    Pulled the Land Rover apart to do final welds on the frame and do body work.
    I am also addressing things I was not happy with with the build up.

    I was not happy with the rear shackles. Originally they seemed fine when i first fabbed it up, but i noticed that after the full weight was on the springs the shackle angle was too much and once i add the hard top, the shackle will hit the frame. So I ended up cutting the shackle mounts and moving them back an inch and I am pretty happy with that.

    Another issue i had was the rear body was not aligned properly with the bulkhead. You would never notice unless you looked at the body line with the doors on. The body mount brakets were a smidge off. I pulled off the brackets and i will remount the tub and redo the mounts. Sometimes you just have to suck it up and go back and re finish to make a person happy.

    Well I have been busy doing stuff I HATE... Body Work.
    I sanded everything down and spent time on the fenders to repair various cracks and missing parts. Filling in the extra holes and closed up the large hole for the second lamp on the fender. It was added at some point and i do not need it.

    Fenders



    I started to put down some color. Since all of these panels are interior and not even seen much I brushed on the paint.



    I primered up the tub last night, today i made it look pretty on the inside




    Mind you this is not a "restoration", there will be flaws and what not, I want to get it back on the road/trail where it belongs.
