my hinges with British Racing Green and sprayed the grill surround. Will have to add a few more coats to the grill surround though as I'm not quite yet satisfied with the current finish. Also I snapped the new rear passenger side quarter panel capping down with some new aluminum rivets. My dad helped me pound out the corner of my driver's side quarter panel where the corner capping is so that's straight now too. Now starting to reassemble the passenger side wing panel and inner fender, trying to remember where everything goes out of a bag of nuts and bolts I have. While I was at it I cleaned up some rust on the heater box and repainted that with some flat black paint.

Thanks. I got a white net-style sun shade across my back driveway that probably reflects half the sunlight and a couple industrial fans. Looks like I'll be pretty lucky for a couple days cause we get a break from the triple digits. By the way, have you looked at my Defender tshirts on this site? I also have a Facebook page facebook.com/weariconic you can check them out there too. Here's an example:

Forgot to mention earlier that dirt and dust can collect behind the rear corner cappings which can cause trouble when putting on that new coat of paint and that stuff blows out on your new finish. I would recommend removing the capping, checking for corrosion and removing any dirt and re-riviting. At the least one should probably try to blow this area out with compressed air or powerwash between the aluminum and steel capping.

It kills me how you didn't take the screw out of the rear door hinges! Just a minor detail but you are doing so much work already, it only takes a few seconds.

They have a new version of the hinges that don't have the removable bolt. Would be nice to have a set of those.

Does anyone have a pic or know where I can find one of basically everything that mounts to the passenger side wing assembly in the engine compartment? I'm reassembling my wing assembly and am having trouble remembering where everything goes exactly, I just have a bag of nuts and bolts. These funny brass-looking spacers are most perplexing to me, I think I remember them being part of the expansion tank bracket? Not sure.

Hard to tell without seeing the hole size but did you remove a steering guard or anything like that? Those pop up in a few parts of the truck - one of the places on mine was between the steering guard and the frame hors up front (the bottom right-most hole in this pic).

Here's another angle. I don't have a steering guard.
