came across someones personal land rover website. they did the same thing you did with forgetting to remove the screens when they galv'ed their bulkhead. ended up using a blowtorch to heat up the zinc and blowing it off with an air hose pressured below 10 psi i believe.

pretty sure this is the website http://www.rustyrovers.co.uk/

Looks good. Is it better to remove the excess zinc in the rivet holes before painting?

Almost certainly, a case of mis-communication between me and the body shop.

I might just try that technique with the torch - It would ahv eto burn off the paint first, but it could work. Can't hurt (too much) to try.

Made some good progress this week. I wasn't able to get my replacement chassis in time, so I'm having to repair this one, which is a bummer. Now I need bulkhead outriggers...

I'll post more pix when I get on my own computer.

If you can drive to buffalo, you can have mine (galvy chassis that is).

Here are some photos from the disassembly process - it will be nice to reassemble and not have the primary tools be the sawzall and angle grinder.

Wow, that is BS how the photo resizer inserted that text in the photos. Oh well, more later.

Remind me what you are doing chassis wise? You mention a replacement chassis abov, but I see you put on a rear cross member in the pics.

More stripping - she's down to a bare frame now and I'm waiting on the arrival of some parts. Then its off for blasting and galv. I was waffling on whether or not to galv this chassis, since the britpart pieces will make it somewhat inferior to stock, but after some consideration, I just don't want to half-ass it even if its not the best thing ever.

Take the long bracket that supports the front of the tub and the middle floor brackets off before you galvanize it and please let us know where you find the brake line and fuel line clips. If when you blast the frame there are no holes it it or really thin spots, the galvy should be fine and almost as good as new.

I find the brake and fuel line clips in my stash since I ordered them in quantity when I did the yellow truck. I'll probably have to order some more, so I can get a few extra.

The cross bar is already off, and the other stuff will be. I won't fuse anything to the chassis with galv...

"I won't fuse anything to the chassis with galv..."

Concern is that galvy won't get between the two parts and you will have nice holes there after a while.

Ron - this is me you're talking to - what are the chances I'd leave anything attached to the chassis? I'm the guy with a Swagelok fuel system in the 90...

Man that thing is rusty

You are a saint for saving it No doubt that it will be a top notch ride when you are done with it as you always do a great job (I still remember when you wanted to send me a sheet of TI to make you a skid plate... talk about overkill)

Note to self, stop bitching about the 500 gallons of waxoil that the PO used on my 1984 90"

Ok JimC, I was just thinking you might not know they came off if you were in a rush.

Nice work Dood.... and your woman helps?? It's all I can do to get mine out to help me bleed the brakes. (although she is stellar at wine delivery while I'm working )

So, remind me again why we like these rusty hulks?

What's that badge you have...Bloody Knuckles?

Jim, is that your space or do you just have garage friends all over the country? Subscribed, can't wait to see how your rig develops.
