Here it is next to my diamond plate stuff.

Posted Image

So the idea I came up with is since the diamond plate is a thick 1/8inch aluminum sheet and is strong but light, I can use that stuff inside. I wanted to mix up the two metals and give this unique trailer a look no one will dare copy.

The inside came out great. I'm more excited now. Time to focus on the rotted corners below. I have to flip this thing over and decide what to do from here. I need to cut.... Well I mean trim.

I trimmed what needs to be removed and got filling in covers for the quarter panels. Using masking tape to draw lines for the corner caps and get a visual on what it would look like and what fits right for this body.

Since I have some weird ADD I decided to start a different part altogether. The wheels. They were bugging me.

Got the wire wheel out (my favorite tool) and went to town.... or the city?
You can see what I mean here

I'm not crazy about the chrome but this is sharp. Minor blemishes but way better now. Noting paint can't fix later if I decide to.

The best part... I'm done cleaning parts and now ready to test fit. The wheels are shinny and the metal is sheared bent and molded for temporary instal for inspection.

I"m really liking this look.

I forget what day this is now but I can tell by dark pictures. I'm home and tired and just want to finish. This is a lot of work. These pictures are from today. So I'm current now.

Thanks Antonio. Been busy with work? I haven't heard from you in a while.

It's crazy... I have over 1,100 views so far. This is really turning out better then I expected. I need to add some storage in the empty spaces. I was hoping for some ideas. I don't have many people saying anything here. I will take your ideas if you have good ones. Like Brenton suggested the diamond plate change, I agreed and I'm happy with the suggestion. Thanks B. Great idea.

I'm going to Hurculiner the inside and then layer the metal over it. Then bolt things lose down after the green is applied and dried.

I'm looking for some LED tail lights and found some ideas that might look good. But nothing set yet. Anyone have an idea? I like the original Beehive lights and found some LED style ones and some standard flat LED 2 inch round lights. Some are very expensive and some are cheesy looking. Most good looking lights are 4 inch round and local but the 2 inch are harder to get in the US. The UK there are more options. I know there are a few guys here who have the defenders and want to upgrade theirs. IDEAS???

Idaho Motor Pool has just gotten a shipment of 3/4 ton Generator trailers. Flat deck with wheel bumps, military pintle hook, 750.00 and up. Make a good base deck starter. They're Southwest of Boise, but the Bend area of Oregon on the way up isn't so bad for wheelin'!

By the way Pedram, FANTASTIC WORK!!! Wish you were around when I had my 109 pick up. She started at the front bumper kinda purty, but sure got pretty homely to flat out ugly by the time we got to the rear end!! Wasn't afraid of anything West of Palo Alto to the beach back then....

Thanks Terry.

I found a site after talking to Chris S about his defender about getting parts and ideas. I might start fabricating the hinges that are missing for the tailgate and get some little parts I can't make easily from them. Like the "Antiluce Catch-Tailgate" which is almost impossible for me to make from scratch. So I need one more of those and I am good for the gate. I will have to modify everything else. I'll start Monday again.

I do want the defender lights but I found a few different styles of LED lights that are for defenders. They are all 2 inch round and mount in the same location. I like the beehive style LEDs more but all the dual function LED lights are costly. I'm not in a rush but need thoughts or ideas if any defender guys have looked into it before. Mark, Chris, Ron, anyone one?

So this past week I have been at it again. Putting some time into the axle and suspension. But first here is my problem with the lights. This is the only color I have and nothing to make it red. I need all four lights and the reason why I'm trying to go LED.

But for now I have more progress on the rest.

Here is the newer Rover axle that uses coils and had disc brakes.

Posted Image


And here is the series axle with leafs and drums.

Posted Image

I'm going with the series axle since I have some plans for it. More parts and a little cleaner approach for it. Might as well right?
All I see is rust and spider webs. Bugs and dirt. I hate it. It needs to be gone. I need paint.

If your not familiar with drums and don't need them here is your ticket. Tools you need.... watch.

Oh, you need to see what's inside.

Remove the hub assembly with bearings. Oh yeah so this is a good bearing "HOW TO" job at the same time.

Posted Image

You need to bend the nut retaining washer flat to get the two nuts out of your spindle. This thread just got dirty!!!
Greasy nuts and screw-driving. Hammer it hard. No don't really hammer it hard. You might slip and hit your bearings. Which I found out are not cheap. GO figure.

After removing the first nut and washer you have another nut and washer behind that. The last washer is a heavy washer. so you cant really mix it up.

http://i591.photobuc...zps3392305b.jpg

There is it. All the nuts are removed and now it's time to pull the hub out. While holding the bearing pull straight out. And fins a clean place for it. I have to reuse all my bearings and bought new seals.

http://i591.photobuc...zps23a60707.jpg

With the hub out of the way you now have access to the backing plate of the drum assembly. Don't gouge your spindle housing. That's kinda important. Your bearings ride on it and there is a seal that keeps the oil off your brakes here.

Get your tools out and start wrenching. I needed two 15MM wrenches. Well a socket and wrench.

After you remove all the nuts and bolts you're ready for the next phase.
