NAS 110 145/500 Restoration

Now that there is some progress and plans, I guess its time to start a thread dedicated to this resto.

I bought the truck in late 07: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...ad.php?t=13597

Some choice quotes from that thread:

WhiteD90: "it looks like it is in decent shape"

Wrong!

JimC: "I've seen worse"

Wrong!

Recent quote from evilfij: "I don't know if I've ever seen worse."

In all fairness, I might have seen worse sitting on ECR's lot, but that question is purely academic.

First, I've pulled the cage and had it powder coated, pix to come.

The most recent progress is freshly blasted and galvanized parts...

There was a little warping on the bulkhead - you can see in pic 4 that the center panel, which is only one sheet thick and not boxed in, has a series of ripples in it. That's kind of a bummer, but hardly a big problem. I'm assuming of course that the bulkhead is still square...

Anyway, here are some pix of what I'm starting with. Not good. And it only gets worse.

That brings back memories...My bulkhead and rear cross member were a lot worse, but it looks like your doors and door sills are in worse shape. Where did that one spend it's life Jim? Mine was orig. registered in FL, but spent the vast majority of it's life in MI.

This was a one-owner truck which lived its life in central New Jersey. I'm guessing that some of this stuff showed up before the corrosion warranty expired, but it would have been unlike the owner to do any maintenance or take care of the truck in any way.

Some choice quotes from that thread:

WhiteD90: "it looks like it is in decent shape"

Wrong!

QUOTE]

Well I was...

A) making you feel good by comparing it to the relative shape of mine
B) looking at pictures you sent...Distance is a rusty 110s best friend
C)letting my brain tumor get the best of me that day

Take your pick...

I'll be watching this, I'm a bit behind you with but with similar plans. Take lots of pics and good notes please!

I also mentioned to Jill that it was basically a $30,000 title.

Mike - you win.

Ron, in all fairness, its not a 30k title. Its a 30k SD roll cage with a title. And the fender flares are good.

And Tis, I'm not impugning your powers of perception, just highlighting the big difference between how it looks and how it actually is

I probably could have repaired all but the 5th door and bulkhead, but due to the extent of my rebuild anyway it seemed better to just replace everything, especially because I apparently was buying parts at the right time. It seems like the price for doors and bulkheads has really drastically increased in the last couple of years.

Damn my 110 is looking better every day. I have the dash out right now and the back side of my bulkhead looks new. My biggest issue is right below the windshield on the passenger side. Plus a hole close to the floor. I am convinced the AC had to have done this but not sure.

But you bought it sight unseen (other than pictures) right?

Chassis and drivetrain no good? Even if you are putting a diesel in, the old engine should fetch something no?

I actually went and saw the truck when the PO was asking a higher price, and I passed on it once, but left a standing offer for what I thought it was worth (25k). He called me a few months later after several buyers fell through and we came to 30k as a price. My memory must have clouded in the meantime. Thing broke down within 150 miles after my wife picked it up. I'm not counting on much being able to be sold off..

I could put my hand through my old bulkhead.
The bonnet was just attached on one side.

Jim. I have a set of NAS 110 middle doors complete that are in much better shape than yours. Special price for Moderators.

Went to the DMV today to get title changed to diesel.
Guy comes out, looks around for 2 secs and says: "I just have to make sure it says diesel on the engine." Then he fills out a quick form and I'm good to go. Woohoo!
Go back inside, turn in my title. New title coming in the mail in 4 weeks.
The whole process took 45 mins with scheduled appointment.
SMOG EXEMPT FOR LIFE!
Go figure...

Good news on the title Ze - All I had to do in WA with the yellow truck was to fill out a piece of paper. And thanks for the door offer, but I've already got a decent set which Pendy is fixing up for me.

sounds like a familiar story...one man's junk...I know people who go to the dump to shop for tires. Speaking of which- Ron, I may have a buyer for your chassis...
