    Looks good.

    I am not sure what look your going for, but I think those wheels would fit in well if you painted them.

    So almost got the last big part of the build done. The Rover originally had through the floor pedals, but they were rotted pretty good, I tossed them and was going to make pedals to come from above the footwell. Well i was not happy with the way it would look so I ended up making my own through the floor pedals.

    The Master cylinders are under the floor board. I am using a Corvette brake cylinder and just an after market Clutch MC.


    I spent a bit doing the research on pedal ratio and lengths for the pedals.

    I used 3/8 flat stock for the pedal arms, some round rod for the rod that goes to the foot part. The sleeves have brass bushings to have a smooth movement

    Mocking the outrigger up in the vise





    Mocked on the rig, figuring out the spacing between the pedals on the shaft



    The pedals welded up to the spacer and the white things are just spacers. I need to paint it all


    I still need to pull off the outrigger and weld everything up on it and make a skid plate bracket to protect the setup. Then start plumbing the brakes and mount the slave cylinder.
    I am glad i got this part done, it has been killing me to figure out this part.

    The outrigger is welded in and it is all sitting pretty.

    I welded in a skid plate to protect the pushrods and to make it a bit more presentable.


    The final product for this part. I still need to make the pads for the pedals, but that should not be that hard.

    Lots of little loose ends taken care of today.

    Made some grill supports to bulkhead and added a YJ hood prop to it, so not more 2x4s to hold the hood up





    Finished my spring mounts by boxing and adding support to them to make them a bit better looking




    Set the caster angle and welded up the spring perches to the axles, so it is done
    Added some tabs for the brake lines, removed old tabs from the axle and get things ready for the brake lines that will come in this week.

    Knocked off another project. The Rover front bumper was original but really rotted out.
    I build this one to mimic the original style. It is out of 3x3 square tubing. The Land Rover is looking complete.

    I still haven't touched the Rover in a bit, but I am ramping up to have at it. I got a piece of jewelry for it from a good friend in Florida.





    Of course it is just sitting on the bumper, i am going to try and sink it into the bumper, i have to notch the bumper about an inch to get it to fit.
