steadily making progress on stuff before I have to buy some tools and rig something so I can get the tub on and off by myself.

the refinished ross



then I welded up the two bottom holes in the tranny cover so I could use the original boot retainer. then marked the boot retainer for the transfer case. I then drilled and tapped all the holes for new 10-24 hardware. this is a personal choice as I don't care for the look of sheet metal fasteners.





Then transfered the radiator support rod from the old to the new and drilled it.


then transferred the mark for the wiper wiring hole


cut out the holes for the rear seat leg retainers and marked the holes for the mounting hardware.




then got the front seats in and started measuring for placement.

Nice. I always enjoy looking at clean restorations, but I have no idea what I'd do with one.

actually the punchouts were already in the repop tub. I had marked the bolt holes buy measuring and centering the retainer clips with the seat in place. I used that old tub to see if it would even line up to the repro. it does and gave me a great reference point.

there is a current issue going on over at the 2a page with several of us installing reproduction tubs having issues with the emergency brake dash support.

I went out this afternoon and decided that since the one (albiet "corrected") was not happening. so I removed the original one from the old tub and the repro from that tub.





There was a pretty big difference between the two set side by side.
then I test fitted the original into the new tub and the biggest issue was that it was too long.
after some measurements I deduced that 3/16" had to come out of the original. I marked
the area to be removed and cut it out. then lined up the two halves and tacked them back together for a test fit.


it fit perfectly without needing further modifications and lined up with the firewall bracket holes.
so i welded it all the way around and ground it down.



then I put it back in place and affixed the firewall bracket bolts. I use a 1/2" bolt with a sleeve on it and two washers to bolt the bracket at the dash so it would stay correctly aligned while I welded it to the dash. once it cooled, I removed the jig bolt, hit it the worked area and dash face with the wire wheel and squirted some primer on it for the time being.

I reinstalled the bracket, handle and cable and it's angle is now good, the cable exits the center of the hole in the firewall and it fits great in the dash. It was well worth the time to do this.

making more progress.

last weekend my dad went up north so I had him stop by and pick me up some new to me original parts to add back to the tub.
footman loops, bow storage pockets, rear bow pockets, a rim for the spare tire rear gas tank hold down and interior front bow pockets. got most of it and the rest the seller is going to ship to me when he extracts them from the parts tubs. $100 for all of it which I thought was a good price.



I had originally made anti squeak pads and various body gaskets out of leather, but am changing that decision due to potential moisture problems and switching it to rubber. I found a great local source for by the foot rubber with great prices so I picked up some for the body and for under the fuel tank. they have this in 36" & 48" widths in thickness up to 3/4"


started by drilling out the spot welds with the spot weld bit. I like to put a small pilot divot with a regular bit to stop any bit wander.




there was a bit of wave to the storage pockets so I clamped it up and flattened them out.




then stripped off the paint before I get them set into the electrolysis tank to rid them of rust.

no pics but I went out and remade the gaskets and anti-sqeak sections out of the rubber i got earlier this week. worked out really nice. also I needed some drill bits, and some hole saws to finish placing holes so I went out and picked some up. also i have an issue as I need to raise and lower the tub to get some stuff done and need to be able to do it myself so I picked up a small chainfall that I will rig up in the rafters so I can do this.

went out and test fitted some items. the threads on the nutserts for the air cleaner brackets are 5/16-18 not 5/16-24 like the oem tub so i added new fasteners to my 2 page list. the good news is the original brackets line up perfectly with the repro tub holes. I then transferred the holes for the firewall data plates but the positioning of the air cleaner bracket is a bit closer than oem so I will have to move the plates down and over by 3/16". I drilled out the hole for the wiper wire. I also marked the dash data plate position. I stripped the old paint off the fuel cap and cut a new rubber gasket for the steering column collar at the floor. Now I need to spend an evening typing up part numbers for the stainless fasteners I need and get them ordered. I do need new data plates as the originals are almost unreadable so before I drill holes to mount them I'll need a new set.

also the repro tub for the bed footman loops has weld nuts that are 12-24 thread. unfortunately they do not make a flat head allen in 12-24 stainless so I have to go with either a flat head or oval head phillips or slot. I cannot tap it larger due to the limitation of the footman loop.

that one is the spare. I the others got the O.D. green from the can. I was skeptical but it held up to tire mounting so go figure.

i suppose it's all in the prep a good clean surface and quality primer. the one thing this build doesn't have a good amount of budget is expensive paint. it has gotten dirty and dusty in the garage and I have washed the painted parts with no issues either. to be honest the paint actually looks more expensive than it is.

got the ignition hole in as well as the dummy coil bracket holes (ignore the bolts there for reference)


Got the passenger seat mounts in.


since I got the new bolts I was able to put the gas tank in and get the under tank rubber strips cut and glued together.


made a template and marked the rear taillight mounting holes.

more progress over the last 2 nights.
with the new hardware I was able to get the fuel tank pads done and could finally put it in and get the tank strap brackets in.








finished blending in the trans cover



started to refinish the access cover that came with the tub.


I had to put the dash support bracket back in (the repro tub doesn't have one) but I really didn't want to weld it back in. the solution was to drill and tap 2 10-24 holes where it meets the dash it worked out very well.




and today some other small parts came from beachwood canvas.
windshield strap


flex line to the fuel pump


canvas tailgate chain covers.



fuel tank strap welting

progress continues.

I got the rear seat frame stripped and painted. gas tank installed so i'll be able to run the fuel line.

today I spent all day getting a crapload of little things done like trimming the toeboard gusset to clear the master cylinder cap, drilling the holes for the body mounts in the rear crossmember.

but I first had to be able to get the tub on and off by myself so I added a beam and hung the chainfall


then installed 3/8" eye bolts into 4 body mount holes that also served as guides when I lower the tub back down.


then hooked up the rope ties and hooray I can get some stuff done.



got the rear crossmember holes marked and drilled and fastened up the rear wiring harness


then reinstalled the ross gear box and set up the steering. got it all even and adjusted so it's pretty nice to have it all rebuilt and set and not have play in the wheel.

Looking damn good. I wish mine were nice looking sometimes.

If my wife hadn't bought the engine in it, I likely would have sold it already for a more stock, and better looking one.
