That frame is better than 90% of NAS frames. Patch the holes behind the cross member and send it to be galvanized. Your shock towers even look non-rusty. Someone will want that frame.

You're right, Ron - already sold I've decided to pull the trigger on galvanizing the bulkhead, shock towers and sill channels. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what to do with the seat box? I'm going to have it sand blasted cause it has a fair amount of surface rust but I'm not sure where to go from there. Are there other things I should consider galvanizing or powder coating while I'm at it?

Take the steel part off and galvanize it then refit.

Shock towers, crossmember, cappings, spare tire carrier, inner panel on tailgate, third brake light bar, gas tank skid plate, consider door frames (never done them myself on a soft top), support cross members under tub, all the little brackets for the chassis and body, lower cage mounts (especially the ones at the back, the a pillar mounts, and the under bar) basically if it is steel and not an axle or radius arm (they have been done too), galvanize it.

The part that holds the battery and the storage compartment under the passenger seat. They are riveted/glued on to the aluminium part. It is pretty obvious which is steel and which is not.

Cool beans. I'll take my inventory tomorrow. Should take a couple weeks to get everything sand blasted and galvanized. I know it sounds aggressive but I'd like to be on the road by mid July. Have a road trip out to the Brandywine and Lehigh Valleys at the end of the month and would love to make the trip in the Defender. The engine, transmission and t-case are done so it's really just paint and reassembly. How hard can it be?
