Actually I do need those brackets. The rusty bolts metastasized and spread to the surrounding metal.

Hmmm, those I might not have. I think they are with the old t-pieces.

Worst case scenario I can just buy 'em - I'm sure they're not rare.

Lots of little jobs over the holiday weekend. This stuff takes up so much time.

I finally got the new felts put in the side windows. Just cleaning those things up makes such huge difference.

If you forget to remove your vent screens before galvanizing, you will spend several hours with the 5/64ths drill bit and the approximately 6400 holes in the mesh.

Continuing my trend for excessive refinishing, I disassembled the pedal boxes and send them out to be blasted and powder coated. The do look really spiffy now.

Reinstalling the c-pillar cage supports is pretty awful. I didn't take note of some of the holes that needed to be drilled into the rear part of the t-piece before I installed it, so I had to work the drill in at an angle. The support is a really tight fit in the space anyway.

Some of the other stuff bolts up really easily, got the front cage supports up off the floor and loosely attached - much easier to re-tap the holes that way. Also started putting all the various plumbing bits back on.

The rest of the truck goes to paint at the end of the week. I hope evilfij sends me the sill plates in time

They are sitting in a box. If I fail, I will buy you sliders as RN has mantec for $349. edit: do you really need working vents. I never use mine as I assume if i do they will leak sort of like the sunroof on the lwb that has not been used in 5 years.

Alright, that sounds like a good offer to me!

Of course I need vents. It would always bother me if I left the screens blocked. My vents on the 90 only leaked until I realized someone had cranked away on the vent levers, which left them bent and incapable of closing completely. As far as I'm concerned, they work fine.

Jim, That would drive me nuts. I always remove the screens prior to galv. as well. YOu could always remove the screens and run without them. Series trucks do not have them. My IIa use to get so much air flow it was rediculous.

I actually started drilling because removing them seemed to be too much of a hassle, and a big mess. They're pretty much galvanized on now. I'm OK with the drilling, a wire brush cleans up the rough edges really well and the shape of the screen guides the drill bit, so the overall effect is very even and properly-spaced.

Im surprised you just didnt take a blowtorch and an air gun to the glavi'ed vents since zinc has a low melt point.

I did, but it set the paint on fire.

Jim, when I get a NAS 110, I am going to send it to you to restore. Are you bringing the 90 to Germany too?

The 90 is going to stay in the states at an undisclosed location. I can't have you people trying to liberate it, and my wife would park it on my chest if I tried to sell it. I'm thinking it needs a color change to G4 orange and a return to soft-top configuration when we get back to the states on a permanent basis.

I've got my wife to agree-in-principle to the idea of a Rover project every 5 years. So as soon as the 110 is done, I'm going to start scheming for a 130 project for the 2015 restoration season! Of course if I'm assigned to Upper Asswipistan or the Kingdom of Shithed at the time, it might have to be delayed.

The SIII vents go in nicely with a few rivets once you gnaw the old ones out.
