Jim...nice to see things done right...looks great...
say, you wouldn't happen to have any pix of the dash gauge pod area going together would you?
I'm not sure I got all the parts I needed from Safari Rover and the diagrams are no help...is there a panel
that finishes out the left side of the dash assembly like the grab handle finishes out the right side? do you need LHD heat controls or will the RHD work?
George

Jim. Looking good. Did you remember to put your VIN plate before the dash went in?

If you mean "remember to set it in place and not screw it down" then yes...

LR heavy duty floor mats how I love thee, let me count the ways.

Floors are in, and I got lucky and found a full set of these mats a while back. They are super heavy and cut down on noise a great deal.

I found a great stainless bolt at mcmaster for the floors which has a very wide flat head, perfect for not interfering with carpets or floor mats and having lots of surface for clamping. On each one I used a big washer and a rubber disc cut out of my favorite pond liners, so there is not stainless-aluminum contact.

And the Josh Memorial Vents are completely drilled out, the covers installed, and the last bit of cage bolted in place. Cleaning the galv out of the loops where the vent cover pins are was almost worse than drilling out the holes. In the end I had to get a chainsaw file and just work it until the pin fit. Sucko, but done.

Here are a bunch of pix I took. There is a finisher for the left side of the dash, really just a cover for the heater controls. I haven't got all the pieces for mine assembled yet either. I think the mechanism is the same between RHD and LHD, I just don't know if the cables are the right lengths etc.

Anyone heading up there tomorrow? Those vents (and of course the rest) look great, Jim!

Love the rubber floor. I need the seatbox cover. Only part I haven't pulled the trigger on.

Jim. Where is the wiper motor and rod? Those are the first things that need to go in.

In some personal website or forum thread about doing a resto i remember someone wielding a drill bit to a flexible cable so that he could drill out those hinge holes for the vent covers. The cable was long enough so that he worked it from oneside to the other in one fell swoop so to speak.

Jim.... I always drilled out those holes before paint. That will be a pain in the ass for sure. Yeah, where is your wiper setup? And yes, the LHD uses a longer heater adjustment cable. The truck looks great

Wiper parts are MIA - a casualty of being in a hurry. I'll install them sometime in the future.

Anyway, I'm done for now. There will be no updates from me for a while. I dropped #145 off at a Well-Known Rover Specialist who will probably post something eventually on the progress. He'll get the thing running and sorted and I'll see the truck again in a year or so when I'm back from deployment.

The truck sits kinda high in the front. This was intentional to offset an ARB and winch.

Anyway, here's pix of getting her out of the shop and on to the trailer. I loaded her up and headed out. I parked in a nice dry parking lot only to find 6 inches of snow on my truck the next morning. By the time we got to the Well-Known Rover Specialist's place, it was a mess of snow and dirt. Oh well, it had to get dirty eventually, may as well be before its even running.

Even though you didn't get her finished I think it looks great and you did a remarkable job Jim. Hats off to you.

Given the weather and the final picture my guess is she's at ECR now. Am I right?

Thanks Charles. You're right, she's at Mike's in Maine.

The rack is the one That Shane Ballensky (Rover Hybrids) made for me a few years back. Its been on the 90, but moved it over.

I didn't mention the shop because I was just being coy. I was trying to avoid a ribbing about doing such a "great" restoration that I needed ECR to sort it out.

In all honesty, I had to leave some stuff un-done that was really embarrassing. It just sux to say stuff like "oh, I didn't get the transfer case linkage adjusted so it doesn't shift," "I didn't have a chance to bolt the panhard rod" and "these drive flange bolts are too long." Dumb stuff really.

Your choice.
I can send you some snow or some of the dirt we washed off Jim's truck.

I do not check PMs. Call or email if you need something.

ECR is not a parts source. We are not in the mail order business.

So I guess that's Carey's CJ-3B in the background of that last pic then.
