    Exhaust is done except for the tailpipe. I can now start reassembling the Rover.

    Exhaust is done. Added the rest of the exhaust behind the muffler and wrapped the exhaust in a few spots to try and keep things happy next to the exhaust




    With some help (Thanks Mike!) I got the Bulkhead back on and i hung the doors to just see how it looks in the sunlight . :)








    Next I am going to remount the winch, it interferes with the grill now, once i put the headlights in :(
    and work on getting the fuel system up to snuff.

    this thing is awesome. its like legos, but with a ton of custom work to make them fit together. I just now noticed when reading the whole thread that it was RHD.

    I got it out into the sun today. it will be nice to eventually be able to drive it out of the garage instead of pushing it.
    I finished the rear end install. Set the pinion angle and welded the perches on and welded on the shock mounts. Everything is now bolted up.
    Driveshafts are bolted up.










    I will be starting the wiring soon. i have the fuel system lines run, just need to get a fuel resistant fuel pump harness to get the pump ready for wiring. Then get a fuel filter inline and make some brackets to hold my fuel and power steering hard lines.

    Not that much done today, but i did decide on where to put my electrical heart of the vehicle.
    There is a fairly large storage box under the passenger seat. I am able to fit the battery, Engine ECM and the fuse block


    I can hide it all in there and keep the technology hidden so it still seems a bit vintage . ;)
