I have a few brand new if you need them. Imported them for my tub restoration but ended up not needing them.

Love the truck, especially the paint scheme, these old 110's have the coolest paints and i think the split doors are awesome.

Looks like a very nice rolling restoration.

pulled back the tub floor a little more and found more to fix - going to have this patched - and then going to stop looking for more things to fix

might have to put on the blinders. could go on and on. Got the titanic decals! So sweet! Might have to put one on the boat even though it pales compared to the $ put into the rover. I'm knocking on wood right now on that one!

It just seems like since im there this is the time to address it as I dont plan on tearing in after its put back together but everything that looks ok I just pull one more screw out and yikes I find this or that. I think I know I have addressed all the things that needed attention so I think it makes sense to admit that the truck is not a frame off restoration but it has had all the rust areas addressed to the point that it should be good to go for many more years

yeah, plus all the pics you've been taking shows the repairs made and is amazing for the history of your Rover. No guessing after you've got this done.

Your truck's looking nice. I'm going through sort of the same process with mine, although I've owned mine 6 years now.

How do you like the sliders with the step? I see you used to have fold-down steps like mine. My sills are rusting and I'd like better protection along there, but I don't want to lose my steps in the process. They make it a lot easier for my wife and two girls to get in and out. I'm just wondering if your new step provides adequate assistance for shorter people, or if you've found that you miss the folding steps.

This summer I've done new rear crossmember, cranked rear radius arms, bushings all round, rear A-frame ball joint, a bunch of wiring, rebuilt turbo, steering damper, ladder, new HD tie rod and ends, adjustable panhard rod, new tires, and probably a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting. Next steps are LED tail/stop lights to replace the stock ones I put on last summer that are already dead, picking up a Whitbread external roll cage this weekend, and when that gets ready it's getting galvanized along with my new-to-me replacement bulkhead that's going on next year now that I'm out of summer, welding and possibly galvanizing the door frames, dealing with sill rust issues, and that's about it for now. Plus the compressor/tank setup. Come to think of it, maybe I should have done a build thread too...

- Andrew.

I had the sliders with the tree bars on my 90 and they were a good cross between a step and a slider giving a place to put your foot when getting in but they are not as low as a step - doesn't bother me but if you are short you will still need to make a big first step to get your foot up on the slider - given the choice of extra protection vs a step I went with the sliders

truck looks great got my wiring sorted and just need to get the seats in for a trip this weekend - yes you should have done a build thread if for nothing other then yourself to see where you started and how far you have come

Thanks for the response. We don't get a lot of rocks here, so sliders generally aren't a necessity like they are in SoCal. You're right though about the height. I was thinking of the size of the tread area and hadn't considered that it's also a lot higher. I think what I'll do if/when I work on this area is to get slides custom made that work around the steps. The steps do get in the way a bit, but if I was going to do a couple weeks on the trail I could just remove them.

I should probably do the sliders at the same time I get my roll cage installed this fall, so they can tie in together. I'm actually more interested in the sliders for on the road, in case I get t-boned by another driver.

I've taken notes and detailed photos over the years as I've made changes, with the details getting better as time has gone on, and I've realized that you can't really have too many notes.

So I worked with a buddy most of the day to get the seats installed and everything seemed fine until we were done and they are way to upright its like a cheap seat in coach that wont recline but we headed home and hitched up the trailer and went camping in big bear

Will have to look at adjusting them so the sit better but it was down to the wire friday night

Why do you think they were so straight up and down? How hard do you think it is to adjust them?

I'm not really sure - we followed this video almost exactly

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=1TSPWf0s3is

we are going to take out the spacer under the rear bracket and notch the tub if necessary should fix the angle

So I got the rear seats adjusted down the best we could - dropped the spacer under the rear bracket and notched the tubs - I think it would be nice if the seat backs reclined a little more but I think this is the best you can do without getting crazy and changing the length of the rear bracket supports -

the seats look great and are nice but I do wish the were angled back a little more - my kids sit in them and they dont seem to mind but I'm 6'2" and I think on a long drive it might drive me nuts

also threw in a new rear mat to kill some sound and cover the mismatched floors at this point - needs a little trimming

Looking good. The lack of recline is curious. How well is the mat working out?

does look really good and I'm sure it just made that 110 worth a pretty penny more!
