Jim,
How's it coming along this week?

Have you found out your deployment date yet? Let me know if you need me to come up and do that driver's side vent before you leave.

Ha ha, I'm out of town this week, and I ship out on the 15th or 16th. You're more than welcome to come drill if you want, and any one else is always welcome. I can't always guarantee brats though...

Lots more work done, but now its getting to be stuff that isn't so visible. The big deal is that the cage is on and lines up just fine.

I tried stretching the rubber cage foot gaskets (like on the NAS 90s where the front cage meets the fender) around the rear cage feet, but I didn't like the result at all. What I ended up doing was getting out some more of my trusty pond liner. I lined up the cage support until it was correct, then I sealed the hell out of it with 3M 4200 and basically glued on the rubber pond liner (I did make bolt holes before gluing it on). So the cage supports should be water tight before bolting on the cage. Then the cage itself just bolts right on top and everything should be (fingers crossed) OK. Plus the black backing helps disguise one damaged cage foot and keeps it from being so obvious.

Nice! Think you'll get this completed before you go Jim?

Completed as completed can get anyway - drivable, registerable etc.

Nope, I'm making arrangements to have a noted Rover Specialist spend a few months ministering to it.

Jim. Great idea on the pond liner. My cage lines up like s****t. Need to redo it. Did you set the cage in place first then tightened up the inner supports?

I set the supports and aligned them so that the cage feet would sit on them properly, then bolted them in place. I have a couple feet that don't conform well to the shape of the tub, but its not too bad. At least all the major pieces bolt together on top. I did have to use a quick-clamp in a couple places to get holes to line up.

So when I did my cage I tried the 90 feet as well and hated the results. I didn't even like how they came out on the front. I removed them all and have not sealed the cage. I have a tube of 4200 but haven't tried it yet. I didn't repaint my truck so you can image where the feet were it looks like poop as the old white sealant remnants are there. The rubber feet would have covered it but since that wont work and I am not painting the truck I want to know more about this pond liner you did.

I used the thicker pond liner, there are usually 2 thicknesses available. The thinner one is shinier and "blacker" and the thicker one is more "rubbery" looking. It slips easily between the cage and the body, so you can trace the outline quite easily. Cut it a bit oversize if you want, it will look good. I cut a couple of mine a bit over to cover some corrosion pinholes in the body.

I want to see it with the bolts through it. The whole foot at once. I guess I am confused as to what it covers if you cut it the same size as the foot.

We need to rescue it until Jim comes home, as Rovers especially diesels don't like to sit around for years.

So why cover the feet if it is an exact fit?

It covers the hole in the body. The feet are definitely not exact fits to the tub (but they line up so that I can bolt it down). Even if the feet were a perfect fit, the metal on metal would never be a watertight seal. My idea was to ensure the hole was sealed (except for the bolt holes) and then use sealing washers for the bolts to prevent water going through there. I obviously want the best fit possible, but an exact fit isn't necessary.

Been doing lots of work, but not a lot that is exciting to see. Things like installing calipers, brake lines, tapping holes, etc don't make good porn.

I do though have a mostly installed new-style dash and a lot of rivets in the body.

Saturday the 16th is the last work day on the truck before I ship out. Anyone who wants to come by is welcome. If several people come, we can do food again. There should be lots of fun things to do now like bleed brakes and find un-tightened bolts/screws.
