Changed the engine oil, filter and topped up the front axle oil.
Created a small oil slick.
Checked oil levels in the rest of the transmission.

It stopped raining for a while

TIG was prohibitively expensive. Mix of a sacrificial aluminum body panel, aluminum putty, panel bond and... bondo

Was that a common sense mixture or did you follow some sort of measured mixture?

LOL. I'll try TIG followed by aluminum putty, but expect to have to use a little bondo too.

TIG all the way.

It's easy as long as you put backing on the hole.

I really would have preferred welding but the only action in town was a race shop and they showed their interest in welding the rover by quoting $2k for just the patch work... uh no.

Bill, I'm not doing the work. I'm packing up for a move at the end of the month and decided to do this now before it hits the back burner post move and new job. The guy mentioned the trade name for the aluminum puddy but I can't remember it right now. He showed me a few spots where he was in the process of using it and I couldn't tell it from the surrounding aluminum it was pretty cool.

Well, if you get a chance and remember to ask post it up please...might be useful for some of the guys that don't weld. I know I'd like to keep some on the shelf....the whole thing looks pretty good!!

Is it Devcon? I have used it before and if done correctly does a nice job.

It wasn't Devcon but that did come pop up a lot when I was googling trying to figure out the name of this stuff.

I'll swing by this week and see if there are any spots with it still exposed and snap a pic or two of a patch job and the container.

Alumaweld rod also works if you have a propane torch and some scrap 18 gauge aluminum cut as a backer.

You only need a propane torch and a way to make the surface horizontal to use the alumaweld.

I imagine after TIG you still need to finish it some before painting.

Replaced my front sway bar bushes yesterday. The originals had turned to stone. Very happy with the improvement but now I can't stop thinking about replacing others. I know my rear shock bushes at the top seem too small. Like they've shrunk a little bit.
