Today I started breaking down all the body panels. I removed all the old gaskets, bolts and anything steel. There are some cracks and patch welds that need to be done on some.
The shifter has been broken and repaired at some point. Since I have the glass out - I'm going to go on and see about replacing it with tempered or laminated.

Contacted the galvanizing facility in San Antonio again and was able to speak with someone this time. He said they could do all the galvanizing for her and the turn around is one week.

Mon-Mon or Tues-Tues.

Pricing is .43/lb if bare metal, no cleaning or prep and I do all the wiring up of the smalls - spacing is at a minimum of 4in per piece. Is .64/lb if they have to blast it and wire it up. There is a $110 minimum charge and the weight is taken after the pieces have been galvanized. He asked that I send him a picture to give him an idea of scale - so I pulled a few. I need to know what dimensions equate to 'smalls' so I can wire correctly.

I didn't get a picture of the tub - but I started pulling it apart. It's an adventure! If you haven't taken apart a tub...you are missing out! Good gravy...I was a different shade of brown when I decided to call it a day.

I just keep envisioning what she will look like when she's done ""

Nicely done, and nice shop footwear. You have me looking like a right slacker.

That galvy pricing sounds pretty good, even with blasting.

Thank you Charles, on the progress and my choice in footwear. I like to be comfortable. In one of those pictures I'm sitting in the wing grinding off bolts - had a hot one land in between my toes

Tomorrow I'll be at it again.

Also, I am taking two other members bits for galvy with mine - I'm planning to go in two weeks.

If you have something you want done - Get it to me soon please.

Thanks for the offer, but I have half a truck worth of bits to galvy (already did one run). Hopefully the second run will be soon.

You're welcome Charles. I can't wait to have my first stack of rover chrome.

Sooo this week I actually have a few days off, and today I built a 10x10 electrolysis tank. I am surprised at how quick this process is. I have a bunch of stuff 'cooking' and can't wait to see what it all looks like in the morning!! ...

Hello Gene! It ate everything off to bare metal and 12v. Pretty neat.

that's pretty impressive.

I've always thought that someone needs to build a drive-in tank made of concrete with ramps for a Defender to drive into. The pit would be about 6' wide and 5' deep and filled with enough phosphoric acid to submerge an entire truck up to the footwells.

Drive the truck in, pump in the acid, let sit for 3 days, pump out the acid through several filters, and drive out the truck for a complete power wash.

Very cool, always wanted to try this. Sanding becomes a pita quickly. Do you have any after shots?

Yes ...it does. This restore has been many 'first times' for me and I am embracing it, so when I saw the electrolysis demos I had to try it. Here are the two main videos I went off of and just did it bigger.

Great idea to make a large tank. Looking forward to seeing the results - when I did it in a bucket it worked so-so

The most stubborn has been the breakfast, where there are multiple layers of paint. The issue I ran into was that my set up was wrong. I was allowing the the steel wire that strung together my anodes to touch the water, so it was disintegrating and the process would stop. Had originally ran my rebar horizontally now they are vertical and wire is running along the top and out of the water.
