Fitted new front brake pads in preparation for the MOT test on Tuesday. 7 out of 8 pistons slid back into the callipers without drama but there's always one that requires just a little more work... WD40 and an old tooth brush cleaned the muck off and in it went New pads bedded in within a couple of miles.
Noticed movement in the front "hockey stick" bushes on one side to late to get replacements - bank holiday weekend

Anyone know what PNs are to fix this mess? (Or better yet, a good website with references to all of these magical part numbers? It's all new to me!)
I vaguely remember popping that rear housing off with the transfer box in the car, and using a punch to tap it out from the inside.

Ouups. Seames to be corrosion a problem between the inner steel housing and the outer aluminum casting.

There's a mild chanche to get it out if you heat up the housing.
This will only will make sence if the rear outputshaft housing is strapped down. All the inner parts have to be removed.
The odowheel may get into problems with the needed temperatur?!
But when heated up to 200C the inner steel housing will give up because of the different extentions of the different materials.

Try it, but don't forget the needed pix of all about.

Why do you want to get this peace of shit out of the housing?

Installed the aluminum seat bases from Ash. These are nice, fit well and look good. Much better than the crap that was on there originally. Highly recommended.

Victory.

Doing a complete refresh of the LT230, and amazingly enough THIS is the only thing that's given me grief on teardown.

Since the thing was being torn apart, after removing the gear spline in the press, it was "easy" to put a punch in from the back side and pop it out AFTER I've removed a fair bit of it from the top side. Thankfully, when installed 27 years ago, the hole at the neck of the speedo housing was "inward" so I had something to put the punch into and knock it down.

Now I just need to get these housings a solid internal cleaning as there was quite a bit of sludge in the case. I'm debating between attacking it with my pressure washer versus a machine shop for a dip in a tank. And since it's a long weekend, I'll probably try the pressure washer first to see if I can get lucky

Must be summer!

It must be summer... cuz I got out the paint gun again.

Started my rover painting with the pickup cab roof. Trying out this paint- its a "military" enamel Ive never used before. GCI stuff I picked up on ebay by the gallon. "NATO green" Time will tell how it holds up. But it sprayed like magic. Easy coverage, seems to stick well. No special prep needed. I plan on doing this paint pretty down and dirty Army style. Just remove 10-15 layers of army paint and spray right over that in the driveway. I might throw down some thin (not HB as its not getting body work) primer. I'm going to do some adhesion tests with this top once it's cured. (simple tape and pull). With rough sanding and no exposed metal, it should stick. But lord knows what the paint is on there already. Everyone tells me to leave it "as is" but the bulkhead paint is rough and will rust. As well there are parts where large flakes have come off. One whole wing must have been covered with oil 3 coats of paint ago.. its just peeling up. took off most of that paint with a putty knife.

I've learned that its not worth it to me to paint a truck with a lot of care and attention to detail. I like to use my trucks and I won't if I'm afraid of a little texas pin-striping or loading it with rough goodies. My cars on the other hand. That's a labor of ... well, labor. I certainly don't LOVE spending 4-5 days on a fender before paint.

But this stuff is supposed to stick to anything. Basically single stage implement paint. Thin with xylene and spray. Dries a lot faster than I expected.

So, paint archaeology. The layers seem to go (on the bonnet anyway)- Green, white, black, brown, white, green, white, green, black, brown, green, metal. I assume a couple of those are primers. But maybe it was UN white at some point.. a couple times????? Other parts don't have nearly that much paint on them. Might just be the bonnets as they get destroyed get transferred to other rovers.

I actually went out and spent some time getting Margret ready for her transplant. Did a lot of sorting bits and putting away other parts that have been piling up over the winter. I HAVE to get going on this project......

Gave my girl a complete detail. At the advice of the hive mind here I used 303 aerospace and boy did it work. The safari cage had years of gunk on it and now it looks amazing.

I also installed a set of led lights for the interior. I installed red lights for the dash and they still aren't as bright as I would have hoped. I believe I need to drill out more of the green lenses in the housings but I'll leave that for another weekend. The dome led light is incredible. At night it really lights up the inside! Almost like more conventional vehicles.

Finally I installed a new stereo. A bit more work than expected as there was no simple wiring harness I could use. I had to cut all the wires and do the connections by hand. Fortunately all the wires are color coded which is a huge help. My truck now has a USB port and aux input and the sound system sounds significantly better than before (the old unit was 15 years old)

All in all a fun weekend working on the truck.
