Before you do, you should take detailed pictures of everything for your (cough -- my) reference.

Oh, there will be lots o' pix, but this summer all I'm doing is fixing everything up and reassembling it on a new chassis. There will also be an RDS run in there too, so let me know if you need anything brought back.

JimC works faster than I do. Let me know when you are heading to RDS and I will give you a list and gas money.

I'm assuming you'd be swinging by my place to pick up your doors, so give me a reminder too, and maybe I'll throw some cash at George too.

Very impressive progress. I am nominating your for MVP though with your newfound picture posting skills. You even posted pix in that other thread about doors.

LOL. Nice EE reference there.

Yeah Ron's a madman with the photos now, although yesterday I gave him a perfect opportunity to throw a circle around a cage part and he didn't fall for it. It'll wear off quickly

Epoxy primer from lowes. I started by wire wheeling them clean as I could, then spraying them with rust converter, then two coats of primer. Tonight I spray with the group buy alpine white. This is a test hinge to see how it holds up.

Work is killing me (why am I so busy when it is nice out), but I was able to refinish the front panel. I sanded and primered and painted it from the JimC group buy alpine white and then put on the LAND ROVER 110 sticker. It came to me in a sad state (originally green and then repainted red). I decided I liked that sticker the best as I could not find the one that said just 110.

Now, where do I get the really short M6 screws?
