D110 resto-slight mod

Hello all. I have been around here for along time with my own D90, but my son wanted a 110 as a first car. I told him no and he found a sweet deal. Being the pushover that I am, we imported a truck for him. Anyway, he has 2 years to get it up and running.

These are the major short term goals.
1. Get a tire-tube that will work as we have one that is flat. Did not know these are tubed. Wow.
2. Put one of my old reman steering boxes in and get power steering back.
3. Figure out what to do about getting disk brakes on the rear. Also did not realize the rears were drum.

Long term goals.
1. Pull the motor and rebuild
2. Fix the dents and paint it a cool color.
3. Fix up the interior. Make it safer, including an internal or external roll cage. Not sure how we are going to go on this.
4. Add HVAC.
Anyway, we will be posting updates.

The rubber channel thing is super easy to make. Alternately you could simply glue it using weatherstripping adhesive (neat and tidily) Or use screws or use plastic rivets or....
Do you have any of the old T post? Just measure off that. The pillar is 90 degrees to the sill piece, so you can put a square on it to get it in place.
