Good call. I did a few thousand $$ in damage to my 200tdi thanks to not having a snorkel, some bad judgement, and some even worse luck. I have a snorkel now...

Jay, I think your 84 looks like it has come a long way from when you started the post. I live down in SD and have a 85 110 that i'm also trying to figure out with the aim of spending more time overlanding in the desert. I'll post some pictures later. It seems like I'm always driving the truck on guard wondering what it's about to throw at me. Thankfully my frame is in good shape, but doors are in serious need of repair and i've got a few small rotted parts on the bulkhead.

Well I got the sill pieces and figured it was time to fix what I think will be the rest of the frame issues for as long as I own the truck - here is the first sill piece removed - I wish I could say I was doing the work my self but I have a great fabricator that I trust and he enjoys taking my money so its a win win

once this is done the only "rust" that will be left will be the door frames that might get fixed down the road - I put my newer door cards on and they cover the rust well so I wont get tetnis from the doors at least

So did you remove those seals from the floors like we discussed? Was the sill gone under it?

yeah I pulled those off the next day - I would say the piece of metal that was there for the seal was gone but the sill was in fair shape - I figured long term I would be happier with it replaced - I had already made the investment in the part so putting it on was the next logical step - maybe when im done I can sell it for 40,000

Ill get some picture up tomorrow when I go empty my check book!

Truck looks better every time.
the brush bar and winch look like they belong there.

It's hard to restrain from doing everything at once. I've been picking one project every quarter or so and burning through my budget at a controlled rate. Doing as much as you can yourself certaintly helps. I've got to do my headliner next, followed by dual batteries, upgraded alternator and relay-fired 55/65watt headlight upgrade.

What happened with the T-case?

BTW, who cares what it's worth when you're done (within reason). I mean this is a hobby and if you're all in for $40,000 by the time you're done but you have EXACTLY what you want....then who cares? Even if the ports are flooded with 25-year-old Defenders for the next several years and the US market is flooded with imported ROW Defenders they will always need work and restoration so if yours is solid it will always be worth a premium.

Just like the rest of us, I'm always looking at ROW trucks for sale on eBay, UK sites, etc., and it is rare to find one that has remained pretty original (albeit needing some rust abatement) like yours. The look is just right IMO.

Depending upon how inconvenienced you are by the RHD factor, that is the only thing that I'd probably put on the wish list to change my truck (or yours).
