Ian's Shed - Really a garage
« on: January 06, 2013, 07:19:37 PM »
Folks,

What's in my shed???

Well, I am working towards a shed... this is the last four days efforts in a nice, warm 38C garage.  The L/R pictured is another REMLR member's 1964 S2A 88GS. Chassis almost ready for sand blasting.



And here it is stripped. The 4x2" timber pieces screwed to each side are insurance against sudden earthquakes, freak winds and people who come over and have to touch  :D  The rear grey cross member in the background will go back on once the sandblasting is done. Someone in a galaxy far, far away changed it to a Civ one probably some time between 1964 and 2009.


Enjoy.

Cheers Ian.

Thanks Ian for the pictures.....

Some times a smaller shed prevents the collection getting out of hand, and also within the pictures my favorite truck IIA Ex Army........

Just a few pictures to wet your appetite  :D.  Cant get much wetter. >:(  Busy on the tools over the weekend. Bad news is I have been stabbed by a wire bristle from the grinder.  :-[

And I spent yesterday brushing all the rear differential parts. Interesting... Someone long ago knew that it as an 88" diff.  Oh and there were traces of white paint for the black out light.  :)

Enjoy.

For those of you who trawl, I have started on 110-595 as No-one wanted to buy it. The best thing is thatthis is rust free and is simply a pull down and rebuild.  Oh and I have sold the diesel Isuzu it had fitted.
So here we begin.


Around the front for a Karcher to get the bird crap off and remove the engine...

Engine removed and start to clean up the vehicle

And Sand down

then the surface rust was treated and ....

Then primed today:



Enjoy.  So easy I'm doing it one handed literally.

Hi Ian  :)

Progress is looking good.... and pretty quick given your arm at the moment.

Are there any parts you're chasing ? 

Cheers,

Pete

Thanks and yes Pete,

I could do with an S2/S2A Brushguard, that's all I think, new parts galore...
Stuffed if I could lift it though...

Cheers,

Ian

Looking good Ian,

It looks like you have a good solid vehicle to restore.

Im looking forward to seeing it as it goes through the restoration process.

There are not enough fully restored CRs around. :)
