New project start-up

Here's a few pics of my latest project.


I'm using it as a donor for station wagon body parts......
My 110 is going to become a station wagon


Why not just use that one I hear you ask....
Shot engine... Turbo diesel anyway
Shot gearbox
Shot front axle
Someone has made off with the front doors
Dash and instruments are trashed

You UK guys have it so nice...all those "Parts Vehicles" just laying around over there. I'll trade you some rusty old Jeep parts for some rusty old Defender parts.

I'm going to build a 5 door but not with windows behind the second row of doors.
Not quite sure of the seating configuration at he moment, one for the driver and passenger up front and possibly one or two seats in the second row, nothing in the back in the way of seats.
There was some scary alloy corrosion affecting the heal boards for the second row of seats. the alloy has rotted away completely where it's bolted to the chssis
Didn't see that when I agreed a price for the back body. (Sadly I don't own the whole truck but if there was enough interest in parts...........)
I'm going to continue removing the rear lower body tomorrow and will hopefully trailer the parts home - every thing from the B posts back

Here's a few shots of work in progress. Several wheelbarrows of junk had to be cleared out first

Things have gone rather slowly, almost every nut & bolt have seized and have to be chisseled/ ground or sheared off depending on the accessability. There are some MAJOR rust traps under the ststion wagon body - far worse than a pick-up or van bodied Landrover, and so many bolts.
Finall went home for the night when having removed every nut and bolt in sight the Bpost and cills still wouldn't come free from the rest of the body

I'm now tending to think that they are held in place by the line of pop rivets behind the second row of doors. Anyone got any experience of disassembling a 110 County Station Wagon?
There's going to be a whole lot of parts going to the galvanisers when this lot is in pieces.
Why did Landrover stop galvanising the body cappings and many other small brackets that hold it all together.
I'll be having a further crack it on Saturday.......

How old is your donor? What engine are you planning on using?

Mostly I'll be using my 200Tdi truck - 1984 vintage, it's the SW body that's going on. The Donor truck is late 1980's and seems far rustier than my 110!

Follow-up Post:

I may fit a new chassis depending what I find when I take the hard top body off of my 110.

If you want to remove the sill/b-post yes you have to drill out the rivits.

Odds are the "t-pieces" (which is what I call the b-pillar/sill integral unit) are rusted badly. Crap pools on the bottom of the b-pillar and it rots

I would leave them on the body and take it off as one unit but this can be ackward.

also the little aluminium sail panels tend to corrode from touching the inside of the t-peices

The B post & sills don't seem to be too bad, they're going to have to come off so that it will fit safely in my trailer.
The main corrosion seems to have affected the alloy heal boards for the second row of seats. The steel brackets that the heal board bolt to are fine but the alloy around the bracket for about an inch has turned to white powder I suppose its the sacrificial anode principle I'll be doing some aluminium welding when I get all the bits home. The steel channel section that runs across the chassis below the second row of seats is toast as well and there's more alloy corrosion in the floor further back.
This is one uncared for donor vehicle.
I had briefly considered buying tthe whole thing but the more I see the more I'm glad I didn't.

I'm going to build a 110 Satation Wagon but far fewer seats and no rear windows at the sides. It's going to be my expedition truck. During last summer's expedition to Morocco many plans were discussed for the perfect expedition 110 (usually whilst drinking single malt...) those plans that I can remember I'm putting into practice. (I just knew finishing the bottle was a bad idea)
The main reason for 5 doors is accessability of equipment and camping gear. I seemed to spend the entire holiday loading, unloading and climbing into the deepest recesses of the Landrover to extract that essential item that was inexplicably never to hand or where I thought I'd left it. 5 doors will make setting up camp quicker & we won't be getting in eachothers way all the time.

Finally got it all disassembled, well the parts I wanted anyway. Resorted to the 'sparkly spanner' almost exclusively today, noisy but gets the job done..
Here's a few more pics of the load of junk that now clutters up the garage and drive

They're the only really sound parts. The rear tub has some very scary corrosion. somewhat worse than I'd thought on initial inspection. Looks like I'll have to disassemble quite a bit of the rear tub and galvanise the steel bits and patch up the alloy bits.
Where galvanised steel has been in contact with the alli there isn't a problem but where steel contacts the alli then holes have appeared
So it's a big thank you to the highways department for spreading so much salt about in the winter with further thanks to previous owners for never bothering to wash the muck off

Chris/Mike .
this'll need moving to the major rebuilds department...

Checked out the underside of the 110 yesterday before submitting it for it's Mot test and the progmosis wasn't good - a snowball's chance in a hot and firey place's likelyhood of passing - terminal chassis rot in the rear driver's side chassis from the rear radius arm back to the spring hanger. I could weld it up but on the whole I wouldn't trust it for another long desert trip, the chassis takes a real hammering on the Moroccan pistes.

So the long and short of it is ... new galvanised chassis please

Step 1 has got to be to create some space in my garage!!!!

Bought a new part for the rebuild yesterday

It was a bit of a task getting it off the trailer single handed

What I really need now is a pair of axles to stick under the new chassis so they're both rolling while I swap big lumps like the engine and transmission over

Remembered a 90 axle was laying about in the back of the garage took a bit of dragging out
No A frame or trailing arms... darn it...blocks of wood and ratchet straps that fixed it. Then AJS donated a scrap Salisbury to go under the front. OK, so it's a rear axle but now the new chassis can roll back and forward.

The rebuild progresses apace......about the speed the N.atlantic is widening
But it was Old Sodbury Sort Out yesterday and some very fine parts were unearthed. 3xdefender seats(in need of slight refurbishment) and a pair of second row alloy door tops for a station wagon and they are rare as hen's teeth & a door bottom to go with it. Exmoor Trim were there and for £60 I got two seatback foams and a seat back cover
I've a week off now so I'm hoping for some good weather so I can really get stuck in.

Thanks, removed the front pannel, rad & intercooler today. I'll be adding a new radiator to the shopping list all the cooling fins have fallen off

Really got cracking today. Dragged the engine from the old chassis, not without a fight - the lifting gantry wasn't high enough - I had to let the tyres down to alow the engine to clear the front of the chassis All the rest went well, all the holes in the enw chassis were in the right place, I aligned the new clutch correctly and the gearbox slipped straight on, just as well really as I forgot to torque up the clutch cover bolts so if had to slip straight off again happily I hadn't done up all the nuts that hold the two together
Bulkhead is next but it's in the same state as the old chassis - a bit holey, tin worms have got in and done their worst.....some sort of grit blasting, a spot of welding & fabrication and then a visit to the galvanisers.
