Bulkhead and the rest of the truck primed and painted today. Bulkhead and radiator panel were primed first with PPG epoxy primer. Everything was shot in nice atmospheric conditions with Gillespie Coatings alkyd enamel desert sand, 16:1 with hardener reduced with xylene 15%. Came out to a nice matte finish.

On the contrary, I'm rather chuffed to see it come back together as Goat 2.0

What they said! That's a rookie move but you are no rookie, so I can only think it was intentional - no teasing allowed.

Nothing very exciting to look at so far. You can see the contrast in the old vs. new color at least. Tub will be prepped and painted after it's all moving again.

Galvanized repair parts, epoxy primer, paint, waxoyls hardwax on the outside and waxoyl clear wax on the interior. I think I've done what I can to keep the rust worm away this time.

Waxoyl cleanup tip: If you get the black wax on your hands spray some clearwax on them and work it in, clean up with dish soap.

Looking good, Kevin.
It seems most everyone in the NE prefers Waxoyl.

Is there really a difference between the black waxoyl you applied to the bulkhead and, say, 3M spray-on undercoating or other commercial undercoating?

Many of the other brands of undercoating are rubber based and will let rust form and spread behind them. Waxoyl goes on like crude oil and never really dries, you can always dig a fingernail into it and disassemble parts that you have applied it to.

Clutch pedal tower strip caulked,bolted back in and piped up. Wiper motor and assemblies remounted. Wing mount brackets repainted and reattached with new stud strips. New drivers side brake lines being made up since the old ones were kind of floating around having been made to the contour of the original frame crossmember which was cut out and replaced further forward during the power steering conversion. Goal for the weekend is to have the lines done, front of the frame horns repainted black, radiator panel and radiator/IC installed and the front drivers hub seal replaced as well as run the harness back through the bulkhead and mount upper dash panel. Really observant types will notice that I cut off the lip on the edge of the door opening so that I can use newer defender style door seals.

Looking good. So what's strip caulked? Are you caulking between the components before bolting them together? I have my clutch pedal box out of my series right now and it's got a rubber gasket that's looking a little worn and was wondering what the best replacement for it was.

3M strip caulk, you lay a strip around the hole in the toe box and then drop the pedal tower on and bolt it down. Keeps you from having wet feet when it rains. Also good for sealing up the tunnel and seatbox.

Lovely, thanks. I was thinking corrosion, but that makes perfect sense.

As much as I loved the yellow on that truck, I think that new color will look sick when it's all together. It will certainly match the type of build and if you are keeping the black wheels and SSR's, will match nicely. Great work. Keep the progress/pics comin'!

A bit more done. Radiator panel, radiator, horn and IC installed. Time to start pulling some nights and get it sewn up. Fuel tank, wiring harness and dash next.

Looking great!

If I might add a tiny suggestion, run the black waxoyl up on the flat part of the bulkhead below the pedal boxes. If you are running a mud shield, that area is rust prone. Also, I would run it all the way up the outside where it "flares" for lack of a better term and comes to the little point as mud gets trapped there between the bulkhead and the fender.
