Well, the great (terrible?) part about the blasting is that it's identified ALL of the areas that need repair.











Sooo...ordering a bunch of stuff from Bearmach next week; learned my lesson on which freight companies NOT use hoping to start aluminum repairs asap. Then fit Recaros, then have frame cleaned up, then reassemble.

As far as the TD5, it's already got a boost box so I think I'll just repair the leaks (valve cover, injector harness,etc) and ceramic coat the the exhaust. Maybe en EGR blanking plate.

Yeah...really a different project. I've got a bodyman from the Caribbean doing the paint and body. Lots and lots of Defenders in the Islands so he's really familiar with the ins and outs.

Great project! Nothing too too horrible, all problem areas are standard for Defenders, so, fear not, the rear xmember does look a bit dodgy, though.
For the upstand and rear tub floor you may order Bearmach, but you can also go to YRM. Better yet, you can get it custom-cut and bent for you locally, all you need is 1/8" aluminum sheet. I went with 1/8" checker plate for mine and it costed me significantly less than getting it from UK.
Here's my DefenderSource build page to date: LINK
I'll PM you about your bodyman, would be curious to see what he would charge to take care of my Landy. As I'm now in Montreal, and not in Calgary, I'm hoping I can get a quality job done for less than what Calgary bodyshops wanted.

That's a great idea and probably what I'll do. The aluminum and a various brakes are on hand locally.

Used an aggressive blasting media and the chassis has responded very well.



















Primer and paint are tomorrow if everything stays on schedule.

Steam...lots and lots of steam from a diesel fired pressure washer. After plastic wrapping anything that looked vulnerable.

Are you soda blasting yourself or sending parts out. If you are doing it yourself,what gear do you have?
Iam about to take on similar 1990 UK 110. Waiting on truck delivery now.
Thanks
