Well I set to with a vengence, the dash is mostly out and everything back there had a thick layer of Moroccan dust over it.
The steering column was a so"n"so to get in, I shouldn't have put the clutch and brake pedal boxes in first, but I'm trying to take one bit off, clean and refurbish as required and then fit it to the new chassis, it's worked quite well up to now. Had to resort to a big hammer to fit the mounting plate through the hole in the bulkhead and it took a lot of messing about o get the brackets and linkages spaced out correctly. I should have cut my losses and taken the clutch pedal off again, would have been quicker and less stressful.
Anyway here's some pics. It was getting rather dark by the time I stopped
The main loom has a melted wire in it hopefully I'll be able to splice in a new wire, apart from that it's remarkably flexable
Hopefully I'll be able to get a bit more done today before I forget how it all goes back together, there's rather a lot of screws and wires to replace
Also the wiper mechanism, air vents & controls and washer tubes to sort out too.

Oh and it's taking longer than 5 minutes

Cleaning old parts before you put them back on is so time consuming...

So can supervising a small boy while trying to clean parts
He's just a whole bundle of trouble. runnng off with spanners........

Follow-up Post:

Mostly today I've been working on the loom (and hunting spanners).
Luckily the burnt wire hadn't toasted anything else in the loom although some melted plastic was on other cables. I cut out the bad section, soldered on some bullit connectors and hopefully that will be that.
Can't see why it fried itself though which is a little worrying
Next is tofinish swappingthe dash then pull the loom to the back of the truck and thread it through the new chassis.

I wanted a lowered seat in the back. The standard seats mean that almost everyone finishes up sitting with their eye level in line with the top of the door or higher. I've mounted the seat at about the same height as the front seats. The wheel box in in the way so it's mounted in-board of that. The down side is that there is only room for 1 defender seat in the back, two are 3-4" too wide to fit between the wheel boxes.
The home made seat box is folded from 1 sheet of 2mm ali. 3" high at the front and 0" high at the back of the seat mounting. I'll snap some more pics at the weekend.
The bracket on the back door is indeed a shovel mount, there's a quick fist to hold the handle of the spade higher up.
The bracket on the floor holds the foot of a high lift jack with another bracket higher up with an M16 captive nut that secures the top of the jack, it's all inside and out of the dust/ grit & reach of light fingered people

Thanks. It was ever so simple to fabricate. I put the spade in a vice, bent the strip around the end of the shovel blade and folded the ends out a bit, then chopped the ends off at a jaunty angle. Drilled a few holes, popped in some rivets, job done

Here's a couple of pix of the seat box and the bulkhead that I'm putting in behind the second row seats.

It's up and running - passed the MOT test, taxed, insured, filled the tank=broke.and now there's a fuel strike - no diesel
It drives splendidly and apart from the alternator falling off no problems at the moment

That's exactly the route my friend took down to compete in the Moroccan outback a couple of months ago, most direct and best roads.

At the most southern tip of Spain is a great little town called Tarifa, my parents have a place there. there are 2-hourly ferry crossings to Tangiers on the fast ferry (about 35minutes), the port is a lot less busy than Algeceras,although do do end up right in african terratory, as opposed to Cueta which is Spanish, sometimes you get some hassle on the Tangiers side, but i honestly don't think it's much... i never had last time i was there, although was foot passenger not in a car.

Tarifa is great too, lots of good places to eat, PM me if you want any pointers!!

your 110 is coming on well too... mine is also now running...still a long way to go though, maybe we can mett sometime? do some lanes? (I'm in Swindon)

Jamie
