Pics of the 110 coming along nicely

I took some pics the last time I was home. I still have some others earlier on that I don't have on my computer at the moment, but it should be nearly done now. These were taken a few weeks ago and it should have gone into the paint booth this week I believe!

Thanks Jim. I'm hoping to get it about wrapped up at Christmas break. There is still a lot of work to do though.

Unfortunately Andrew, you're really not fulfilling your obligation of providing us with sufficient rover pr0n. You're going to have to get off your butt, take a lot more pix, and get some better narratives so that we can follow the project better.

Yeah, I know...I'm a disappointment! haha

I'll try to take more pics and give more information when I am home again. I have some new projects in mind that I will document better though.

It looks like it's coming along great Andrew.

What do you have going on under the driver seat?


Is that your black BMW?

Under the driver seat is the panel I made with the new fuse panel & relays for all the auxiliaries that will be installed. I still need to add a couple more relays for the heated seats and, hopefully, the heated steering wheel!

Yeah, that is the 545i on the right in that one pic and it is the shop at the dealer in the background in most of the others.

A few new pics. I have a tendency to get caught up in the work and forget to take pics of stuff though.

Anyway, I got about half of the frame cleaned up and POR15'd.
New stainless fuel lines installed.
New stainless hinge bolts installed (the damn body shop painted over the others)
Cleaned and bedlined the rear wheel wells.
Painted the intake manifold & valve covers flat black and sanded the ribs down to show the aluminum.
Installed a new cap/rotor and 8mm Taylor Wires.
Straightened out some goofy rear light wiring that had been hacked up by the PO.
All wiring that I have installed or R&R'd has been upgraded to use Weatherpac connectors instead of the bullet junk that LR used.
Trimmed and installed the final wheel arch.
Realigned the doors and strikers so that they all close nicely.
Removed, cleaned, POR15'd & reinstalled the fuel tank.
POR15'd the rear axle housing (rear cover will be replaced as will the hard brake line in the near future).
Installed new front pads & rotors.
Pulled off a few final interior parts to go to powder coat.

Everything just takes so much longer than you think!

Lookin' good!

How are you liking that por15? The company is located about 10 minutes from my house, but I have yet to use it... my main question which I can never seem to get anyone to answer... I have metal that has either been painted or powder coated, there are spots that flaked off with rust on it, there are spots that are still fully covered with paint... I know the whole metal ready / marine clean / etc.. process... and that por-15 apparently adheres better to rust... but should I try to get rid of the paint that is currently on there, or just go over it with the por15 as well?

I would probably get off anything that comes off easily to start. If there is a lot of paint still on it you can probably get away with just roughing up the surface for adhesion and PORing over it. If most of it comes off easily I would take the time and get the rest off too though. I don't think you will have a problem as long as the paint underneath is well adhered to the metal though. Of course this is all just my impression and I am by no means a chemical engineer for POR15!

You'll get most of the benefit of POR15 by using the metal ready prep solution which is part of the instructions for using the POR15. Its basically a phosphoric acid solution like Ospho. POR15 is a tough paint, but I've had equal luck cleaning and prepping the area with the metal ready, priming and then spray painting. Plus the POR15 isnt UV stable and has to be top coated anyway. I like to use POR15 to paint parts that I dont want to galvanize that arent really seen anyway, like brackets and stuff. I've used a lot of it, some well, and some not so well. It excells where you can coat a part in it on all sides for a nice hard urethane coating.

Yeah, I wire brushed & 3M disc'd everything, then used the POR15 and then their chassis coat as a top coat.

Keep us posted!

Thanks! Well, it already has a 4.5L JE engine so I did the rear main when I was doing the clutch, and now I have removed and painted the Valve Covers, Intake Plenum and Oil Pan and installed the Mocal Sandwich plate with new stainless oil cooler lines. Other than that, I am going to leave it alone. I thought about cutting down the velocity stacks, but that gives more low end at the expense of top end and this thing already makes more than enough low end power. I look forward to really driving it though once I get it back together.

IIRC it is made by Duplicolor. It comes in a blue can with black cap and is sold by NAPA. I really like this stuff. I found that by spraying it at different distances you can obtain many different textures. If you spray it close and heavy it will come out in a flat black, sort of hammered look but if you spray a top coat at a distance it gives a gritty non-skid surface. It also is nice b/c it isn't rubbery like undercoating. I also used this on the aluminum housings for the rear tail lights. By spraying it close it gave a really nice finish and looks great on them.

Here it is.

Some more pics!

I've been back at work on the 110 and it is really coming together. I need to take some more pictures too (I don't know where the ones of the headliner went) but it came out really nice. Instead of recovering the old one with fabric again, or paying big $$ for the Exmoor one, I reused the old cardboard pieces and coated them.

First I pulled off all the fabric, and used a scrub brush (dry) to remove any remaining foam that was stuck to the fiber board. Next I located any holes that I didn't wish to have show up (there are some additional ones that are hidden by the fabric) and put a layer of fiberglass mat over them from the back. Next I filled the holes with epoxy from the front and painted the whole thing with polyester resin. It takes 2 coats as the first one just soaks into the fiber board. Once that was finished I knocked off any high spots, in some places the fiber board was a little ratty and created high spots when the resin was applied (especially around the holes), with a small grinding disc. Once I was satisfied with it, I painted the pieces with a light gray primer and finally, sprayed a spatter coat over that. It looks great, and a number of people have commented on it when they have seen it in the shop. I'll get some pictures up of it soon, but it will be at least a week before I can get back to work on it.
