Was it your plan all along to go w/ the gas V8 vs a Tdi in your 110, or was the 4.6 just in the right place at the right time??

A@ Garth - I was going to go with a tdi until I got orders to Germany, where they actually inspect to see what motor is in your vehicle. I could put a tdi in, but unless it was Euro-IV compliant, then I actually couldn't drive it to the installation where I'll be assigned. The new German laws restrict certain vehicles from certain cities based on emissions.

As far as aligning the body, Ron is right, pretty much all you can do with the bulkhead is lean it and use washers to move it fore and aft. Everything else can (and needs to be) shimmed into place.

I thought someone on this board said they're like giant erector sets and "just" bolt together

Sounds like you're having a good time Jim, keep the pics coming!

Lots of parts back from the paint shop, and they really did a good job. I was pretty specific about not wanting the spot welds filled in or sanded, and they actually got it right. They also did a fabulous job of re-skinning my rear doors - I'm just overall quite pleased.

Things are coming together quite nicely. The string test indicates that the tub is lined up perfectly with the bulkhead, the door gaps are coming out with a perfect 3/16 gap front and back, and even the b-pillars are in the right spot.

Things would be going faster if lazy kitty would pick up a wrench.

This is backing up a bit, but I've got more pix indeed-

Here are a couple of the motor, trans and t-case all linked up following my pilot bushing debacle. Lots of bruises on the legs from supporting the trans and t-case and wrastlin' 'em into place.

There's a pic of the damned rear cage support that cannot be installed or removed with the tub in place. Later D-90 style supports just bolt up from behind the crossmember, but these "clip" over the top. Forgetting to install them now would lead to massive fits of swearing later on.

There's also another appearance by lazy cat, who won't so much as lift a paw to help.

Follow-up Post:

Incidentally, there's a pic there of a great tool I found - the "nutdrill." Its much easier and more controlled than the stupid hand-powered ones that have a tendency to jump as the mandrel breaks and have the potential to scratch your paint. This think sinks rivets easily and completely each time and is definitely the next best thing to a much more expensive pneumatic rivet gun. This was definitely 60 bucks well spent, and I obtained it with characteristic ease from McMaster-Carr.

Lovely. Yeah Ron was just telling me about the 110 rear support difference. I could pull those easily on my D90.

Dmitry if you see this, you need those little spacers shown in the third picture. They prevent your rear cross member from being crushed when you bolt on your bumper. Judging from the marks on the rear cross member of your old frame you didn't have these. Sorry for the hijack Jim.

The plaque was pretty easy, but it was a few steps. I bead blasted it, the powder-coater put a flat black on it. I sanded the black off the letters and then they did a gloss clear powder coat over the top. It should be pretty good for a long time now.

Wow and I was impressed by just stripping it, painting it with krylon and sanding the letters down.

I wish you had not shown the rivet tool. I have never scratched paint. I have been aware of that tool Now that I have seen it. Surely I will scratch paint now. So I may as well buy the tool I guess.

Uuugh

Send me yours when you are done with it. I'll give it back when you need it. One less thing to travel with.

Yep Doug, gonna go with the new dash and underdash AC. I'm not into the whole obsolete original AC thing. I was going to experiment with making it work, but in the end I just gave all my old AC stuff to Ron, who likes that sort of thing.

Also have a rear AC if you look closely at my most recent pic of the body. The enlarged window trim is the duct for the rear AC. Fortunately, it looks like only very minor trimming of the trim piece will be necessary to get the duct to fit with the cage.

And sorry Pendy, I can't send you my "nutdrill" - I don't have the hand strength that you do.
