Problem of living in Alaska is its to damn cold to power wash outside. so I had to move into the garage and hook up to the water from the back of the washer. One side is painted and letting the other side dry then paint

Entire wiring harness from auto sparks including towing harness $400 and only took 4 days to get here. This will make the install much easier

Cleaned disco axles and primed frame with galvy primer. Also managed to trip and hit my back on the corner of the bumper. Wow did that hurt

I got some more work done on the rover this week. Made rear upper control arm brackets, I do not understand why these are not welded to the new frames. Surprisingly found out you can fit 4 35s tires, 5 15x10s wheels and a car seat in a Jetta with some persuading. I also went and bought a bunch of pvc to make a much larger paint booth to finish more panels at once.

Test fit the engine and turns out the turbo side engine mount bracket is wrong so I either need to make one or purchase one.

Progress has been slow next week will be in high gear, 9 days off to devote to the rover.
mounted some panels to check fit and see what needs to be trimmed for tires.


Brakes are 80% done just need frame to bulkhead connection and front caliper brackets.
Had to buy a new brake flare tool old one was crap

fuel lines are done used -80/+300 poly lines wrapped in plastic housing and new tank



tore into transmission to install new mainshaft and replace baulk rings

my little helper not being so helpful

I finally spent the money and bought an impact driver and new drill best money I have spent in a long time on tools,

I wish I had room for a bench stupid washer and dryer

Updates couldn't find a brass bushing or bearing to work for the steering shaft, so Home Depot to the rescue. I made a make shift lathe with my drill and a fill ,worked out awesome.

Interesting, did you just bond them on? as the originals are aluminium welded.
