    Working on the Van. Should have a Pop up roof soon. As the roof is bought second hand, and actually it was for a flat roof, I had to make some adjustments.
    Now the end is near. With a little luck I can paint the roof this week and make it nice and ready to be mounted on the van.
    Cutting it.

    The first test. Almost there.

    Hello folks,

    today I just painted the first and second layer of primer onto the pop up roof.
    So that needs drying some time. Then the first black paint on it. Maybe tomorrow.

    Anyway, as I was in painting mode, I took of the pushbar of the Frontera, as it was a bit rusty.

    So, just a lick of hammerite and it looks way better. After our trip to Wales it will be powder coated. So then it is done for a while.
    So with some protector (tectyl) spray I did the under layer.
    [​IMG]
    And then with hammerite the other parts.

    Tonight, when its dried up, I turn it again and finish the front. So tomorrow I can mount it again and that is done then. After that the Roof Rack of the Frontera needs a lick of Hammerite as well. (same story, poweder coating is on its way)

    Thats it for today.

    Put on a new basket rack, then ordered two Scepter jerries, a new set of ratchet straps, and a Super Siphon. I also bought a can to replenish the freon in the AC, as after 162k miles, it's not blowing cold. apologies to the easterners, but it'll be 80 this weekend and I may need to cool down

    I didn't do much but I ordered some parts. An in dash Navigation radio for daily driving and I Ordered larger brakes for the rig. My F150 already had good brakes but I had to replace a rotor so I decided to jump in with both feet, lol.

    The upgraded brakes are from the Ford Expedition. I should have waited because I've been trying convince myself on doing a 7 lug conversion from the stock 5lug. The 7lug would basically be all the same IFS up front except having 7 lugs but the rear upgrades to the larger 10.25" rear end vs. the stock 9.75. I've been told the 9.75 is probably better but I've already been the victim of sheered off lugs in a car, I would hate to see it happen in a truck on the trail.

    Any opinions of 5 lug vs. 7?

    OK! This weekend I did the Pesky Heater Hose repair on my FZJ80! It was a bit of a pain, but now I can offer good advice for anyone attempting the repair! There is a video coming soon!

    hope it wasnt too bad

    Had to replace my waterpump last fall, when my son had everything apart I had him do both hoses, give it a flush & the belts while he was right there

    he also powerwashed all the crude from the radiator, amazing what it picked up from water crossings  & dirt roads etc
