Great minds think alike, I was going to do exactly what you described. The insides of the door posts are absolutely hosed with waxoyl clear wax too. I'm thinking of making my own or adapting some sort of plastic mudshields instead of the stock ones.

Ike Goss fabbed up some aluminium ones on my series truck (he made the fenders). They flare down lower so that nothing can get up in that area. If I can make my way to the back of my garage and remember when I am out there, I will take a picture or two.

Ive been running a spacer (3/16") behind the mudsheilds where they bolt to the bulkhead which allows the dirty stuff to fall through.....especially if helped by pressurized water.

That'sa good idea. I've always done the same but just with plain washers. It isn't really enough space though. John Gerding at Forever Rover made some nice S.S. ones that went down much lower covering more of the toebox.

The one time I didn't install a mudshield I ended up having to do quite a bit of welding about 5 or 6 years later.

Heater blower and core mounted on the passenger toebox, couple of new pieces of heater hose and the radiator filled back up. Cleaned and reoiled the K&N, mounted new SS fuel tank and reinstalled sender and pick up, new electric lift pump mounted on top of frame rail inboard of tank, clutch piping locked down and refilled, engine bay wiring all hooked back up. Got the yellow topped charged up and should be turning the key in a day or so, then the wings and lights. Seatbox and dash completion after that.

No, too soon to push it like that even if it was driveable. Needs an inspection too.

Sort of, I think I got the timing off by a tooth. Nothing to do but go back inside and check it out.

WOW, I dodged the bullet! Went back in and found that I was one tooth off on the timing belt thanks to counting from a smudge on the crank gear rather than the timing dimple. Reinstalled belt, closed it back up and turned the key with fingers and toes crossed and it started on the first turn of the key with the old familiar rumble of a perfect idle! I better go to church soon.

I have not updated this in a while but the work has continued. It's pretty much all back together and has passed inspection. Everything works as far as gauges and switches and it's running great. Finished the paint (just the tub) on Friday. I now need to put the doors back together and on as well as the trim bits like sliders, winch, CB antenna, corner protectors, raised intake and roll bar. That and install the new ARB compressor under the seat. Need to adjust the fit of the passenger wing and radiator panel so the hood will latch properly too.

I really like that paint job a lot! the black accents really make the combination work great. Have you thought about changing out those RRC rims for some series steelies? just a thought. Overall, looks sweet!

I think LR alloys are one of their most underrated accomplishments, they hold the SSR's like friggin beadlocks. I would not want to go any narrower either.

I was partial to the yellow, but do like that color. Looking forward to seeing more pictures once the doors are on.

I tried to get a better shot of the paint finish, I'll take beauty shots once it's all trimmed out. I'm really happy with the color and the almost flat finish.
