Dave and I managed to locate the series 2 Land Rover that was lost to the beach in January of 1990. Dave saw it in the news and we went and found it.
I have finally gotten the bulk head done. At least there is nothing more that I want to do before galvanising. I have collected and prepared all of the parts that can be shot blasted and some of those will go for galvanising. I have now stripped the wings off the grill, as the front panel will go for galvanising. The wings will get a tidy up and some new aluminium inner wings and parts. I saw snow at my Auntie Jean’s in South Petherton when I visited.
I’ve not posted for a while, guess that not being able to access this blog editor at work is having an affect on my productivity both here and at work.
A couple or more week ends ago I spent the week at Al’s, with Dave working on the bulkhead, Dave and I got the remaining footwell welded in and also got a bunch of patches done.
I’ve been rebuilding my door bottoms. I’d planned on putting the old aluminum skins on, but when I got the old ones off it turned out that they’re badly corroded. So I’m going to have to live with all new ones. Then last weekend I started pulling apart the bulkhead, drilling spot welds and grinding the bad bits. Also Alan and Dave spotted that my exhaust manifold was creaked, see the Youtube video. On the way home I had a blow out on the Volvo. Guess I’ll need a new tyre.
