Sussed out all the areas of rust that require attention, 

This area started rusting where they had drilled and riveted the cert plate... good work guys!

OK so more progress

 

Finished painting cab

 

Tinted top of windscreen, got new rubber and smacked it in using the string trick and a rubber mallet.

 

Painted inner cab black

 

finished prep/paint on RH guard, removed alloy flares for powdercoating

 

prepped/painted doors, spun up some new door hinge pins

 

degreased prepped and painted engine bay

 

Grrr kinda getting over this but slowly getting there step by step.

On a good note better phone means better pics!

English engine love...

 

Degreased and painted engine in flat black stove paint because its a pot bellied pig of a thing

 

Replaced valve stem seals, and reset tappets (googling was required)

 

Blasted and painted rocker covers

 

and proceeded to slip that black english donk in. To be honest the hole was quite tight, there was sweat, spit and blood involved but once that transfer case was in there was no stopping her from making that noise... the noise of an engine finding its mounting bolts and hitting home.

I guess I should finalize this project after being such a slack cunt with updating it.

 

So it flew through a VTNZ Wof... YEA RIGHT!! 

 

After repairing more chassis rust and completely overhauling the rear brakes they just wouldn't balance right. I tried all sorts to get them balanced but in the end I think the wof guy got so sick of retests/seeing my face that he gave it the damn sticker.

 

I used it pretty much daily for a few months and while being awesomely awesome it used the same amount of fuel as my LTD, Used/leaked more oil than the gulf of mexico incident and the springs were stiffer than your dad on viagra.

 

Its also put alot of smiles on my face as i surprised plenty of flatpeakers at the lights, climbed some rather large hills and even rescued a rolled Pajero (Spanish slang word meaning 'He who fiddles with himself for sexual gratification'.)

 

While this project was ALOT of hard work and I swore so much at it, I would do it all again... with at least a solid chassis and ANY engine that isn't English!

 

So heres the last pics and this will be my last post on this thread
