Pretty much galvanized everything except trailing/A arms, coils, steering rods, and axel housings. Only issues was a little warpage on the bulkhead (easily fixed) and the seat box trays. ( haven't attempted to fix yet).

Very happy with what I had galvanized. I guess if I were better motivated I would have done the pedal box and all brackets under the hood, but I've never has rust issues under the hood so I left that stuff alone.

Just hope the paint sticks!

In an attempt to fix the door gap for the RH front door, I worked on it until it was broken.

Unfortunately I did not have any spare hinge to bulkhead bolts. So I sourced something similar locally. However, the diameter of the head was too big.

After chucking it into the drill and carefully applying a file to the edge, it was good to go.

Now the door gap is better, and a set of proper bolts are on their way.

Looks very good. What did you do at the fuel filter? If you haven't reached there, please keep us posted.

I need to drill a hole for the fuel filter mount. Just trying to get the fuel lines perfectly straight before drilling. Will do it later this week.

Thanks for everyone's help. The truck started for the first time and sounds SWEET. After intense research via YouTube, Landyzone, and other forums, we learnt that The stop solenoid was not connected. We connected it and the truck started up w/o any problems.

FYI, the parts I used were:

* WLR000020 (genuine)
* WLH100570 (genuine)
* 1/8" ABS plastic sheet to form the blanking plate for WLR000020.
* 5/8" fuel hose to adapt from WLH100570 to the original overfill hose
* a short (0.5") length of 1/2" steel tube inserted in the original overfill hose to prevent collapse
* Stant 10591D locking fuel cap.

My 200tdi power steering system is different than the 2.5td system. Therefore, I'm using my 2.5td power steering pump and having lines made to fit. The 2.5td had one pulley on the timing and 1 on the power steering pump. I had to take the double pulley off the 200tdi and put it on the 2.5td pump.

Picked up my laser cut load space floor and other bits today. Mmm 1/8 aluminum. Bent up some parts in procrastination of getting back to cleaning off waxoyl and repairing my frame.
