      I did the same thing with a harbor freight cement mixer and tie down straps, used walnut shells from my reloading supplies, POR15 sealer. You can turn the mixer in different positions and get coverage on all the areas inside.

          One could feasibly do a load of laundry on the other rear wheel for maximum efficiency. Talk about a spin cycle!

              Any similarity to people who know what they're doing are purely coincidental...

              Yeah but like eagle597 points out with the mixer you can vary the angle of attack...

                You know it's a scott and badvibes production by the blood stains on the gloves.

                  Great video. Mechanic-ing in the truest sense of Land Rover (early LR at least).

                      That was great!

                      started some repair work on pedals. Im assuming the Series 2 clutch and brake paleal assembly is the same and at some point someone cut the upper bracket brace for whatever reason. I welded in the missing piece and replaced two nuts that were stripped.




                      pedal was drilled and the bracket for spring was nearly worn though.


                      welded up the holes and fixed the spring tab



                      does anyone make a replacement plate that goes "around" the pedals inside the cab? (home brake switch removed)


                      this was on the driver side fender - crushed so I straightged it out, before I go fixing it; do these come with the hole in the middle? looks like someone cut this out but maybe thats how it should be

                      bent up


                      straight



                      is this a dual brake master pedal?

                        Nice repair on the pedal tower Jack. For the reinforcement around the pedal towers just buy a top footbox panel and trim it to the correct size. I have a good fender reinforcement if you need one.

                          Thank you. Since posted I found the replacement panel at RoversNorth. I'll probably end up buying the driver side panel since the bottom has been cut and has some rust..

                          add the fender reinforcement to the list

                            Today I finally got time to update the thread and get some work done. Recent fires and local evacuations have once again got my county in a disaster. Oroville dam, Camp Fire and now North Complex Fire. AQI (air quality index) at times reached 999 - it didn't go higher because the sensors only go that high



                            Few weeks ago I picked up a wagon top, rear door and radiator support






                            got some parts back from powder coating


                            I got my order in from Rovers North, including rear crossmember, fuel tank mount kit, steering box kit and a bunch of other stuff

                            today; removed seat box




                            homemade tank, made from stainless and old tank base, 90% super nice + 10% crap = 100% garbage


                            then I went on to remove the top and rear box


                            removed the rest of the crappy exhaust, air tank, misc metal brackets



                            what parts should I strip from this before I get rid of it ?









                            Im in the process of rebuilding the steering box. I dont understand what end float of 2-4 lbs means?

                              my powdercoating place says they do this color all the time - close enough to Marine Blue?

                                Once your steering box is reassembled, the column (without the steering wheel installed) should require 2-4 inch pounds to turn it. If not, add or remove shims (#29 in the photo).


                                The splined part is what you're turning.
